June 15th Swing Watch List

$IBB – A pretty exaggerated sell off after testing resistance and falling back to support with the markets. Looking at another call spread on this. We have had some amazing accuracy with IBB call spreads this year. Will use a Jul16 call spread. Buy to open 265 call, sell to open 270 call for a debit around 2.30 per spread.

$MGT – A big mover with a lot of volatility behind it. Long entry is over 2.57, add spot 2.64. Stop is 2.35. Target is 3.00. Lot of liquidity and capable of big moves if this bull flag breaks out.

$CEQP – Not a big energy fan, but I like the weak setup here. There is room down to 18.50-18. Short entry is under 20.00. Stop will be 21.00.
