Oil Prices Rise | Stocks to Trade 10-12-15

The stock market news and recaps over the weekend focused on price action moving higher.

I think this is correct, but the market needs to pause. Stocks are overbought. A professional day trader must be aware of when to be long, and when to look for an entry that justifies the risk. I don’t see Friday’s one day pause as enough time to consolidate recent gains.

I would be surprised if we have a trend day higher today.

Oil prices rise this morning as signs that a reduction in active rigs will help improve prices further.

Day Trading Game Plan: The SPY ETF Outlook

The SPY breakout last week is impressive, especially with the light volume pause on Friday. The $205 area is the next target. I think the stock market needs another day or two to catch its breath. Looking deeper into many charts we are overbought or near resistance.

Pete’s Notes:

  • TSLA still a sell-short but it’s oversold. It may need a day or two before it resumes lower.
  • The financials continue to offer no clues.Bearish to neutral at best.
  • Gold is getting some attention.

Charts in Focus

Mallinckrodt Public Limited Company. MNK

The stock market is due for a pause which means stocks setting up as a short-sale are most likely to get bigger moves as the buyers step aside for a day. MNK is in a clean bear flag with a $10 profit target down to the $56 area. A day trader could game plan to trade the stock short the next couple of trading sessions.
