April 26th Swing Watch List

$CFMS – A solid daily bull falg setup with a great ATR and nice range. Clear defined pivot at 13.30 area. Long will be over 13.30, stop 13.00. Room is to 14 and then 15. Love the risk reward on this one.

$RAX – A sweet early reversal setup. This looks GREAT for a breakdown under the 23.65 area. Short starter entry is under 24, then a definite add for size under 23.64. Target will be 21.30.
