Zignals Trading Strategies That Work; The Individual Trading Idea

While trading strategies are one aspect of the equation, another is the trading idea; individual stocks on the move because of momentum, breakouts or reactions to positive news (e.g. FDA approval). I keep a regular track of stocks making moves past resistance on volume. How have some of these performed?

SIG was one of 18 breakouts from March 26th and at the time I had marked it "best of the bunch". The stock breakout followed the quaint concept of making a profit. The current Trading Idea is still in play with a target price of $35.99.

QLTY made a break on April 1st following a 'Buy' rating. It finished that day at $6.50 and has since pushed on to challenge $7.75. The measured move target of $9.45 is still there for the taking, although it is looking extended in the near term.

One of my Irish Trading Ideas performing well is Aryzta (YZA). Another buying opportunity looks ready to present once the current "bull flag" resolves. A stop can be placed on a loss of the "bull flag" low which will also protect the profits from the original Trading Idea.
