BTU Heats Up

April 30, 2012

Everyone knows that the coal sector has been extremely weak as of late. There is one leading coal stock that is catching a bid higher today and it is Peabody Energy Corp (NYSE:BTU). Today, BTU stock is trading higher by $1.01 to $31.21 a share. The stock will have intra-day resistance around the $31.60 area. The daily chart could have some more upside in the near term, however, the stock remains well below the important 200 day moving average which puts the stock in a weak technical position.

Some other leading coal stocks that are trading higher today include Alpha Natural Resources, Inc. (NYSE:ANR), Arch Coal Inc (NYSE:ACI), and James River Coal Company (NASDAQ:JRCC). Please note that the entire coal sector still remains weak on the daily charts.

Alert: Key Stock Levels On Apple Inc.

April 30, 2012
The price action on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues to be poor. The weeks prior to earnings, Apple took a beating. After a one day mega pop on solid quarterly earnings, it is taking a beating again. Today, the iEverything company is trading at $588.59, -14.41 (-2.39%).

The weakness in price action definitely speaks volumes for a continued pull back in the stock. After a monster one day rally, the Apple cannot catch a bid and has headed straight down. The obvious reasons for this selling is continued distribution by institutions into the hyped up retail investor and mutual fund.

The short term support levels on Apple are shown below. These are meant for day trading scalps and should not be construed as swing trade buy levels.

Home-builders Stocks Hit The Roof

April 30, 2012

Most of the leading home-builder stocks are now trading into overbought territory. When a stock or sector becomes overbought it will become susceptible to near term pullbacks. Today, most of the leading home-builder stocks are coming under early selling pressure. Toll Brothers Inc (NYSE:TOL) is considered to be the leading stock in the sector. This stock has surged sharply higher since April 10, 2012 when the stock traded around $21.78 a share. Today. TOL stock is declining lower by 0.43 cents to $25.13 a share. This stock is trading above all of the major daily chart moving averages which puts the stock in a strong technical position. The problem with the stock at this time is that it is overbought and will likely need to consolidate or pullback before moving higher. Short term traders can watch for intra-day support around the $25.00, and $24.65 levels.

Some other leading home-builder stocks that are selling off today include Lennar Corp (NYSE:LEN), D.R. Horton Inc (NYSE:DHI), and K.B. Home (NYSE:KBH). All of these stocks have similar patterns to TOL, traders should expect near term pullbacks in all of these stocks before another attempt to move higher.
