October 26th Swing Watch List

$NEE – Looking for a breakout over 125 resistance. A lower IV setup before earnings run up could give us a quick profit here. Looking at a Nov16 125/130 bull call spread for a debit of 1.95. Alternatives are long the stock over 126.00, or long the Nov16 125 call for 3.20.

$NVDA – On short watch after crushing this long multiple times this year. Looking for a pull back to the 9ema. Going into this super high IV name with a credit spread/bear call spread. Looking at the Dec16 75/80 bear call spread for a credit of 1.45.  Alternatives here are to short the stock with an entry under 71.25 or to buy a Dec16 70 put for 3.35.
