Also if anyone has time to run Tech Trader, post any good signals you find.  Tried to run a scan on my laptop just now and it drained my battery in 10 minutes.

Careful with DB. Program says the upper channel line is actually already broken. It might pullback to retest it but just fyi

I closed out of RSX and WYNN at breakeven - don't want to stay in a position too long.  Just in cash now.
Going to just wait for new signals tomorrow.

Watching BK for an upper trendline break.  Needs to close higher for the break to validate.

Added more on WYNN at $2.30 to the few calls I picked up yesterday.  Thinking we can complete that break today with the rest of the market rallying.  Cut losses on CLWR at $.20

Also keeping tabs on MET, waiting for confirmation at close.

Picked up MET Nov 37x calls at .86 on pullback and volume spike.

Added Nov 21x calls for CHK, also trendline break.  Avoiding BK for now - was hoping for a pullback but it just keeps going straight up.

WYNN broke.  A close above 119 would be ideal.

What do you think. yes, I know its GS again. But the last trade went well Smiley

technically broke 2 days ago  Undecided, worth going in still?

What's your time frame and what are you trading based on?
I think banks could continue for a day or two more but I'm watching for an exit at the moment rather than entry, time-span for just a few days of course.
