August 16th Swing Watch List

ZBRA – On reversal watch for a short off the 70.00 resistance spot. Moving up 50% in the last month and a half, this thing hasn’t slowed. If we get a tap and fail of the 70 area, I want to ride this short using the Nov70/65 bear put spread. This low IV setup could really take off for us.

MYCC – On swing watch for a breakout to the long side after MULTIPLE taps at this level. We NEED to get over 15.25-15.30, so that will be our entry. Our no BS stop will be at 15.00 and there will be room to 17.20 or so.
