It was another strong day for the bulls on Monday, with the indices bouncing after a strong Friday. Now the question is, how much of the gains can they keep through the rest of the week? With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades as we turn the calendar to February.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Spotify (SPOT)
Shares of Spotify (NYSE:SPOT) stock erupted higher on Monday, climbing more than 13% on the day. The move comes amid controversy and as the stock was hitting its lowest level since May 2020.
Now rallying, Spotify stock is running into last week’s high at $194.23 and the declining 10-day moving average.
If it can push through this area, $200 is next, followed by the declining 21-day moving average.
On the downside, though, look for resistance near the current area. If it comes and the stock loses the most recent four-hour low near $190.50, we could see more downside in the short term.
However, bulls do not want to see this stock lose $180.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Exxon Mobil (XOM)
Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) is scheduled to report earnings tomorrow before the open, and I want to take a look at this one because we’ve been all over the energy trade lately.
Exxon is hugging last week’s high and is in a clear uptrend.
If we push higher on earnings, let’s see if the stock can tag the 261.8% extension up at $80.
On the downside, there are two clear levels to watch. The first is $74, a level that has seen plenty of interest as both support and resistance. It’s also where the 10-day moving average comes into play.
If that area isn’t support, then let’s keep an eye on last week’s low near $71.40, as well as the 21-day moving average. Either zone could be a buy-the-dip opportunity on a bearish post-earnings reaction, so keep an eye on it.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: United Parcel Service (UPS)
Like Exxon, United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS) will report earnings before the open on Tuesday. However, unlike Exxon, the stock has not been in a clear uptrend.
Currently holding the 50-week, UPS stock has clear resistance just overhead. That comes in the form of the 21-week moving average and the weekly VWAP measure. If it can clear these marks, as well as the 10-week, then it could put $220 resistance in play.
This level has been consistent resistance since the second quarter of 2021.
On the downside, though, a break of last week’s low leaves UPS stock vulnerable to the $175 to $180 zone, as well as the 21-month moving average.
Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Boeing (BA)
Last but not least is Boeing (NYSE:BA), which continues to trend lower. This one has been trending in the news on Monday, but despite the nice pop in the stock price, the chart still remains a mess.
Shares continue to make a series of lower lows and remain trapped below all of the daily moving averages. It’s struggling with $200 and while it could push up to the $205 to $210 zone, it will likely have a hard time clearing it.
If it can, the 200-day moving average is next, followed by $230-ish.
On the downside, however, the $185 to $190 area is desperately trying to hold as support. Should it fail, there is a big gap-fill down near $158.50. However, what bulls really need to see a series of higher lows start to form.
