Swing Trade Setup Worked out Well:
In my last couple of posts, I mentioned that I went long on the Market Vectors Vietnam index following Tuesday's flush down on the inflation numbers. This was a well calculated level for a bounce and it triggered a strong Shift-in-Psychology (SIP) Buy opportunity. As mentioned, I scaled into the long position on the way down as follows:
  • 500 Shares Long at 19.76
  • 500 Shares Long at 19.26
  • 500 Shares Long at 19.40
  • 1500 Shares Average Long at 19.48
I sold out of 1000 shares at 20.41, with 500 remaining in the trade. I will let the remaining 500 ride, with my stop loss just below 19.76.

As I said earlier, I remain bearish on Vietnam in the long term. This setup was good for a swing and thats all.
On a side-note, HPQ, which I highlighted as a potential long trade below $36 started to show some strength today. I did not enter this trade, however. Below is the daily chart with the 10-minute intraday chart inside.

Happy Trading
