Swing Trade Screen Picks – Read My List, No New Shorts

Based on Thursday’s closing prices, the swing trade screens generated 57 charts which met all buy side criteria for visual review, and 75 which met all sell criteria. This again suggests that this is a mature up-move, not one in its early stages. However, the margin and total numbers are too small to suggest a broad extended downturn.  Non-subscribers click here for access.

List performance improved from the week before. The average gain was 7.4% on an average holding period of 25 calendar days. That’s versus a gain of 4.8% on an average holding period of 26 days, the previous week. This includes picks closed out over the course of the week and those still open. Non-subscribers click here for access.

The list’s current recovery is more than sufficient to overtake the net loss on all closeouts in February, which had a net loss of 4.2% on an average holding period of 17 calendar days. This does not include the 12 remaining open positions currently on the list, which have an average gain of 13.8% on an average holding period of 23 days. Non-subscribers click here for access.

This morning, I reviewed all of the charts produced by the screens. I was skeptical about the sell signals since they were mostly from stocks still in uptrends. While some of them will crack, most won’t and I don’t like the odds against shorting stocks in uptrends. The remainder had already been downtrending for months, or were stuck in ranges with multiple whipsaw signals. I skipped those as well. Non-subscribers click here for access.

On the buy side, most charts again looked to be too late in the game, but there were 3 that I liked for their potential to be late-stage movers, or long-term breakouts that look likely to extend. Non-subscribers click here for access.

Tracking of the new picks will assume a half position purchase on the opening price and half on the close as of today, March 1. Non-subscribers click here for access.

3 picks hit stops since the last report and 4 others were closed out as of last week’s opening print. I have added or adjusted stops on several of the remaining picks. The rest I’m content to let ride for this week. The table below shows open picks and those closed out last week. Non-subscribers click here for access.
