April 6th Swing Watch List
$FIX – Long here is over the top of this funky flag, and at 32.70-32.75. Room here is to 34. Stop will be 32.00 initially. Nice bump in relative volume.
$RUN – A slightly more speculative setup here. RUN has a history of explosive and huge moves. Looking to get in at a key technical area for the next big move. Long is over 6.66-6.70, stop 6.50. First target is 7, then 7.24.
$XON – Even though I am already long IBB, I wouldn’t mind jumping into a weak short setup, as seen with XON. Nice bear chart after the close below its EMAs. Short entry is under 33, stop 34. Room here is down to 30, short term.
