All but four of the others, all bull signals, had options that are unsuitable for building the leveraged and hedged trades that I'm looking for.
Two of the final four, AVB and AMGN, remain below resistance on the chart. I'm putting them on the Watchlist with alerts.
Two are true breakouts: INTU and XRT. I already hold a bull position in XRT, leaving INTU as a candidate for analysis.
Of the innovators that gave bull signals, NVO failed confirmation, but JBLU passed, and it is also a candidate for analysis.
Two symbols from the Watchlist were awaiting confirmation today after falling below support on the downside. OII failed confirmation. USO passed and is also a candidate for analysis.
So that's INTU, JBLU and USO to be analyzed today as potential bull plays and AVB and AMGN added to the Watchlist.
New Watchlist alerts
- AVB >181.32
- AMGN >173.14
I shall say up front that I'm not at all sanguine about taking on so many bull plays in today's market. More thoughts on that when I do the analyses.
