Swing Trade Screen Picks – Here are Two on the Buy Side that Stick Out

For the week ended February 3, there were 49 charts with multiple buy signals as of Thursday or Friday, and only 10 with multiple sells. Most were uninteresting. But there were two buys that really stood out, so I am adding them to the list this morning.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

Withholding Taxes Fell Sharply in January

I started this update before the jobs report, was interrupted, and came back to this Yooge upside surprise. I apologize for this reading being disjointed. However, it’s clear that this BLS report is makeup for severely understating the December jobs gain, which was apparent from the huge surge in December withholding. January’s withholding has largely reversed that. Here’s what this means for your trading.

Composite Liquidity Should Be Bearish, Here’s Why It’s Not Right Now

Composite liquidity is flat and will remain so until the Fed restarts QE. That should be bearish, but it’s not right now. There are a couple of reasons for that. And they are reasons to hold off from looking to get short right now. But are they reason enough to go long? Here’s the answer.

Swing Trade Screen Picks – Energetic Buys and Shorts

The small list for last week started with two closeouts on Monday and one hold, resulting in an average net gain of 1.6% on an average holding period of 9 calendar days. This is not a success because I gave up too easily on the two electric utility shorts. Both were down substantially at the end of the week.

But the first rule of swing trading is not to lose money, and given the gyrations last week, in that regard, this result was ok. So, it’s time to look ahead, not backward. Learn from each experience and press on! Of course, the market usually forces us to unlearn what we just learned. 😄

For the week ended January 20, there were 11 charts with second or third buy signals as the week ended, and 49 with second or third sells. It makes me question the upside, but in reviewing the sell side charts, they all looked too early at best. I chose only one to add to the list. I liked 3 of the buys. Interestingly, they were natural gas and silver based. Non-subscribers click here for access.

Last week’s 2 picks that were closed out and the one still open are shown on the table below (subscriber report). I have added a trailing stop to that one. In addition, I’m adding the 4 new picks to the list as of the opening price on Monday January 23. Charts are below (subscriber report). Non-subscribers click here for access.

Nothing is Broken

The market’s little pullback last week didn’t break anything. The short term trend is in apparent consolidation while the intermediate term still looks to be upward.

Cycles– The 13 week cycle high is ideally due on xxxxxxxx, but up to 4 weeks of variance would be normal depending on the skew of longer cycles. The mid week pullback last week invalidated prior cycle projections. The target is now xxxxxxx. Short term cycles appear to have peaked. I expect a little more xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx before the rest of the 13 week cycle up phase plays out. Non subscribers click here to access.

Third Rail – The rally faces 3 resistance trends. The first is short term, running from 3xxx to xxxxx this week. The next is the long term trend from the market top in January 2022. That slides from xxxx to xxxx this week. Finally there’s an intermediate trendline running from xxxx to xxxx. If those are cleared, the first target is likely to be the xxxx xxxx. Non subscribers click here to access.

To reverse this, the market would first need to smash the lower short term uptrend channel line running from xxxx to xxxx this week. If they stay above that, then ultimately we might expect 2 more thrusts to a target of xxxx. Non subscribers click here to access.

Long Term Weekly Chart – The market has cleared the downtrend line from the January 2022 peak, but faces more resistance around xxxx. It must get past that to signal with greater certainty that the bear cycle is complete. Non subscribers click here to access.

Monthly Chart –The market will need to end January above xxxx to break the major downtrend channel. Non subscribers click here to access.

Cycle Screening Measures – I now rate the short term pattern xxxxxxx, while the intermediate term pattern deserves xxxxxxx x xxxxxx rating. It suggests xxxxxxx trading. So we wait for a xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxx. Non subscribers click here to access.
