3 Stocks That Are Breaking Out ($DKS, $AA, and $POT)

Evan Medeiros

With the US equity markets back on the rise today, it’s time to review the watch-list for some quality trading setups and long ideas.

The following stocks are a sampling of what we’re watching over at The Trade Risk. Each of these stocks is attempting to breakout above key levels: Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS), Alcoa Corporation (NYSE:AA), and Potash (NYSE:POT).

 

1.  Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) 

Shares of $DKS are trying to emerge as a breakout candidate from a multi-month base. A strong close today above 61 is likely to set this pattern into motion.

2.  Alcoa (AA)

Shares of $AA are looking good after pulling back for about a week and digesting the November run up. It now looks like we have a low risk entry to jump aboard Alcoa’s stock for a developing uptrend… or for a quick profit play on a trade back to recent highs.

3.  Potash (POT)

This looks to be setting up as a longer term trade idea as Potash attempts to reverse a multi-year downtrend. Potash stock is breaking out above significant long term resistance.
