The Play Of The Day
11-3-99 08:55 EST
Good Morning Stock Fans!
Today's Play of The Day is: (NASDAQ:JCDA)
This recent IPO, put together a great trading range yesterday of $25.50- $37.18750. It pulled back to just over 27.00 a share yesterday as the NASDAQ gave way to late profit taking. It is "gapping up" this morning in pre-market to over $31.00 now after it closed on huge volume of over 10 million shares at $29.00 even.
I am going with this one today as a range play. It looks very much like it is going open up, and then drop back to about $29.1250-$29.50 and then go up and challenge that 37.18750 area it got to yesterday. Here are your Key Indicators on this one today.
Buy Area: $29.1250- $30.00 even
Sell Stop: $26.93750
TARGET: $34.93750- $37.50
Time Frame: Today
Type of trade: Daytrade

#2 BONUS PLAY: America Online (NYSE:AOL)
Well, Stock Fans! America Online (NYSE:AOL) has been on fire of late it went as high yesterday as $136.50 before a late in the session profit taking took place. America Online (NYSE:AOL) has created a nice trading chart of late. It has had a nice run and finally last week it broke through a "gap up " area created in July by Barons magazine that caused it to go up in July off a rare good article by them from $116.00-$126.00.
However (NYSE:AOL) everytime in the past it has made a run to go higher it has pulled back and tested gap up areas. The last "gap up" area took place on Oct 25, 1999 (last week ) The news that caused this was (NYSE:AOL) board of directors approving a split. It has yet to cover that gap up area that took it from $125.00-$129.00.
I am going go with history again today! I am looking for (NYSE:AOL) to open perhaps flat today. It then may go up a little bit maybe $134.1250-$134.50. It then should pull back on less volume and test that "gap up" uncovered area. So here are the Key Indicators and Options to make the most of what should have (NYSE:AOL) consulting its history book over the next few days or so. After that happens then I am looking for (NYSE:AOL) to be $141.00 ahead of our Turkey Dinners.
Buy Area: $126.1250-$126.50
Sell Stop: $124.6250
Time Frame: 7 to 20 days
Type of trade: swing trade
As a daytrade: not able to daytrade this one for more then 1 or 2 today.
