Once again we ask the question, “How high can this market go?”
Today saw a new all-time intraday ‘breakout’ high for the S&P 500 and we focus our attention – and trading plans – on the breakout level and potential for additional upside continuation via a short-squeeze.
Let’s update our S&P 500 chart from the week and highlight the trending stocks of the day:
For additional planning, be sure to view the broader picture updates from the past sessions:
Simply stated, the buyers overtook the sellers and forced a short-squeeze breakout this morning. We’re trading bullishly above the breakout level as bears lose money to buyers which could fuel a continued breakout towards the simple 2,000 target.
Otherwise, we’ll be on guard for a “Bull Trap” outcome should we see a sudden failure and return under the 1,985 trendline resistance (now potential support/floor) level.
Now, let’s shift our attention to bullish-trending stocks for potential buy-trades the rest of the day:
Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), Biogen (BIIB), Apple (), and Cerner Corp (CERN).
Bearish potential trend day continuity stocks include the following candidates:
Altera Corp (ALTR), Juniper Networks (JNPR), Electronic Arts (EA), and Microchip Tech (MCHP).
