After spending the weekend focusing on refining my Big Gain Hunting scan, I've come to realize the importance of a new high on the RSI as it confirms the power behind a stock. Knowing that a stock has more momentum behind that any time in the last 3 years makes it easier to buy when it looks like it is coming in.
MVIS was my first target this morning. I could see this was going to gap up. But I waited until the open it faded quick in the morning I bought at 2.92.
Buying the fade this morning was easier that I knew MVIS was showing more RSI power than at any time in the last 3 years! That's significant as it suggests the character of this stock is changing. So while I could have banged this out as swing trade. The weekly shows that there could be a lot more here.
On REPH there was a nice Fishhook Breakout. I wasn't sold on this early as there bid seemed flimsy at 6.10 and under 6.00 the pattern would fail. But when the bid firmed up to 6.33 I hit the ask at 6.40.--and I am glad that I did as it ran and closed up a $1 from my buy point
Why did I buy what looked like a flimsy breakout? The weekly tells everything. RSI all time high on the breakout told me there was something more here so despite not having volume confirm and a timid breakout I went for it. The last hour it really went.
CRMD has one of the highest momentum in the entire market. Today it pulled back and I found my Low Risk Entry.
On the Weekly, CRMD has an all time high RSI, Looking for a weekly fishhook.
On the daily:
CRMD had two bounces off the its 10 day EMA-- That will identify support and the stop for the trade while we wait for the Weekly to Breakout.
Has a multi-year weekly RSI breakout. As today's move took it over 70 on the weekly I both.
CYTX has a nice move on the daily after pulling back and reversing on Friday.
AGIO was a trade I had entered prior to my weekend RSI study. I realized after studying the best performing stocks that this stock had too many flaws at this point as did my strategy for it.
Finally, I closed my AGIO position as I wasn't thrilled with the setup and trying to catch a bottom of a momo stock that's range bound can be a dangerous game. I exit this trade with a 1% portfolio loss.
The range was too wide for the size I had on and I'm not overly optimistic that this breaks to the upside when range breaks.
The Weekly RSI has sold off
