3. New Setups I’m Watching This Week:

Amcor (AMCR) - Materials

  • Watching for price to stay above $10.80 while awaiting 20-day support

  • I’m wanting a small drop down on RSI, I don't want to buy high then sell high

  • I’d want to pick it up around $10.80 area and then ride it up to $11.50

  • Watch out for earnings on Tuesday, Aug 18

Duke Realty (DRE)

  • This is a Power Earnings Gap setup (PEG): I extensively covered PEG setups last Wed’s episode #35 if you want to go back and review to get a better understanding

  • Reported earnings on July 29 and gapped up +0.60% and then closed the day +4.6%, which is a strong close

  • Since then consolidated

  • Price is becoming more relevant on RSI

  • Waiting for solid 20-day support before making a move up
