The markets were undecided on Wednesday after a few earnings reports and the Fed’s FOMC announcement. However, the bulls spoke up loud and clear on Thursday, driving equity prices higher. With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades for Friday.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Ethereum (ETH-USD)
We had a really nice “ABC” correction in Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD), where bulls saw $2,800 hold as support.
The ensuing rebound sent shares higher in eight out of nine sessions, as Ethereum chopped and held above the 50-day moving average. With Thursday’s rally, Ethereum launched over the “B” leg high near $3,675.
That opened the door to the 78.6% retracement, which is currently acting as resistance. Should Ethereum push through this level, it opens the door to $4,000. Above that, and the all-time high is on the table near $4,400.
On the downside, however, a drop below $3,675 opens the door to the 50-day moving average, provided that the 10-day doesn’t buoy Ethereum.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Plug Power (PLUG)
Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG) caught a nice boost on Wednesday and held its gains on Thursday. From here, we’re in an interesting spot with the stock, though.
On the downside, I wouldn’t hate a dip down toward $30, along with the 10-day and 10-month moving averages. That will also fill the gap. However, a break below these levels will not look too hot and could put the 50-day moving average in play.
On the upside, though, a move above this week’s high (currently at $34) opens the door to the 200-day moving average and $36 level. Keep in mind the strong volume we saw from the last two days too.
Above $36 puts the $42 gap-fill mark on the table.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Walgreens (WBA)
Walgreens (NASDAQ:WBA) had some volatile post-earnings action on Thursday.
Shares broke below the September and October lows, and even cracked below $42, before snapping higher and rebounding with a vengeance. The move was enough to send WBA stock back up through all of these levels, along with the 50-day and 200-day moving averages.
That said, it’s struggling with the $51 area and remains below last month’s high just below $52.
A couple days of consolidation would do Walgreens some good, opening the door to a weekly-up and monthly-up rotation next week.
Over $52 puts $55.50 in play. On the downside, however, a move below $50 puts the 50-day moving average back on the table.
Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Netflix (NFLX)
Last but not least, we have Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). What a beast this name has been on the long side. We flagged this name on Sept. 30 looking for a breakout over $615 and a rally to the 161.8% extension at $647.53.
Look at the chart here and tell me how it could have gotten any better than this?
On the dip, we have a classic pullback to the 10-day moving average, followed by a daily-up rotation with Thursday’s action. That keeps a retest of the 161.8% extension and the $650 level on the table.
On the downside, a move below this week’s low near $622 really puts a dent in the bull case in the short term.
