The Job Numbers are out and the market likes it so far, SPY is up $1 pre-market. I’m a fan of gap ups when I’m fully loaded, not so much when I have decent long watch-list. Gap-ups make it tricky when you are looking to buy stocks.
My list is long today; there are many great set-ups. I will focus a little extra on $CNAT, $CRNT, $WLB, and $ENG.
Here is the rest of the list;
We have an interest in these stocks if and only if they can get through yesterday’s high plus .10-cents, that is typically where out buy stops will be. This single criterion will narrow down your list to a handful of names unless of course, the market is super strong. You can also narrow down the list by float, price, sector, preference, etc.
These ideas are what we consider swing trades that can last anywhere from 1-10 days. Most stocks if not all go through momentum burst that lasts 1-10 days that momentum burst is what we look to take advantage of.
