Pullback After New Highs Are Great Swing Trading Opportunities

One of the secrets of the stock market is this:

"A gradual pullback after a stock make new highs is a great swing trading opportunity."

If you do not understand what that means, you will soon know about it. A stock that is in an uptrend will tend to move upwards. But there are time that they will correct. Sometimes because it is overbought and at other times the general market condition causes it to fall. However, a good stock in an uptrend will find support somewhere and then reverse and move higher.

Lets take a look at some stocks below. Please note that all of them made a new high recently (as of this writing) and had a small correction or pullback. This set up a great swing trading opportunity for traders who like to trade pullbacks.

BPMC made a new high but it couldn't shoot higher immediately. The stock corrected to support area which is the consolidation it made recently. When pullback traders saw it, they bought the stock for a nice swing trade.

EDU also made a new high recently. It then corrected to support area and formed a bottoming tail and doji which told traders the downward momentum was slowing down. Observant traders could have bought the stock for a quick swing trade.

The above is a 60 min chart of EDU. Once a trader identifies a setup on the daily chart, he or she will zoom in to the lower time frames to determine a suitable entry point. That is why it is always important to do multiple time frames analysis.
