On Friday, the Nasdaq opened flat and after a brief blip
up, chopped lower to close poorly.
Friday’s action brings the Nasdaq to the 2100 support
level. If broken, 2000, which corresponds with the 50-day moving
average, will likely be the next support level.
So what do we do? We remain in chop mode. However, based on
the number of stocks that are setup, I remain constructive on the market. I am
concerned about the last of follow through as of late. Therefore, I think the
best thing to do is to put your watch list of stocks together and keep an eye on
them. I see no reason to bet the farm until we see signs of rallying out of this
range. Therefore, continue to focus on the long side but keep it light, wait for
entries and above all, HONOR YOUR STOPS.

action suggests that it has the potential to resume its strong uptrend.
No Tickee, No Tradee
On Friday, both EXPE and AGIL, mentioned Thursday night,
both traded lower. However, neither one “triggered”–traded above the
prior 1-2 bar highs. As you can see, this simple rule can often* keep you out of
trouble. Wait for entries.
of luck with your trading on Monday!
Protective stops on every trade!
*Obviously, like all trading rules, it doesn’t always
work. NUE and SONS triggered but did not follow though.
