Trade of the Week for September

Diana Shipping (DSX(Triggered) Diana Shipping, Inc (DSX) is shaping up nicely on the daily chart with perfect timing going into the long weekend. This one may just be ready to play catch up to the other shipping companies that have shown tremendous strength as of late. 

Pixelworks, Inc. (PXLW(Not Triggered) We want to focus on strong charts that have had a recent pullback to levels that make sense. Pixelworks, Inc. (PXLW) has pulled back to the 20-day moving average and may be looking to build a higher-low from the volume and price breakout in mid-August. We will use Thursday’s high as our trigger and hope the general market indexes behave.

Lordstown Motors Corp. (RIDE(Not Triggered) Lordstown Motors Corp. has a nice bottoming pattern that is showing us potential for a move higher this week. The rounded bottom along with reclaiming all the key moving averages is giving RIDE a nice look on the daily chart for a Trade of the Week consideration.

Ashford Hospitality (AHT(Triggered) Ashford Hospitality (AHT) has finally moved up and above the declining 50-day simple moving average. Many stock charts have been held down by this particular moving average. But the ones that do make it up and through seem to have more follow thru much like the chart for RIDE last week.
