Valentine’s Day Trading Intraday Up and Down Trending Stocks

Feb 14, 2014: 2:15 PM CST

Continuing our “Intraday Trend Trading” stock scans according to an algorithm I run mid-day, let’s take a look not just at the strong intraday uptrending stocks, but also the four “worst” intraday downtrending stocks.

Here’s the strong  uptrenders on yet another uptrending session:

Our “Top Four Intraday Trenders include WellPoint (WLP), Travelers Insurance (TRV), 3M Company (MMM), and Aetna (AET).

Again, pro-trend traders will look to play retracement or pro-trend strategies for a possible continuation of the one-sided bullish Trend Day in motion.

Alternately, aggressive/experienced traders may seek to play any intraday reversal that may develop on a trigger-break under the rising 20 then perhaps 50 EMA (5-min).

Thanks to your feedback (I’ve received supportive emails), some of the readers requested that I downtrending intraday stocks into the scan.

It’s a great idea and I wanted to incorporate that feedback into the daily scans.

Here are four of the strongest intraday downtrends  today (weakest intraday stocks):

Our four “Relative Strength Laggards” or strong downtrending stocks include Verizon Communications (VZ), Precision Castparts (PCP), Gilead Sciences (GILD), and Agilent Tech (A).

It would appear that the downtrending stocks – in the context of another strong bullish intraday trend in the US Equity Indexes – could be catalysts for reversal traders.

Nevertheless, intraday trends can continue beyond where we think they can, so approach these names and opportunities objectively (I prefer to monitor price relative to the 20 and 50 EMAs on the 5-min chart).
