Here is your Bonus Idea with links to the full Top Ten:
Priceline, Ticker: $PCLN
Priceline, $PCLN, broke above the descending wedge after reporting earnings and has been using the top of the wedge as support since. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is bullish but falling and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator (MACD) is positive but fading towards a cross. Now at the 50 day Simple Moving Average (SMA) and printing back to back doji there is a trade opportunity. Resistance higher is found at 650 and fills a gap at 672.76, with resistance higher at 693. Support lower is found at 612 and a gap to 586.84 followed by 555. Use the reaction to the wedge and 50 SMA as the trade trigger.
Trade 1. Buy the stock on a move over 625 with a $12 trailing stop.
Trade 2. Buy the December 625 Calls (offered at $16.50 late Friday) on the same trigger.
Trade 3: Buy the November 625/640 Call Spreads ($3.40) on a move over 622.

After reviewing over 1,000 charts, I have found some good setups for the week. These were selected and should be viewed in the context of the broad Market Macro picture reviewed Saturday which, heading into the shortened Thanksgiving shows signs of a bottom, but not any reason to buy yet. Gold looks lower within the neutral long term channel while Crude Oil is biased higher in the consolidation. The US Dollar Index looks to continue higher while US Treasuries may be ready for a pullback in the uptrend. The Shanghai Composite and Emerging Markets are biased to the downside. Volatility looks to remain low with an upward bias keeping the bias lower for the equity index ETF’s SPY, IWM and QQQ, despite the potential reversal candles on their charts. Use this information as you prepare for the coming week and trade’m well.
