Stock Market Flips to Bullish News as Gold Nears 1600
The stock market continues it's daily change from bearish to bullish headlines. Today the news from Hong Kong see the pre-market futures surging.
So what do we do? How do we place trades with conviction? How to do we allocate capital with a high trade expectation?
We follow the tape.
If the stock market is giving us a bullish open, which stocks were strong recently when the tape was weak? Which stocks closed strong and showed bullish order flow?
There's never a reason to guess or feel insecure about making money. You just need a simple way to track the order flow. Relative strength is an easy way that anybody can know exactly what to do.
Here's my scan for the day. Stocks with bullish order flow, closed above the open by 2% (on a day the market was weak). Plus they all meet my minimum criteria for volume and average true range. (Which strikes that balance between opportunity and liquidity)
One final thing to notice in the scan. "relative volume." This means the stock performed well and traded it's normal (or above average volume) which means the institutions were active.
Think about how powerful that is to know. Institutions were actively buying on a weak day.
Have a profitable day.
