4 Top Stock Trades for Monday: FSLY, BA, JPM, C

Stock Market

Stocks churned higher for most of Friday’s session, setting the stage for the start of earnings season next week. With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades for Monday.

Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 1: Fastly (FSLY)

Fastly (NYSE:FSLY) stock has been absolutely incredible, rallying from $10.63 at the March low to more than $100 this week. 

On the way up, we outlined a couple of key levels, including $75 and $84. These are the 261.8% and the three-times range extensions from the prior range. I also flagged the 361.8% level and the $100 mark as a potential upside target. 

After briefly exceeding these marks, however, shares seem to be cooling off a bit.

Now we need to see where support comes into play. Start with the 10-day moving average near $88. Below that puts the 20-day moving average in play, followed by the extensions we highlighted in the chart at $84 and $75.

Above $100, though, and the $102.95 high is in play.

Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 2: Boeing (BA)

Boeing (NYSE:BA) made a nice reversal higher on Friday, as it continues to hold the $168 to $170 area as support. 

The problem is, however, that downtrend resistance (blue line) and the 20-day moving average continue to squeeze the stock lower. This has the look of a descending triangle, a bearish technical signal. 

That said, watch $168. Below this mark puts the 50-day moving average in play. If that fails, it could put $150 in play, which is the 23.6% retracement. 

For bulls to gain any sort of meaningful momentum, the stock must close over the 20-day moving average currently near $184. 

Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 3: JPMorgan (JPM)

JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) and other bank stocks are making a powerful move higher on Friday and ahead earnings next week. The company will report on Tuesday, along with Citigroup (NYSE:C). 

The 23.6% retracement held as solid support for the last few weeks. So with JPMorgan’s rally, the stock is reclaiming the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, as well as clearing downtrend resistance. 

Now bulls need to see if shares can clear the 38.2% retracement and reclaim $100. Above that puts $110 to $112 in play, along with the 200-day moving average.

Below uptrend support, though, and JPMorgan could see more downside. 

Top Stock Trades for Monday No. 4: Citigroup (C)

Like JPMorgan, Citigroup is prepping for earnings. 

The stock did a great job holding $50 support and is bouncing off the 50-day moving average. It’s also reclaiming downtrend resistance and the 20-day moving average. 

From here, I want to see shares clear the 50% retracement at $56.68, putting $60 to $62 in play. There it will find the 61.8% retracement and 200-day moving average. 

Below this month’s low at $49.03, however, and Citigroup could take a tumble. In that event, it put the 23.6% retracement in play at $43.47.
