The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.

For the past few weeks, more stocks are closing above the previous daily highs versus those closing below previous lows. All of the stocks discussed over this time period also show improving consitions, as measured by the trending ADX indicator. We also filtered for stocks closing in the upper half of their daily trading range to focus on relative strength candidates.

Previous Highs – Scan

The strategy; quality stocks like those below should show signs of buyers again today, given Monday activity. If our candidate(s) start to lift after the opening range, consider a position with a stop at the low of the day.

Many of these stocks continue appearing every day for the past few weeks.


Target – Previous Highs

Target (TGT) is one example of a stock in this scan closing above previous daily highs. Many stocks in this group followed suit. DG, DLTR, COST and WMT all printed bullish candles on Monday.

ADX confirms the bullish trend is strong.

Target (TGT) has earnings scheduled for May 22-23 (unconfirmed). The company beat expectations for the past four quarters.

Futures are green, trading near 2918 (+/-) just shy of the morning highs.
