Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

MONTHLY - Bearish. Expansion of range on this timeframe lining up with previous hammer candle of December. If December "tail" low is violated it is a strong sell signal.

WEEKLY - Bullish. Close at new all time high, however on smaller range on this timeframe.

DAILY - Bullish. Market continues to consolidate at highs with small intraday liquidation breaks that take out potential sellers.

Good morning traders. Ametek (AME) has an interesting chart that we came across during a nightly scanning run recently.

AME trades in a very large range in relatively straight moves. We've drawn a trendline across the top which defines an area of resistance that could be coming into play soon.

Your best bet in these situations is to put a GTC short limit order out for a small number of shares in lieu of an alert. When the bell rings you'll take it much more seriously than just an alert. If the price action warrants it, then go in with your full size. If it appears that the stock is not going to turn at that level, then kill the trade for a very small loss.

We see the trendline resistance currently sitting at $54.23 and believe this would be an optimum area to short the stock for a short term pullback of 3-5 days.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores

The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.


ShadowTrader Sectors were mixed on Thursday. Eleven closed higher while fourteen ended lower. DRG remains overbought signal with six consecutive higher closes. Beyond this, no other sectors, nor the broad market, are overbought or oversold at this time.

ShadowTraderPro Swing Advisory - HCP Stop triggered

February 26, 2015
 
Company: HCP Inc. (HCP)
Action: Sold the stock (stop triggered)
Price: $41.85
Entry Price: $41.96
Exit Price $41.85
Shares: 125
Stop: n/a
Target: n/a

Trade Explanation: HCP hit our trailing stop earlier today.  We are out of the position for a loss of 0.11 cents per share.  The stock has since recovered again so more aggressive traders may elect to hold as a dividend play.  As a swing trading play, however, we are considering this a "time stop" as well as a price stop since a good amount of time has gone by now since the support level and price has not had any meaningful advance.

Looking Ahead

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

MONTHLY - Bearish. Expansion of range on this timeframe lining up with previous hammer candle of December. If December "tail" low is violated it is a strong sell signal.

WEEKLY - Bullish. Close at new all time high, however on smaller range on this timeframe.

DAILY - Bullish to Neutral. New all time high yesterday but value unchanged.

Good morning traders. Yesterday we exited our AAPL long trade which we have been in since early February when the stock broke out at point 1 on the chart above. While we left a few points on the table we let technicals rather than emotion guide our exit which generally speaking is a better way of doing things and over time can help you to maximize gains and cut losses quickly. Please observe the chart below.

Our exit occurred yesterday afternoon at point 2. We used this area as our mental stop because once a trendline is broken it can open up more weakness to the downside very quickly. Think of it as a balloon with a small puncture that can often lead to more air escaping than you'd like.

The trendline that has been broken is a secondary and is drawn with the thicker black line on the chart. What will be interesting going forward is the next trendline which ends at point 3 currently. This is where we see the next support (and therefore buy) point kicking in for AAPL shares. This line will of course move up over time automatically. We'll be monitoring it closely for another long trade in the stock.

ShadowTraderPro Swing Advisory - AAPL sell the stock

February 25, 2015
 
Company: Apple (AAPL)
Action: Sell the stock
Price: $129.00
Entry Price: $119.82
Exit Price 129.00
Shares: 250
Stop: n/a
Target: n/a

Trade Explanation: AAPL has traded below an ascending trendline and as such we are selling the position here ahead of our $135 price target to lock in a good sized gain of over 9 points.  We feel the stock could have a stronger liquidation break over the next few days.  We will be looking to reenter this long when we see some support come in.

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

MONTHLY - Bearish. Expansion of range on this timeframe lining up with previous hammer candle of December. If December "tail" low is violated it is a strong sell signal.

WEEKLY - Bullish. Close at new all time high, however on smaller range on this timeframe.

DAILY - Bullish. Market continues to trade at new all time highs daily. While liquidation breaks can happen at any time, the trend is clearly higher.

Good morning traders. Please observe the chart below.

On September 19, 2014, Alibaba (BABA) went public to much fanfare and has been on a roller coaster ride since. The "Amazon of China" (and also the "PayPal of China" apparently) was weak early on for its first month or so of trading, then went on a tear from the low 80's to an all time high of $120. The stock has since been facing serious headwinds and selling off steadily even in the context of a very strong tape in the broad market.

