Trading Setups: 5 Stocks To Watch (SLV, ABMD, ZIOP, MDXG, NOC)

trading stocksGiven the broad oversold conditions, today’s bounce should not have been a surprise to anyone. As a result, several short-term trading setups emerged this morning.

The S&P 500 bounced right off its 200 day moving average (dma) and ended the day in the 2090-2100 resistance area. The Russell 2000 had a textbook opening flush under the 200dma, followed by a potent bullish reversal.

The question now, of course, is where will the market go from here. Given the oversold conditions we should not be surprised to see it continue a little longer, especially on more oversold indices like the Russell 2000. But we should also be prepared in case it fails.

The following are the five potential long trading setups I will be watching tomorrow:

ABIOMED, Inc. (ABMD) – The stock is showing impressive relative strength and a lovely flag at the right side of a four-month base. ABMD seems like it is getting ready for a push through 75 and breakout to new highs

MiMedx Group (MDXG) – Another impressive flag within a well defined consolidation base. If MDXG can push through 13 it would put it on a path to reach the measured move target of 14.50-15.00. I highlighted the trading setup on MDXG a few weeks back.

Northrop Grumman (NOC) – Mid-July breakout attempt led to a controlled pullback to support at the 50dma. Now the question is whether it can bounce back over 165.

iShares Silver ETF (SLV) –  The Silver ETF has very oversold conditions. Combined with recent narrow price action, SLV could be ready to embark upon a more substantive oversold bounce. The next day or two will be key.

ZIOPHARM Oncology, Inc. (ZIOP) – ZIOP is another stock with a well defined base and a consolidation flag. I’m expecting continuation through 13 and breakout to new highs. I cover ZIOP in early July.
