Swing Trading Opportunity: CSX (July 2023)

To the moon! 

Traders and investors were cheering because the bulls have returned. 

The S&P 500 had risen by 2.5% after pulling back last week. 

In a smooth and rising market, it’s easy to profit from the market. However, we are in a volatile bull market, so your stock selection matters a lot more. 

I know that you’re eager to read about this week’s stock pick.

Before we dive right in, let’s review last week’s swing trading opportunity: Edwards Lifesciences (EW)

Using The Art of Explosive Profits (AEP) framework, you’d be in Edwards Lifesciences and making more than 3.5%!

Congrats if you’re in!

Now to this week’s swing trading opportunity: CSX.

This is the 1st filter to determine whether CSX is a stock worth your time and money.

How Explosive Is CSX (CSX)?

Explosive up moves on the chart of CSX

You’ve concluded that the shares of CSX are performing better than the S&P 500.

But outperformance isn’t the only consideration for a swing trade. 

You’ll want its shares to enjoy explosive up moves so that you make full use of your trading capital and time.  

To save you time, I’ve marked out all of its up moves in the past 8 months.

Can you see that each of its up moves measures at least 5% (excluding the one that’s forming)?

The largest up move measured is 10%, which is remarkable as CSX boasts of a market capitalization of $69b!

With a $69b market capitalization, this ranks CSX as the 211th most valuable company in the world. Not an easy feat, if you ask me!

CSX’s shares have proven to be explosive in nature, passing this filter with flying colors.
