Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/23/2014The Bulls Continued Their March

Tuesday as the U.S. stock market closed higher, with the S&P 500 extending its winning streak to six days – its longest streak of gains since September 2013.

That said, we’re technically still in a market correction due to the lack of a clear confirmation of the current rally attempt; PPS and increases in volume so far haven’t been strong enough to conclude that a shift in market direction has occurred. But yes, I’m still long biased, but will make sure the follow the trend no matter where it’ll take me…

Investors Business Daily has the current outlook listed as market in correction.

My watchlist for Wednesday, April 23, 2014 looks as follow:

$DANG – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/23/2014$DANG – E-Commerce China Dangdang Inc. (NYSE) finished up +4.33% today on larger than normal volume as it finally got a nice push of its support at the consolidation area of $12′ish. I see a continued long play here with $14 as the first magnet and then resistance at the $15 level.

Would love to see weak open and then r/g for the rip north on heavy volume…

As of this writing (9:29 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently down -0.23% in the extended after hours market (AH).

$EJ – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/23/2014$EJ – E-House (China) Holdings Ltd. (NYSE) gained +5.88% today and tomorrow I’m looking for the same momo as it’ll do its best to confirm a bounce breakout. Need stronger volume though. And need to establish trend at the open before jumping in.

As of this writing (9:29 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently flat in the extended after hours market (AH).

$SUNE – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/23/2014$SUNE – SunEdison Inc. (NYSE) shot up +11.88% today on monster volume and is now resting at resistance right north of the $20 level. Tomorrow I’d love to see follow-through momentum to challenge $23. Ideally we get wash at the open and then r/g for the push.

As of this writing (9:30 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently up +0.45% in the extended after hours market (AH).

Profit.ly - Become a Better Trader
$USAT – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/23/2014$USAT – USA Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ) has been trading in a fairly tight range for the past couple of months with a few breakout attempts, but never really was able to take off; Today it gained +1.92% on low volume, so could this be the beginning of the push? Not sure, but if it happens I’ll be ready. Though resistance point @ $2.25, which has to be breached on heavy volume spike.

As of this writing (10:05 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently flat in the extended after hours market (AH).

Steve McQueenSteady As She Goes: S&P 500 Extends Its Winning Streak To

the longest in six months as we’re entering the thick of earnings season this week.

Today was a choppy one and we could potentially be in for a few days of sideways action as the market is trying to figure out the next round. That said, I’m seeing a lot of strong bounces left and right which lead me to believe that this market is somewhat stronger than previously thought.

Despite the bullish trend for the week, Investors Business Daily continues to have the current outlook listed as market in correction.

$HIL – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/22/2014$HIL – Hill International Inc. (NYSE) shot up another +5.56% today on monster volume and I definitely see more upside; There’s no overhead resistance as it topped new 52 week high. That said, if it gaps up o/n and/or go parabolic at the open I’ll look for a short, but otherwise I’ll be eyeing the long with a weak open and r/g for the push towards $7.50 and beyond.

$MOBI – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/22/2014$MOBI – Sky-mobi Ltd. (NASDAQ) gained +8.32% today on fair volume. I see $8 as the magnet and if it can break through that on heavy volume it’ll have its sight set on $9.50 for a strong breakout. Ideally we get weak open and the r/g for the rip. Will not look to short it not matter what.

Profit.ly - Become a Better Trader
$MXWL – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/22/2014$MXWL – Maxwell Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ) is getting ready for a breakout as it shot up +12.03% on strong volume. It sure looks like it’s ready to make new highs and I’ll be watching for push through $16.10 on heavy volume.

As of this writing (10:48 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently up +0.02% in the extended after hours market (AH).

$VIP – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/22/2014$VIP – VimpelCom Ltd. (NASDAQ) was up +2.78% today after all was said and done. I know a lot of people were looking to short this today but it blasted through $9′ish resistance nicely on strong so tomorrow I’ll be looking for the follow-through. Next area of resistance is at the $10.40 level.

If it gaps up hard o/n and rips right out of the gate I won’t be interested.

As of this writing (10:49 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently flat in the extended after hours market (AH).

 


Quote of the Day

“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress shall have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the People.”

Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/21/2014NASDAQ Ends Three-Week Losing

streak as the tech heavy index inched up a quarter of a percent on increased volume.

The S&P 500 not wanting to be outdone, gained a modest +0.14% – also on rising volume.

