Swing Trading Strategy Report – Friday, Oct. 27

My Swing Trading Approach

Strength in the pre-market, will look to add another position to the portfolio today. 

Indicators

VIX – Traded, surprisingly, higher for a 4th consecutive day. Expect it to get squashed today. 

T2108 (% of stocks trading below their 40-day moving average): Down nine of the last ten tradning sessions. Here is my write up from yesterday about it

Moving averages (SPX): Failed in the last five minutes to recapture the 10-day moving average, and still below the 5-day as well. 

Industries to Watch Today

Technology – that is the main focus today. Nothing else really matters. 

My Market Sentiment

Tech earnings has everything Nasdaq-related, ready to rally.
