Oversold bottom bouncers are some of my favorite stocks to swing. When the spin and seal is solid, the technical pivot and squeeze provides lucrative trades quickly. The recent pullback in the S&P 500 along with a number of earnings disappointments has landed a number of small caps in oversold territory. Generally what I’m looking for a 5 – 10% return making on a 1-4 day hold and before initiating trades I make sure the market is trending higher and the stock itself opens above the previous day’s close or goes high of day throughout the candle over candle session. With the market looking to open bullish there’s likely to be some solid winners here.