Thursday was options expirations day, which usually spikes volume. That said; From a purely technical level, the action for the week was still very positive as the NASDAQ found support at its 200dma and the S&P 500 reclaimed its 50-day line.

Quarterly earnings reports continued with mixed results, where some investors and traders alike were trying to decipher whether or not some results were positive or negative.

So will the bullish trend continue this coming week? Well, we’ll see…

Despite the bullish trend for the week, Investors Business Daily continues to have the current outlook listed as market in correction.

Just a month ago this play was over $7 but has since lost over 60% and I’m now keeping this on bounce watch.

Looking for a break through $3.25 on massive strong volume; Ideally weak open and then r/g for the rip.

$FCEL – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/21/2014$FCEL – FuelCell Energy Inc. (NASDAQ) gained +2.51% Thursday and has consolidated nicely at the ~2.40′ish area.

I feel it has now found good solid support right below $12. If we can get a good push (on killer volume) through that resistance I can see a good 5-10% upside in the short-term.

As of this writing (7:03 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently down -0.34% in the extended after hours market (AH).

 


Quote of the Day

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: The decayed and degraded sense of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse… A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.”

– John Stuart Mill

Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/17/2014Three’s A Charm As Stocks Rallied

Wednesday sending the S&P 500 back to the green for the year. Better-than-expected economic growth data from China and an upbeat industrial production report at home were a few of the catalysts for keeping this entire week in positive territory.

Meanwhile, the NASDAQ recouped some of the heavy losses from last week and is still sitting pretty above the ‘magical’ 4,000 mark, and subsequently, its rising 200dma.

After hours, Google ($GOOG) traded sharply lower after its first-quarter earnings fell short of analysts’ expectations, mainly due to lower ad rates and reported declining profit margin. Revenue, on the other hand, grew almost 20%, far exceeding the gains of 12% and 17% in the prior two quarters.

Volume was light today and with tomorrow being the last trading day for the week (Friday is Good Friday and all U.S. market are closed), volume will sure to be even more minuscule; Choppy and volatile.

Investors Business Daily continues to have the current outlook listed as market in correction.

My watchlist for Thursday, April 17, 2014 has the following lineup:

$HK – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/17/2014$HK – Halcon Resources Corp. (NYSE) keeps impressing and today was no exception as it gained a healthy +2.91% on heavy volume, which put it way over 10% for the week. If you look at the 6 month chart above you’ll see how close we are to put to the test the $5.70′ish resistance level.

So yes, I’ll have this on long watch; Ideally weak open and then r/g for the reversal and continued push north.

As of this writing (10:01 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently down -1.13% in the extended after hours market (AH).

Profit.ly - Become a Better Trader
$KNDI – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/17/2014$KNDI – Kandi Technologies Group Inc. (NASDAQ) is a mystery for sure. Great economic growth data coming out of China yet this ‘clean fuel – no brainer’ play has a hard time to get some traction. It’s extremely volatile and definitely marches to the beat of its own drum and doesn’t really care for the market in general. Today it was virtually flat as it was up a mere +0.93%.

As of this writing (10:01 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently down -2.78% in the extended after hours market (AH) and is now seriously testing the support area at the $11.50′ish area. Yes, it could break down and dive deeper but I’m not feeling it and will not go short at this point.

Instead I’ll be looking for a serious bounce; Watching the open for a wash and the r/g for the rip back up over $12. This is definitely a scalper as it has a tendency to spike in the morning and then fade for the rest of the day. Don’t get caught holding it; If you can make 3-5% in an hour, take the money and run.

$PDS – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/17/2014$PDS – Precision Drilling Corp. (NYSE) was up +5.86% on killer volume and is now butting up against the $12.50 resistance. Tomorrow I’ll be looking for a breakout on same heavy volume.

As of this writing (10:03 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently up +0.08% in the extended after hours market (AH).

Profit.ly - Become a Better Trader
$TWTR – Max Ghezzi (Redemptor) Peak Performance Trader 04/17/2014$TWTR – Twitter Inc. (NYSE) is on long watch. Today it was down -2.42% after Tuesday’s bounce, but yes, it’s still oversold and I’m looking for it to challenge not only $47.50 but also $50. Look for weak open and the r/g for the rip.

As of this writing (10:02 PM PST) the PPS of this stock is currently down -0.45% in the extended after hours market (AH).
