Stocks reviving after trade-related turmoil.
Market Summary (continued)
The action on Wednesday certainly makes it appear that any pullback is going to be something less than the December low, at least on this round. Over the weekend and early last week, I talked about a smaller pullback bringing the SP500 to 2800.
After Wednesday's action and the second "down" session in the pullback, I am inclined to adjust the pullback to an even shallower level such as the 50-day SMA, where it held on the Wednesday low. The SP500 traded in a tight range all session, holding support without any issues. Stocks that struggled mightily on Tuesday such as WDAY and PCTY managed -- in some cases -- to even out the keel. While we are not out of the woods, the market has demonstrated better actions.
The other indices are similar, though not as clear, as the SP500.
DJ30 -- 50 day SMA on a tight range. Perhaps it is as clear as the SP500.
SP400 is a bit different -- holding with a doji at the 50 day EMA. On a different 50 day, the same look is evident.
RUTX a doji with tail at the 20 day EMA.
NASDAQ could test a bit more to the 50 day EMA (7742; closed at 7792) before it is ready.
SOX was down, gapping back below the 50 day EMA. It stopped at the 20 day EMA and pretty much filled the upside gap from Monday. While this forecast is not as clear as the SP500's prediction, it remains an important level for the market to try and hold the line.
NOTE: The figures and information above are as of Thursday, June 13.

Here's a trade from "The Daily" and insights into our trading strategy:
Sexy is in the eye of the beholder, particularly when the beholder is a brokerage account. DE may not be the most glamorous stock in the market, and with the China trade war, it is no longer the beloved green and yellow we all know from the farm belt. Indeed, it was more like black and blue in May. However, the saying is that out of adversity arises opportunity. If you did not play it as it fell, you could play it as it recovered. Or both.
We saw the nasty gap lower on 5/17 to the old support level. Then, DE stopped there and immediately rebounded. When the sellers take a stock down hard but cannot keep it down, you take notice. DE bounced, tested and then jumped into the gap zone on 5/29. When that happens, a gap fill is likely. We put it on the report, and then, as DE moved higher, we entered with some July $140 strike call options for $7.00 since the stock was trading at $142.38.
DE had one more quick test for the move, rebounding intraday. Then, it proceeded to move higher. While it was not running like a deer, it was not plodding either. After experiencing a steady upside for six sessions, it touched the 50 day EMA, our initial target, on 6/10. We sold half the position for $12.00, banking just over 70%. It tested a bit and is now back at the 50 day EMA. We are watching to see if it can break higher and fill the next gap up at 155. If it moves higher, we'll let it. If it stalls here, we will bank the rest of the solid gain.
SNAP (Snap Inc.)
We entered with some stock at $11.95 and some October $11.00 call options for $2.20. While this was a nice initial move, it took SNAP another couple of sessions to snap to it. It made a quick doji-test of the 10 day EMA then shot higher on 6/4. It then blasted higher on into the end of last week, coming ever so close to our initial target. Then, SNAP spent the week in a lateral consolidation on extremely low trade. This was perfect as the stock was consolidating a good move and no one was selling.
On Thursday, SNAP was on the move again. It gapped upside, rallied on a good shot of volume, broke into a higher rally high and hit the initial target. Per the plan, we sold half our stock for $14.21, banking almost 19%. We then sold half of our options for $3.75, banking 70%. Not only does the October expiration give us time to let it work, with this break higher, it looks as if SNAP wants to work some more.

2) STOCK SPLIT REPORT
Here's a leader play and our current analysis.
NASDAQ:MSFT (Microsoft-- $131.49; -0.60; optionable): Operating System and Cloud Computing Company Profile
3) IH ALERTS
NYSE:UBER (Uber--$42.17; -0.28; optionable): Transportation
STATUS: UBER formed its first base on May 16 and broke out 6/5. It then experienced a strong upside break to a new high on a strong trading volume. It then faded over the past week in a very orderly, low volume fashion. It then held to the 20 day EMA during the Tuesday and Wednesday lows and rebounded as the market closed. This is a great set up. We will move in after there is a solid break higher through the entry point. A rally to the target will gain 14% on the stock and 80%ish on the options.
