The following long trades exceeded their previous suggested stop parameters last week and will be removed from the Active Trades Category:

AAPL- Printed a weekly close below the bottom of the support zone on Friday.

EXM-  Exceeded both the suggested stop level of 0.72 on Friday.

NM- Fell below the 4.12 suggest stop level early last week.

The JOUT long still looks fine for now and the following Active Long Trades or Long Setups will be updated under separate posts soon:  HL, HMY, CVU, XSD, PEIX.

Admin note:  For those receiving post notifications by email, we are still working on restoring the feature to select or deselect specific post categories (e.g.- short trade setups, completed trades, market analysis,etc...). We don't have a firm ETA on the fix yet but hope to have it restored by the end of the week.  The RSS feed button will also be restored soon as well for those who prefer to follow the blog posts in a reader.

*+-NM has impulsively broken out of a bull flag consolidation/continuation pattern which formed after hitting the first target.  As there is a thin zone between T1 & T2, this opens the door for a potentially quick move up to T2 (final target).

*+-NM has hit the first target of 4.30 for a 13.2% gain from entry.  Although I have my concerns about a pending pullback in the broad markets, this chart still looks constructive at this time.  Remember, I have been setting the prices targets below the [continue reading…]