With BABA nearing it's all time lows at $83.81, we feel the shares could be coming into a buy point. It is very common if you look back at historical charts of recent IPO's that they often double bottom. Many new issues follow this very same pattern where they establish an all time low relatively early in their life. When this low is retested some months later it is often a buying opportunity. This very same setup is very close to happening in BABA currently. Aggressive traders can place buy limit orders within 0.50 above and below this turning point for long entry into the stock with stops no more than $2 below. Targets would be to the declining 20ma (currently at $88.82) and then to the prevailing downtrend line which is currently around $98.

Under The Hood

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores

The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.


ShadowTrader Sectors were mixed on Tuesday. Fifteen closed higher while twelve ended lower. TOB and XAL both flagged overbought signals while OSX reached oversold status.

Our statistical tracking of the ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores has triggered a short term bearish signal for the broad market as of Tuesday's close.

This indicator has been correct 86 of the last 119 signals as a predictor of a forthcoming short term move by the broad market. An indication is credited as being successful if within three trading days of the alert, SPY closes below its closing price on the day the alert was triggered.

ShadowTraderPro Swing Advisory - AAPL set sell limit order

Looking Ahead

 

Market Outlook - Check here daily for the current S&P 500 Index Monthly, Weekly, and Daily bias.

MONTHLY - Bearish. Expansion of range on this timeframe lining up with previous hammer candle of December. If December "tail" low is violated it is a strong sell signal.

WEEKLY - Bullish. Close at new all time high, however on smaller range on this timeframe.

DAILY - Bullish to Neutral. Day of balance yesterday with market holding inside of upper distribution of prior day.

Good morning traders. An update of our proprietary tracking of broad market money flow (MF) is pictured below.

We last reported on MF in the February 13th issue of the ShadowTraderPro Swing Trader.

At that time (green oval) we stated MF was "as healthy as we have seen it since early November of 2014". The chart above illustrates that MF is still surging higher ten days later.

The broad market is susceptible to periodic liquidation breaks, but based on our tracking of MF, the overall direction of price should be higher in the near to medium term.

 

Under The Hood

 

When we say "under the hood" we mean market internals, ie: what was really happening behind the scenes. ShadowTraders who listen to our daily broadcast every day live on the thinkorswim platform know that all closing figures on the major averages should only be interpreted in the context of market internals. Look for convergences and divergences in the breadth, a/d line, and trin figures below to either confirm or cast doubt on what all those talking heads on TV are telling you.

ShadowTrader Sector Trend Scores

 

The ShadowTrader Sector Trend Score matrix is a proprietary method of assigning values to twenty five sectors that are a representative cross-section of the market as a whole. The heat map in the trend score column defines the current strength or weakness of that sector using a proprietary weighting formula. Sectors bolded in green and red are the two sectors that experienced the largest absolute gain and loss in trend score over the prior day. We strongly urge subscribers to read the full explanation of the meaning and calculation of the trend scores in the Swing Trader User's Guide.


ShadowTrader Sectors were mixed on Monday. Twelve closed higher while thirteen ended lower. $DJUSHC remained overbought as it closed higher for the ninth consecutive day. BTK also remained overbought with it's seventh consecutive higher close. $DJUSCA flagged a new overbought signal be closing higher for the fifth consecutive day.

WEEKLY - Bullish. Close at new all time high, however on smaller range on this timeframe.

DAILY - Bullish. Close at new all time high after liquidation break and look below range and failing to find longer term sellers.

Good morning traders. We have six long trade ideas listed in today's Bulls and Bears section. One is a long setup in Dover Corp. (DOV). Please observe the chart below.

Since hitting a price low on 12/15/14, DOV has made a series of higher lows (blue arrows). This past week, the stock tested two prior highs made since 12/15/14. Instead of reversing from this level, DOV has held its ground and now looks poised to break higher into the lower resistance area overhead.

We are using Friday's price bar to define the entry and stop levels for a long position. We've also noted the prior gap that remains open and should come into play as a price target once the stock trades higher.
