Rithika's Chase Summary

SPX staying above 5304 is intraday bullish BUT I still see 5340 as strong resistance.
Keep in mind the big intraday shake-n-bake last Thursday, which means we could digest a few days before heading lower. I'm not bullish until we can get/stay > 5340 on wkly OR bearish until we break 5261.
Silver in a squeeze with Copper is helping Swing Longs GDX + XME, but XLV is under heavy distribution with XLP. I'm patient with both.
New Swing Short ideas setting up:
XLF, CRM, MNST, ARM was my best chase idea long this morning as it broke higher out of a daily wedge: STOP 115, TRIGGER 118, 126 PT

Rithika and I will get in sync so these will be entered into CHASE portfolio and triggered in chase-trade-notification moving forward. For Now... it's already there.
ARM Above 126.59 on wkly would make for nice swing long but I think it digests now.
DKNG was best chase idea short this morning as I read the news of a 40% tax hit in state of Illinois. It fell 12% right into 35.53 wkly support AFTER already warning it was a nice H&S formation on the wkly just looking for a trigger to break 39.87. It broke.
Fave Semi play is ASML on wkly wedge break out. MU, KLAC + AMAT nicest continuation trends higher.
DELL eps 5/30 - with lots of call selling ahead of the event. 160 >< is line-in sand.
Big picture, I'm expecting more grinding action into end of week/month then breakout/breakdown. I expect the next volatility 'event' will be once it tags 10.60 - likely before Yellen's QRA event June 30th - but we will look for it into FOMC June 12th + June OpEx June 21st.
ASML looks ready to break higher, digest above 952 to push to 1000
HUBS news with GOOGL, getting chased into 660
MNST breaks 52.24 next is 50,48
ORCL holds over 122.5, next is 124, 127
ARM over 118 into 123, 126.59
AAPL below 192 coming back into 189.78
PDD 160$ finally tagged and came back in on those massive $140P 16 million for august posted under option flow, if weakness continues 151 next
EBAY pushing 54.89 resistance, bid ask spread too wide but there are buyers coming into $60 calls
AMZN if you are swing long must hold over 180 to push, below has gap to 176.13,173.9
MRK 127.78 is support careful here if it doesnt hold next is 126.5
CRWD below 350 into 346,340 stop: 355 already played out
MSFT holds 430 we continue pushing higher

Thursday & Friday are the 2 days w/ the "big" events. Market is tired but not broken.

MAG7 - Gapped up premarket - bullish start to the week.

Weighted Dollar / Yields Ratio - still holding above 288; Still looking for 280 to get tested.

IWF:IWD - gapped up premarket into 1.96 daily. Still moving higher - still bullish. "Growth over Value" - it's out performing.


T2100 - still under the weekly high; potential digestion period but not falling apart.

T2104 - still under the weekly high; Inside week. Tagged the 21-day support. not much this morning.

T2123 - has been bullish; still under the weekly high. sideways to lower. Tired.

T2126 - still under the weekly high; inside week for the 2'nd week.

WTI CRUDE - testing that 79.11 daily level again. sideways over the last fwe weeks but setting lower lows. Crude bid but not above the key level.

COPX - still in play.

COST - looks perfectly fine. Reports in 2 days. No edge with earnings.

CELH - Fell into the 55-day MA. Bounced off that level. "big news" dropped it. Looking for weekly 10MA support;

MSFT - bullish weekly.

MU - bullish; still moving higher. Very bullish. Great options - digesting at 130 weekly.

MNST - Fell out on the hourly. Looks like a big short; but this is an aggressive company. Nimble. Looks like such a great short trade chart. Back to triple support.. if this does not bounce here it's going to 50.00$ then 48.00 weekly. Right on the cliff; not broken yet.

NVDA - still bullish & expecting higher.

NOW - looks like a breakdown of 720; Keep it below 737; 696 and then the 200-day MA as short PT's

ORCL - 124.60 daily resistance. Massive Shake. Get above 124.60 daily for a cont play higher. Looks good.
