February 5th Watch List

TGH – A lovely looking top forming just under 11 here. Also, my TAS indicators tell me there is a squeeze zone just above 11. Long entry is over 10.85 and then an add over 11.03. Room here is to 12.60 or so on the chart with light resistance over the 11.30 area.

HST – Another bull flagISH breakout here over the 20EMA. Nice room back to 15 and then 15.50. Long entry is over 14.30, stop 14.00.

KND – Nice wedge formation here with a lot of room to pop. A long over 10 should push things to 11.15 and then 12.30. A stop will be 9.75 initially.

ANF – Potential short move back toward 23.90 and then 23.40 if sell off continues following lower highs. Short entry is under 25.00, stop 25.50.
