February 26th Swing Watch List
TSN – On short watch yet again, for a move back toward reality. Look for short entry under 65.20 and a target of 62.00. The stop will be over 66.
DAL – Another carry forward from yesterday, I still like DAL in between 45 and 52 and will look to get filled on my open iron condor.
HTH – An earnings play that popped on high relative volume just under big resistance. Looking for a long entry over 16.35, stop 16.00. Room here is to 17.25 and then shy of 18.
EGL – A nice recovery and pivot off the lows and now testing resistance. Long over 14.10, stop 13.75. First target is going to be 14.50 and then 15.50 before March 3rd earnings.
NKE – Trading under a large resistance area at 63 following a massive 20% bull run. Looking for a retracement to support at 61.40, 60.50 and 59.50. Short entry will occur closer to the 63.00 level, and not sooner.
