February 16th Watch List
SHOO – A previous short watch idea that is now on its way back up after bouncing on support. Long entry over 33.50, stop 33.00. Room here is to 33.80 and the 34.90 or so.
URBN – A nice uptrend after a rejection of the lows when this broke down under 20. Firmly cruising higher over the 20 and 50 EMA in all market conditions, this one has room back to reality. Long entry is over 25, add 25.20. Room here is to 27.20 and then 28.60. Stop will be 24.50 initially.
MOS – After consolidating for a bit at the 20 EMA and following a lack luster earnings performance, if market heads toward the lows, look for this to follow. Nice liquidity and decent ATR. Room here is down to 22.00 lows, but then back toward 20 after that. Short entry is under 22.50, add 22.00. Stop will be 23.00.
