April 13th Swing Watch List

$HUN – A nice multi top testing big, long term resistance under 14. Looking for a move back toward 15 or 16, short term. This is a liquid name with a smaller ATR, so I plan to size up. Looking for a long over 13.85, add over 14. Stop will be 13.50 and first target will be 14.60.

$XPO – On watch again after gapping away from us last time! Long is over 30.50 or so, stop 30.00. Room here is to 32 and then 34.

$NVIV – A nice consolidation along support after a sharp and BIG move up. Looking for another similar move. Long here is over 6.80, stop 6.38. Room here is to 7.75 and beyond.

$HUBS – This one is testing big support long term here. If it falls and market comes in, I expect a quick push lower. Looking for an entry under 39.00, stop 40.00. Room here is to 37.50 and then 36.50.
