Trading Homework for Trade-date Wednesday August 21st 2019

Some bull and bear flags are finally getting close to maturity. But because many of them have weekly overbought and oversold levels, I don’t expect them to get to new highs or lows once they go. Maybe a retest up/down and then another range.

Equities seem to be respecting the resistance levels that formed last week.


  • GC: Forming bull flag – bouncing from what could be the lower end of a range yesterday.
  • SI: Same as gold.
  • HG: Breaking from what looks like a bear flag – but the whole structure is inside a range.
  • ZB: Still working off sell divs.
  • ZC: Seems poised for new lows
  • LC: Z-day with short bias – first up day after a series of limit-down days and down days.
  • LH: 2 days up into resistance – short.
  • NG: 2 days up – overbought. Short bias.
  • EMD/ES/NQ/YM/NK/FESX: All dropping from resistance levels.
  • EC: Oversold into support. Might be worth nibbling at the long side.
  • CD: Holding support – barely. Push lower might be a short.
  • BP: Bear flag – almost back to grail sale level.
  • JY: Forming a sloppy bull flag.
  • NE1: Negative consolidation with buy divergences.
  • PA: At resistance and overbought.
