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

The watchlist for the week and homebuilder stocks are bullish. Follow through days have been lucrative as we have been selling the morning session highs and buying back those trending stocks later in the day, for the most part., if they show relative strength versus the market. Criteria for entry, the 21d Strategy.

Consumer Discretionary Stocks

The consumer discretionary sector broke out to new highs on Tuesday, while the weekly remains in a bullish channel.

Online retailers and dropship companies are positioned in the consumer discretionary sector as well. Canadian powerhouse Shopify (SHOP), is trading higher in the pre-market session on an earnings beat, so we would watch SFIX and ETSY for similar interest today. We are specifically looking for high RVOL in either of these names.

Alternative Energy Stocks

Energy stocks showed some relative strength as well, with the alternative energy stocks posting some interesting gains worth watching. For example, some solar stocks moved higher; watch CSIQ and SPWR.

Sunpower appears to be tracing out the right side of a cup and handle pattern. The top of the cup or recent highs (15.57) would be a reasonable target over the coming weeks, as the 9ema is above the bullish 21d. MACD and RSI are confirming.

SPWR shows a 21d about to cross over the 200ema in this bullish drive. Canadian Solar (CSIQ) printed a big bullish candle yesterday.

Real Estate Stocks – REITs

There are several interesting sub-groups to choose from; specialty, industrial / office, hotel, residential, mortgage, and diversified REITs. All of these show promising patterns that you can check out here.

City Office REIT (CIO) appears ready to breakout to fresh 52-week highs. Price action is above the 9ema and 21d. Add on pullbacks to either of these that hold, where buyers return and confirm.

MACD has crossed back above its bullish signal line. RSI is above 50 and rising. Confirm new entries with RVOL greater than 2.0.

Telecom Stocks – 5G

Inseego (INSG) is back on our radar. volume is increasing as the stock builds a base and catapults higher off recent pivot lows. Check the weekly as well.

Watch for a flag first thing in the morning. We’d like to take INSG for another ride and/or add. Stop under the low of the day.
