Watch List - Usual Suspects

As requested by several readers, here is my usual suspects, watch list of stocks:

AAPL, ADSK, AFFX, AKAM, AKS, ALXN, AMGN, AMLN, AMZN, ARTC, BCSI, BIDU, BIIB, CAL, CELG, CMI, CIEN, CROX, CSCO, DLTR, DRYS, EMC, ESRX, FFIV, FSLR, FTEK, FWLT, GME, GRMN, HANS, IBM, INTC, JASO, JCOM, JOYG, KLAC, LRCX, LEH, MDR, MNST, MRVL, NEM, NTAP, NTRI, NVDA, PAYX, RIMM, RVBD, SNDK, TECD, TEVA, VLO, VMW, VSEA

I use the Trade_Ideas scanner (above) to monitor the activity of my watch list all day. If I see high quality price activity with high relative volume, the stock will get my full attention. The alerts I focus on are 15 min OR BO, consolidation BO as well as price upticks and down ticks.

I also set alerts in Esignal for pivot points.

The watch list is highly leveraged in favor of tech stocks as I prefer NASDAQ to NYSE, however, I try to have at least one name in each of the major industry groups that move the markets.

Welcome Raj

Jamie,
Can you load a watchlist into Trade-Ideas and have it alert you to a 15min. OR BO? My watchlist is approximately 60-70 stocks and its very cumbersome to set an OR BO alert on each of them. Thanks and great call on that CFC.

Jamie said...

Alex,

Yes, you can load your watch list and gapper list into TI and get any kind of alert you need. It is a great tool and even gives you the quality in terms of days and relative volume.

it is awesome that you blog your trades that were successful.
what about trades that were not. That would be a great help as well.
thx

Gurlate,

I hear ya. No losers of note today but a lot of missed opportunities.

What does BO stand for?

Thanks

Jamie said...

Sdip,

BO stands for breakout as opposed to the usual.

Could you please give further details of the alerts for Esignal pivot points that you use. What is the efs file ?

Thanks

Jamie said...

Anon,

No EFS file, its all visual based on my definition of PP. You can read about my ideas on PP in the Intro to WSW blog in Key Posts.
