Second Wind – Swing Trade Picks For Week of May 10, 2021

2/16/21 Every week I run technical stock screens covering all NYSE and NASD stocks trading above $6 and averaging more than 1 million shares a day. This typically results in between 15 and 50 charts to review visually. I’m looking for low risk, high reward price structures, which I’m not smart enough to program into the screening process. But it’s ok. I like to look at charts. 😊

List performance was stable last week, with the average gain remaining +2.6% on an average holding period of 9 days, down from 12 days the week before. This assumes cash trades, no margin, no options.

4 picks hit stop triggers, leaving 6 on the list. 3 of those are shorts. 3 are longs. I have adjusted stops on all of them.

Here’s the list performance by symbol last week along with updated closeouts, and adjusted stop levels (table in report- subscribers only). Click here to subscribe, 90 days risk free for first time. This assumes cash trades, no margin, no options.  

Stock Market Wobbly But Refusing to Break

Cycles are mixed, with all shorter cycles in down phases that are still flat, but could grow teeth. The longer term structures and outlook stay bullish.

List performance degraded last week, with the average gain dropping to +2.5% on an average holding period of 12 days. That includes open picks and those that triggered stops during the week. Remaining picks are shaky. I have tightened stops.

New for this week, I’ve added 5 shorts and no longs to the list.

This table summarizes recent list performance.

Get ’em While They’re Hot – Swing Trade Picks For Week of April 26, 2021

I took some time off from trading this week, which was probably a good thing, considering the whippiness and suddenness of the changes of direction. I ran screens during the week, but did not look at them. For the week there were 115 buy signals and 137 sell signals. The picks below are from the screen I ran from Friday’s data.

Every week I run technical stock screens covering all NYSE and NASD stocks trading above $6 and averaging more than 1 million shares a day. Then I apply technical filters looking for short term cycle buy and sell signals near key longer period cycle support ranges. This typically results in between 30 and 50 charts to review visually. I’m looking for low risk, high reward price structures, which I’m not smart enough to program into the screening process. But it’s ok. I like to look at charts. 😊

Last week was a rough ride with all the whipsaws. 5 stops got clipped. The chart pick list had an average gain of 3.5% with an average holding period of 13 calendar days.

Space Needle Construction Under Way

Is the stock market constructing a space needle pattern on the charts? Cycles remain in gear to the upside for all time frames from 4 weeks to 10-12 months. We have updated price projections for the tops projected for early this summer. But in the short run, look for more foundation building. Don’t let that trick you into thinking that it’s something that it isn’t.

Swing Trade Picks For Week of April 19, 2021

Every week I run technical stock screens covering all NYSE and NASD stocks trading above $6 and averaging more than 1 million shares a day. This typically results in between 15 and 50 charts to review visually. I’m looking for low risk, high reward price structures, which I’m not smart enough to program into the screening process. But it’s ok. I like to look at charts. 😊

The list had an average gain of 6.0% with an average holding period of 15 calendar days last week. It was well positioned to ride the rally as all of the picks were buys. There were no shorts.

This table below shows how that compares with the previous 6 weeks. It was the best performance over this period.

This Monster is Poised to Explode

The S&P has now broken through a long term uptrend line that dates from the 2014 peak.

All intermediate and short cycles remain in gear to the upside. There are updated projections on the 13 week cycle and 10-12 month cycle. They are eyepopping for bulls, and eye watering for bears.

The third rail chart is in a meltup. This report shows you its parameters.

Cycle screening measures continue to confirm the uptrend. They show no sign of reversal.

The chart pick list had an average gain of 3.3% with an average holding period of 11 calendar days (1.6 weeks) last week. I have adjusted trailing stop takeout prices for this week.

The current screen from charts as of April 9, had 41 total signals with 17 bullish signals against 24 bearish signals. I chose 4 of the buys to add to the chart picks this week.

Technical Trader Special Report- This Week’s Swing Trade Picks

Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave When First We Update a Spreadsheet from Fed Data

I got into a bit of a pickle this weekend when updating my Primary Dealer position and Financing charts. The spreadsheets that I use to create them are massive aggregations of multiple New York Fed data tables. I need to create dozens of linked tables to collect and aggregate that data into two coherent story telling charts.

I made one small change in one of the two workbooks by adding a couple lines to accommodate an extra week of data. Simple, right? That caused a series of cascading errors in the two linked worksheets. The New York Fed doesn’t make it easy, to aggregate this data. In fact, they make it nearly impossible, which is probably why I’m the only one crazy enough to try this at home.

I didn’t realize the error until I was finished and looked at the chart. It was trash. It was all trash.

I spent 3 hours, until midnight last night, rebuilding all of it, after spending 3 hours building it. So I don’t have a finished report on that data as I had intended, nor was I able to get to the technical report on Sunday night as I usually do.

That’s my sob story excuse for presenting the Technical Trader report for you in two parts this morning, which may be a better way to do it anyway. 😀 First, I’ll start with the chart picks, herein. I’ll get the technical market overview out to you well before New York opens.

If I’m lucky, I’ll get that Primary Dealer report out to Liquidity Trader Money Trends subscribers this morning also.

Thanks for your commiseration and support!

Lee
