April 1st Swing Watch List

$BZH – An interesting wedge setup, but we are already long a BZH  May16 Call spread. I really like this chart for a long over 8.84 ad spot 9.33. Stop is 8.50 and target is 11.00. If I end up taking this, it will be short term, as I don’t want to be long the call spread and and shares for very long.

$ANIP – A nice move up to bullish trend reversal territory near the 50EMA. This put in a double bottom of 30.00 support, and is now looking good for higher, if IBB wants to hold up. Room here is to 36 or so short term. Long entry is over 34.08, stop 33.50.

$TGP – A series of higher highs and higher lows, this is tending along support accumulating nicely for a leg up. The range to the gap is large enough to test this one out. Looking for a long over 12.85, stop 12.50. Room is to 14.00 or so, and then it is into the gap back up to 17.

$CVGI –  On watch for a return back to 3, maybe 3.25. Nice bullish chart with a recent history of big moves at these prices. Long entry is over 2.70, stop 2.50.
