4 Top Stock Trades for Thursday: Dogecoin, CCL, TWTR, ROKU


Today felt like a slow middle-of-summer trading session, with the indices slowly chopping around and the S&P 500 near all-time highs. Let’s look at a few top stock traders for Thursday.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Dogecoin (DOGE-USD)

Cryptocurrencies have been all over the map and Dogecoin (CCC:DOGE-USD) is no exception to this observation. While Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD) and others firmed up Tuesday amid what looked to be a potential breakdown, the group isn’t out of the woods quite yet. 

When I look at the daily chart for Dogecoin, I see the stock below its short-term moving averages. I also see a stock that’s failing to reclaim a prior support zone and is being pressured lower by its 10-day moving average. 

Should Dogecoin reclaim both measures, see how it handles the 30-cent level, should it get there. 

On the downside, I’d love to see the crypto hold its 21-week moving average. If it doesn’t and Dogecoin falls back below 20 cents, we could be looking at a retest of the lows and a dip to the 200-day moving average. 

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Carnival Cruise (CCL)

A popular reopening stock, Carnival Cruise (NYSE:CCL) has been volatile but methodical. Notice the way it trades between its key retracements, while respecting prior support and resistance zones.

Earlier this month, Carnival pushed through the 50% retracement, but couldn’t clear the $31.50 level. Now holding steady along the 50-day moving average, we’re waiting for a deeper pullback or confirmation via a rotation higher.

If it’s the former, look for a dip to the 21-week moving average. That should buoy the stock, but if it doesn’t, the 50% retracement could be retested.

If it’s the latter, aggressive bulls at least need a close above the 10-day moving average. More conservative bulls will want a close above the 50% retracement, putting the $31.50 level in play. Above that could unlock the 61.8% retracement.

And oh yeah, CCL reports earnings on Thursday.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Twitter (TWTR)

Coming into Wednesday, it was a shaky look for Twitter (NYSE:TWTR). Today, the stock looks better. 

Coming into the session, we were up against a gap-fill near $64 and downtrend resistance (blue line). The stock was also running into its 21-week moving average. 

All of these levels could have combined to act as resistance. Instead, Twitter pushed through and it’s impressive. Now pushing higher, I want to see if the stock can climb to the 61.8% retracement at $68.70. Above that puts $70-plus in play. 

On the downside, look to see that the stock holds above $64 and the 21-week moving average until the 10-day moving averages catches up. 

Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Roku (ROKU)

Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) has been on fire, there’s no other way to put it. The stock has marched higher for five straight sessions, climbing more than 26% in that span. One could argue that it didn’t deserve to fall that much in the first place, but what’s done is done. 

From here, the navigation gets a little tricky. After such a run, it’s hard to be long Roku unless it was bought from a much lower price. If it does continue higher, I have the $434 level on watch for a potential gap-fill. 

If we do get a dip, see how the $395 to $400 area does as support. Below puts the 10-day moving average in play. A correction of anything in between this range — the 10-day to $400 — would be incredibly healthy and help setup a move back above $450.
