Banking Stocks and the Best Swing Trading Strategy
In a stock screen of recent pullbacks in the strongest stocks in the market that are still near their 20 day high, banking stocks were the common theme.
Specifically, this best swing trading strategy screen is scanning for:
Price: Above 20, Average Volume: 50 SMA > 20K, Near 20 day High which limits the maximum distance to the 20 day high to 5%, Price Below SMA 10, Price Above SMA 20.
Citigroup presents a good setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately and the volatility has been reduced. A pullback is taking place, which may present a nice opportunity for an entry. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 67.45. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 65.75, a stop order could be placed below this zone. Notice how well pocket pivot signals (blue dots) have given good entry points for swing long trades.
