The SPY traded sharply lower throughout yesterday’s session and tested a significant point of support. Support will lie at the low of yesterday’s range at $212.58 which also aligns with near term support, now creating a pivot point. Below $212.57 lies $212.31 and $210.78.

October 12th Swing Watch List

$JBHT – A nice flat top at 82.00 makes this interesting if energy moves higher. Options aren’t liquid enough to trade, but the stock is. Long entry is over 82.04, stop 81.30. Target is 84.

$SDRL – A nice bullish flag after a big move up in energy. If market rallies, look for SDRL to pop. Long entry is over 2.81, stop 2.67. Target is 3.00 and then 3.25 if we get a squeeze over that resistance.

$LULU – A big downward oversold spiral for this company. Looking to play a reversal out of oversold conditions. Long entry is over 58.04, but you could sneak a starter position over 57.00, stop at 56.

$VFC – On short watch below 54. If the market falls, I think 54 breaks and we get a test of that support area 52. Short entry is under 54, stop is over 55.
