March 31st Swing Watch List

$SPY – Reaching December resistance with a high RSI and light volume. Looking for a short term pull back here. Will be using a credit spread to keep risk small here. Looking at the May16 210/215 call spread, credit of around 1.40-1.45. STO May16 210c, BTO May16 215c. This is a great hedge opportunity for anyone holding long positions for a the next couple weeks heading into earnings.

$YELP – A nice move up after earnings lows. This has just completed a pull back to support and is now curling back up. IF market stays strong, I like this for a move back 23.00. Long entry is over 20.60-20.75, stop 20.00.

$HCHC – An interesting setup following a massive spike in 2 day relative volume. This has good range, but needs to sustain the volume. Long is over 3.76, stop 3.50. Room to 4.10 and then 5.

$XON – On short watch as this big mover is struggling to hold support at the EMAs & 33 area. Looking for a breakdown to 29.50-30. Short entry under 33, stop 34. This has a wide ATR, so give it room and consider smaller size!
