June 7th Swing Watch List

$DISH – Will be watching this for a reversal if the 200EMA cannot hold up. A return to 52-51.50 could be eminent. Short would be under 54 or at 56 if this moves higher first.

$M – Thanks to one of our members for this gem of a setup. Nice gap to fill and a sweet bullish chart. Look for a squeeze and move higher if 34.65 falls. Target is 37, short term. Good option liquidity and moderately low IV, so consider a bull call spread here, maybe a 34/36 Jul16.  If you went long stock, you would need a .75c stop.

$DVN – If oil holds up, I like this for a breakout over the 38 area and a move to +40. Long entry starter over 37.70 and then again at 38.01. Stop will be 37.00 for now.

$TSLA – Will use a bull call spread (debit) since IV is low. Jul16 220/225 for a debit of 2.50 or less.

$BOOT – Long entry over 8.65, stop 8.00. Target is 10.15.

$CGNX – Short watch for reversal. Short is under 44, stop 45. Target is 41.60, then 40.60.
