4 Top Stock Trades for Friday: SPY, Ethereum, NIO, AMD

Top stock trades - 4 Top Stock Trades for Friday: SPY, Ethereum, NIO, AMD

Wednesday was a really nice rally for the bulls on strong upside volume. But they found a way to jam this one down and really pull the rug out from under the bulls’ feet. At market close, the New York Stock Exchange experienced a 95% down day on Thursdsay. A second 90% downside day would hurt, but could get us closer to an intermediate-term low. With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades, starting with the S&P 500.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: S&P 500 (SPY)

On Wednesday, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY) closed above the 10-day moving average for the first time since April 20. That didn’t last long though with Thursday’s plunge.

Now we’re sitting on last week’s low and prior 2022 support near $410. If it fails, it opens the door to this week’s low near $405, followed by the gap-fill level near $400.

On the upside, I’d really like to hold this area as support and reclaim the 10-day. If it can do that, the SPY could technically put last week’s high and this week’s high in play near $429.50. Above that and the rally can continue.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Ethereum (ETH-USD)

Cryptocurrency traded well on Wednesday, but like stocks, they got hit hard on Thursday. I laid out Bitcoin (BTC-USD) earlier in the day, so let’s take a look at Ethereum (ETH-USD).

Ethereum is breaking below channel support, as it clings to the April low near $2,720. I know there are some uptrend lines and such to consider, but a break of channel support and the April low would be too overwhelming to me, particularly if Ethereum closes below the latter.

That would have me watching for a test of the $2,500 level, potentially followed by the 2022 low down near $2,150.

On the upside, Ethereum could run back to $3,000 and the 50-day if it can reclaim channel support. Above the 50-day really opens things up, putting the 200-day and $3,500 in play.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Nio (NIO)

Nio (NYSE:NIO) got smoked on the day, down more than 15% and filling the gap from March at $15.35. If it can’t reclaim this level, then investors need to understand that more downside could be in play.

Specifically, I believe the 2022 low would be vulnerable, down near $13. If that level breaks and isn’t reclaimed, then another gap-fill could be in play, with this one all the way down at $9.40.

On the upside, watch for Nio to reclaim $15.35. Above that puts the 10-day in play, followed by the 50-day.

Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)

Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) ripped higher on earnings yesterday but stalled right at the prior support zone in the $99 to $100 zone. Reclaiming this level would be huge for the bulls.

While AMD stock faded a bit on Thursday, the plus side is that it’s holding the 10-day and 21-day moving averages.

If it can continue to do so, $100 remains on the table. Above $100 would technically put the 50-day in play, but I would have my eyes on the $112 to $117 area, where we find several larger timeframe measures like the 50-week and 200-day moving averages and the weekly VWAP measure.

If AMD stock breaks the 10-day and 21-day and can’t reclaim them, then the $85 area is back on the table.
