Major averages gapped higher yesterday after Trump's speech and continued to move higher throughout the day on lower but above average volume. Financials led the charge as the XLF gapped to higher highs after several Fed heads expressed hawkish views in favor of a rate hike in March. The lower volume was unsurprising after Tuesday's spiking volume as nervous institutions sold ahead of Trump's speech.
Focus List Update
GKOS had a pocket pivot off its 20-dema. GKOS is gapping up this morning after earnings and should be watched for a possible actionable buyable gap-up move.
VEEV had a wild day yesterday as it gapped down at the open but then shook out sellers and reversed back to the upside on a pocket pivot move. It gapped lower after reporting earnings then after further selling near the open, rallied the rest of the day to finish in the upper part of its trading range. It can be psychologically tough to buy back after having sold it earlier in the day, but some stocks have acted in this manner to well outperform the markets after such price/volume action. That said, VEEV was quite volatile in yesterday's trade so it may exceed your risk tolerance levels.
ZION gapped higher just as many other financials did after Trump's speech.
