SVNT, UNTD and trading with the trend

As you may know, I trade few titles and hold for a couple of days only. I usually look to hold 1-5 days. This may be elementary comment to most but as I many a times, I am green. I was never really paying attention to the general market directions. I think was getting getting dropped out at my stops when the market in general was moving against my trade. so for January. I will start looking at general market trend and try to trade with the trend only.

For the short-term, we have the NASDAQ down, the S&P somewhat lateral and the Dow still up. So for today, I was hunting for a few shorts on NASDAQ only. I am starting with two titles for now: SVNT and UNTD.

OSG and SWC on 12/28/06

I am attempting to post position trading candidates again. I intend to slap a couple of charts on once in a while for positions trading. Again, these are not for day trading so positions should be valid for a couple of days. I have not yet decided wether I will follow-up when I close my interest in these. Today I look at OSG and SWC. FYI, I am again going back to my first love and maintaining a list of current candidates on StockTickr.

Technical Screens for 11/13/06

I know I have been pretty quiet recently. Work is insane for one and, as my previous posts have shown, my trading has been horrible. I am not changing anything per say but I am reviewing and scrutinizing everything I do a lot more.

I am trying some screens, all technical, to try and come up with a short watchlist of charts to look at in the morning. The trouble is, my skills analyzing charts need polishing, which means I cannot have a very long list otherwise I will spend all day trying to read the darn charts and I will not get anything done. So the screens may change as I try different versions.

Here are text files for those importing in trading apps: Death Cross MA 50/200 and Golden Cross MA 50/200.
