October 6th Swing Watch List

$TCK – A monster uptrender since January, with extremely low IV. This thing historically pulls back to the 20 or even 50 EMA, then reverses and trends higher. Textbook chart. I want to try some of this for myself! Looking to lock up profits using a call spread, Nov16 18/20c for a debit of .74. Alternatives here are a long entry over 18.00 with stock, or buying the Nov16 18c for a debit of 1.55.

$WLL – Today, I got short energy with XLE puts, but I like the flag on WLL enough to keep an eye on it. Long entry is over 9.00, stop 8.69. Target is 9.80.

$XNCR – This short watch candidate made it to the list following a falling off after its near parabolic move up to highs around 26. Showing no signs of recovery, This should provide some short opportunity in a down market. Short entry is under 23.28, add spot under 23.00. Target is 22.50 and then 22. Stop will be 24.15.
