Here’s what one trader on StockTwits recently had to say in regards to JNJ:


    JNJ- has a potential cup and handle set up. Could possibly see 150s again in mid term if it doesn’t fall below 145s.

    MSFT – interesting chart formation with a downside at 210, 216 level. However, the xbox is coming out soon and it seems to show a nice flag formation. Consolidation above 220 I can see a push to 230 and even 240s mid term. Must be above 220.

    NFLX – nice set up and above 550 consolidation can see this jumping to 560 today or more and potentially filling a bullish gap into 580-600 top level resistance. Very risky as earnings is coming but these are a high risk reward play. Stop loss would be low 530s.

    NVDA – still a good spread play here as it held support around 555 many times. Look to see this blast pass 580 and 600 soon.
