August 30th Swing Watch List

$CVRR – Not normally an oil trader, but this one is a decent setup with a lot of room over $7. Looking for a long over 6.85-6.89, stop 6.59. Target will be 7.50, then 8.

$TMST – Long entry over 10.45-10.50, stop 10.00 Target is 11, 11.50. Not a bad look if it can clear 10.50.

$PMTS – Looking for a gap fill trade here. This would be a quicker in and out setup, possibly even a day trade. Long entry is over 5.40, stop 5.15. Target here is potentially 7.30 or so.

$BMY – On short watch for Tuesday. This is a low IV setup, which means a bear put spread could pay quickly. The catch? We need 58 to fall and the market to be weak. This will be  a trade for a red SPY day, otherwise, we will focus on the long stuff.
