amit1986 started this thread Markets slightly flat the moment. Latest 5-minute candle has penetrated yesterday's high. Markets look to be heading up, but that could change. As for now though, if things continue as they are, I'll be favoring long positions as opposed to short positions. We'll see what happens around 10am. Got crude inventories data coming out at 10:30am EST which may provoke some market movement.

amit1986 started this thread Really fast turn around in the markets. S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures have now made new lows. Shorts are now more favorable at this point in time.

amit1986 started this thread Got a few stocks to watch today. Markets are currently down a significant amount, but that could all change with the data we have coming out in about 4 minutes. If this trend continues, I will be favoring short positions.

Massive gap down on ASML. There was resistance at the $30 whole number (which is expected), and the current 5-minute candle is showing that support has now become resistance. Time and Sales not displaying enough momentum at the moment to confirm any entries, but will keep an eye on it in the event momentum changes and goes in my favor.

Semi-conductor stocks may also present good moves, along with ABX, MRVL, HD, GYMB, and STP. There are many others as well.

amit1986 started this thread No entry on ASML at the moment. Momentum was not there on the breakout. If you look at the chart, you can see it's now turned around and heading back up above the $30 whole number. Furthermore, data released on 10am EST showed positive news, which has resulted in a slight turnaround in the markets.

amit1986 started this thread CVS looking good for a break to the upside. Price currently hovering around the $31 whole number. Want to see the current 5-minute candle close above the whole number. A subsequent break of the high of the candle will trigger an entry, if Time and Sales confirm momentum.

amit1986 started this thread CVS did break out with some strong buying pressure, but T&S did not yet confirm an entry as there quite some selling pressure subsequent to each breakout. High of day now at 31.15. Still keep an eye on it.

amit1986 started this thread I tried a couple of entries on CVS but constantly closed them out for breakeven as time and sales reversed momentum. It went up a good 20 cents on the break of 31.20, now it's reversed...
