Stock Market Video - How to Narrow Down Watchlists (and Setups for the Week) - 10/23/11

Hi, traders - here's the video for the week ahead.   Going into Wednesday's and Friday's sessions this week, I had a ton of bullish setups in my scans.   Thursday didn't work out so well for those scans, but we saw a nice session on Friday and I once again saw a ton of potential setups in my scans this weekend.   Actually, I saw too many.   So what do you do when you have TOO many potential candidates?   This video will look at the process of narrowing down a watchlist and some ways to eliminate candidates.   Included in the video are the final setups I will be watching as the week commences.

Overall, this week was a difficult week to swing trade but longer-term it may have been an excellent one because we did get some much-needed consolidation.   Headline risk remains from the dealings in Europe and is the main reason I stayed in cash over this weekend, but if things can get worked out there, we may have a nice year-end rally on our hands, as hard as that may be to believe.

I hope you find the video helpful and informative.   As always, feel free to email me with questions or comments - I enjoy hearing from my readers.  If you like the videos, please take a moment to leave a review on Investimonials and feel free to retweet the links to your friends.  I would appreciate it.  You can also review my Twitter feed here.

There were so many possibilities that I had to eliminate a lot so perhaps they were on my list and I just passed. I know I saw SAVE but I think it has earnings.

I will keep discussing entries on Twitter as I can but work does not always allow me to tweet in real time.
