It was a mixed day in the market and at this rate, the bulls will take anything that isn’t a bludgeoning. Tech helped lead the way higher, as did bonds. With all of this in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades now.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Tesla (TSLA)

Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock broke the April low on Monday and despite Tuesday’s rally, this level acted as resistance on the day. That said, Tesla is holding the 21-month moving average as support.

We’re in a tight two-day range and that can be said for a lot of stocks right now. If the stock can go daily-up over Tuesday’s high and reclaim the April high in the process, we could be looking at a quick move back to the $870 area. Above that gets us $900 and the 200-day.

On the downside, keep a close watch on this week’s low. A break of this level and a failure to reclaim it could open the door down to the March low near $756, then this year’s low at $700.

Keep in mind that Tesla is a potential market-mover — and it can definitely move the Ark Innovation Fund (NYSEARCA:ARKK).

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Palo Alto Networks (PANW)

You may remember Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ:PANW) from a few weeks ago, where I explained that it was breaking support but I was hesitant to be a seller in this name given its relative strength.

Specifically, I said: “If this continues lower though, $550 is not out of the question. A real hammering puts $500 in play (and would have me wishing I didn’t call PANW a short). Aggressive shorts can use $570 as their stop-loss.”

Well, it’s true — I regret it.

Anyone who did sell this name made out well as it dropped all the way into the $450s. From here, it just undercut the January low and is reversing nicely.

If PANW stock can reclaim the 50-week moving average, it can fill the gap at $500. Above that could open the door to the 10-week and 21-week moving averages up near $550.

However, should the stock continue lower and take out the recent lows, the $400 breakout area could be on the table.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: SoFi Technologies (SOFI)

This was a weird one, with SoFi Technologies (NASDAQ:SOFI) sinking earlier in the day, then getting halted just after 11:15 after accidentally releasing its earnings in the middle of the day.

The stock is rallying on the results, though, after hitting new all-time lows earlier in the day.

On the upside, I want to see how SoFi handles $6. Assuming it can get there, this was a prior support area until today. Above that puts the May high in play near $7.15. That’s followed by $7.73.

On the downside, though, the main levels to watch are $5 and Tuesday’s low. A break of the former puts the latter in play and below the latter puts SoFi stock in no man’s land.

Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: AbbVie (ABBV)

AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) was on my go-to list for most of this year because of its relative strength. After stabilizing following a tough pullback, this one is back in play. However, we have to wait for the setup.

After an inside week and following earnings, an inside-and-up weekly rotation over $153.50 is in the cards. It tried today but couldn’t hold. If it can do it again and clear the 10-week moving average, $160 to $162 could be in the cards as a trim spot.
