WLT is scheduled to report earnings tomorrow before the open. With this trade up 34% since the entry just two weeks ago & close to the 2nd target, those long might consider whether to hold through earnings or book early profits in order to risk a possible gap against your position. T3 remains the final target for now although additional targets may be added. So far the case for a lasting bottom in WLT & several other of the recently mentioned coal stocks seems to be firming up although it is still too early to say with a high degree of confidence that the latest rally in these names is anything but a dead cat bounce.
Completed Trades are trade ideas that have hit one or more of their price targets. Many trade ideas will list multiple targets as some traders might choose to hold some or all of the position for an additional target(s) after the initial target is hit. Therefore, many trade ideas on this site will often appear in both the “Active” and “Completed” categories simultaneously. Trades are removed from the Active Trades Category either upon hitting the final target or if stopped out before then. Once removed from the Active Trades category, these trades and all associated posts will be archived indefinitely in the Completed Trades category for future reference.
The WLT (Walter Energy Inc) aggressive Long Trade Setup that was posted yesterday went on to break out above the 60 minute bullish falling wedge pattern (triggering an entry) and just hit the first target, T1 at 1.99, for a very quick 10% profit. T2 at 2.59 is my preferred target at this time but as always, consider booking partial or full profits and/or raising your stops, depending on your own unique trading plan. Updated 60 minute chart of WLT (another coal stock):
The SAVE (Spirit Airlines) short trade hit the first profit target (T1 at 53.38) for a 23.3% gain on Monday and has so far traded around that level every day this week.
This is one of many recent examples of why multiple price targets are used as reactions (i.e.- a bounce or consolidation) are common upon the initial tag of each price target. Consider booking partial or full profits and/or lowering your stops if holding out for T2 (48.27), which is remains the final target on this trade.
The PNC (PNC Financial Services Group) short trade hit T1 yesterday which was the sole official profit target at 78.20. I had also listed a second target zone which was likely to be extended as the final target but as I had not made that target official before T1 was hit, I will have to consider this trade completed. For those still short, PNC has a better chance of reaching that second target zone now that the intermediate-term trend is bearish. Consider booking partial or full profits and/or lowering stops if still long. PNC will now be removed from the Active Trades category without any additional updates.
KATE (Kate Spade & Co.) hit the final target, T2 at 27.65, on Sept 26th for a 28.9% profit. I had thought I had updated this one earlier but just noticed it still listed as an Active Short Trade while updating the trade ideas today. As always, traders should have limit orders in place to close positions upon their preferred profit targets unless actively monitoring those positions at all times. For anyone still in the trade, KATE is now down 35% since the short entry at 38.91 at the open on July 30th so at least consider lowering and/or trailing stops at this point if still short. However, as T2 was listed as the final target, KATE will now be moved to the Completed Trades category.
The BXS short trade hit the second target, T2 at 19.33, yesterday for a profit of 18.1% since the original short entry. Consider booking full profits and/or raising stops, depending on your trading plan. T3 at 18.30 remains the final target for now but as always, reactions off the initial tag of each target level are likely.
The AXP (American Express Co.) short trade hit the final target, T3 at 78.67, yesterday for a 14.4% gain from the entry price of 91.94 on July 28th. Consider booking full profits as the R/R no longer warrants remaining short at this time.
