Shipping Stocks At or Near Resistance (video)

Many of the shipping stocks that were posted as long trade ideas in the trading room on Thursday have already ripped up 50-200% or more in just a couple of trading session & are now at or approaching key resistance/target levels which could offer a quick pullback trade. Some of my favorites, along with possible reversal points & pullback targets, are discussed in this video. note: Although the ticker symbols for the stocks discussed in this video will appear in under the Short Trade Setups category, these stock are only unofficial trade ideas, without official price targets or suggested stops.

shipping stocks update- part 1

i've been so focused on trading the short-side that i've neglected the long trade ideas lately.  although most of the active long trades are sucking wind along with the market lately, only a couple have been stopped out & will be removed from the active trades category (EXM & EGLE). here are the updated daily charts with notes and suggested stop parameters for the remaining shippers in the active long trades category: DSX, DRYS, & PRGN

shipping stocks update

all the recently triggered shipping stocks still look fine today, regardless of the pullback in the group (which isn't a shocker after the moves they had yesterday). PRGN, EGLE, EXM, & DSX are all either back to or still above their recent breakout levels while DRYS is just below but sitting on that lower support line shown on the previous daily charts.  as these are very high beta plays, best to give them a little room on the stops otherwise the odds of being stopped out if swing trading them is pretty high.  ideal stops for most swing traders who entered [...]

PRGN long triggered

the PRGN long setup has now triggered an entry.  targets marked. note:  another shipping stock in the long setups, DSX, quickly poked it's head above it's downtrend line this morning but pulled right back in.  i'd suggest waiting for another move above before entering that one.

PRGN set-up targets added

PRGN is still only a Trade Set-up ( a long-side entry would be triggered on a break above the primary downtrend line) but i've gone ahead and added targets to this updated daily chart.  if the pattern triggers an entry soon, i favor at least T2 (second target) being hit but i did add T1 for those might prefer to take a quick gain on the trade.  might not look like much but T1 would be about a 10% gain, assuming PRGN triggers an entry around .57 in the next few days.
