Stocks on radar this week

After looking through a couple hundred charts from a quant scan, these are my favorites.

PUDA,ROSE MTZ,MIPS,CIV,SM,DAR,SMSI,MEE,ENH,ALXN,ST

Look for trades on both the long and short side of these stocks depending on the tape.

Always short weak stocks in a down market and buy strong stocks in up market, although there are always a few exceptions to that.

Transportation Rail Sector

Boosted higher by earnings from CSX Corp., the Transportation Rail group broke through its April highs and a channel it had been trading in for over the last six months.

Showing a spike in volume and clearing resistance, bulls can feel encouraged about potential upside momentum.

Moving higher in sympathy with earnings from CSX, Norfolk Southern (NSC) saw accumulation (+89% rate) advancing nearly 4% today.

Breaking through resistance and showing relative strength, similiar to the group, traders can watch for further upside potential into earnings on 10/27.

Favorites: NSC (Group Favorite), CSX, KSU, UNP

Fed Day Review

I'm a bit tardy on this but, I wanted to go over the action on Tuesday after the FOMC. Normally in my observation of Fed day or news in general, the first and second moves are wrong and the third move is right. This day took a bit more patience, Gold and Miners took off along with the entire market(gold stocks hung in though) only to do a complete head fake. @Legacy_Trades called the move to a tee. A push to 1140's on the Emini and a sharp pullback. Lesson: be prepared, don't think you know where the market is going, trade the tape not what you think. I did not make much of any off these moves because I'm trying to stay on the sidelines during these extreme moves.

Sector Review Retail

The retail sector received a downgrade as Moody's cut the industry outlook to stable from positive on the belief that EBIT growth will slow.

Technically the group has rallied with the rest of the market since the beginning of September, but bears can take a defined risk shot at short entries as it tests four month highs.

Selling off again in heavier volume (+124% rate) Gildan Activewear (GIL) showed distribution in today's tape.

Building a topping pattern since early April, GIL is testing both support and its 200 DMA looking technically weak near the $27 whole number.

Long: UA

Short: GIL, HBI

Group Includes: COH, RL, VFC, PVH, UA, WRC, CRI, JNY, HBI, LIZ, TRLG, GIL, COLM, MFB, GIII
