💡Trade Ideas — $AAPL, $MU, $BAC, $NKE, $TRIP, $DE

March 26, 2017

Need some trading ideas to get the week started? We’ve got you covered! This is our weekly issue March 27 — March 31 where we go over macro economics, economic calendar, upcoming earnings and list a few trade ideas.


The US stock market showed some big selling last week. Many analysts are calling for a bigger correction but this week will be telling for trend direction.

Sectors in uptrend include Financial, Technology, and Utilities.

Favorite ETFs

$SPY — After a dip CCI is now showing as it did before the presidential election results. Support looks to have formed and this week should be telling.

$GLD — Gold was up last week until equities started on their dip. From a charting perspective volatility could be setting in.

$USO — Oil fell all last week on concern of inventory levels still greater than expected. Big support is at the $10 level so we’ll see if we get a support bounce this week.

$UNG — This natural gas ETF has quietly been uptrending since bitting support a month ago. Natural gas continues its upward valuation as oil falls.

Economic Calendar

Earnings Calendar

As the earnings season draws to a close for this quarter there aren’t many decent option volume trading targets.

$AAPL — Apple Inc.

Since the company’s ER beat late January the stock price has been on a tear. The uptrend has tapered some but an uptrend price channel continues.

Catalyst- Technical analysis

Trade- BUY $140.00 March 31, 2017 Calls

$MU — Micron Technology, Inc.

$MU had an ER beat on 3/23/17 and spiked. The trading volume looked similar to late December in 2016 where the stock price let off stream to fill the upward gap.

Catalyst- Post-ER

Trade- BUY $28.00 March 31, 2017 Puts

$BAC — Bank of America Corporation

$BAC is trading at $22.50 support after pulling back late last week. It would be very bearish should this support fail.

Catalyst- Technical support

Trade- BUY $23.00 March 31, 2017 Calls

$NKE — NIKE, Inc.

$NKE fell hard last week on large volume after giving a weak future outlook during its ER. However, it has been on a rally to close the downward gap since.

Catalyst- Post-ER

Trade- BUY $56.00 March 31, 2017 Calls

$TRIP — TripAdvisor Inc.

$TRIP has been on a downtrend the past few months. It has a 54 PE which is towards the top of competitor analysis. The company does have strong fundamentals and the $PCLN merger discussion and occurrence could bring life to the stock.

Catalyst- Merger discussions

Trade- BUY $43.00 March 31, 2017 Calls

$DE — Deere & Company

$DE has had a nice uptrend since the presidential election outcome. March has given way to a flat price channel and chart analysis is showing signs of sell.

Catalyst- Technical analysis

Trade- BUY $108.00 March 31, 2017 Puts
