The Weak Today column ranks stocks based on the price change relative to the stock’s opening price. These stocks tend to have weak opening drives and continuation moves. The idea here is to find opportunity in the weakest stocks in the market. When looking through the column, we always take note at how In Play the stock is to gauge how weak it can really be (Bright Red to Dark Blue).

Notice today most of the Weak Today stocks are not highly In Play.

Another method that can be used is to actually look for fade trades in the stocks that made it to the list, however are not In Play. This gives us an edge if we are looking to fade down moves in the market. Rather than fade a stock that likely has institutional buyers behind it, we look to fade stocks that are moving lower on lighter volume/order flow.

Top 10 Weak Today: $GLBC $BA $TWI $RIMM $BLK $SWK $PVH $HRS $PRU $STT

However, they are not guaranteed as to accuracy or completeness and are subject to change without any notice. Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Since, also, the trades have not actually been executed; the results may have been under or over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors such as liquidity, slippage and commissions. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any portfolio will, or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. All investments and trades carry risks.
