Swing Trading Opportunity: Fastly (September 2023)

Where do you save your documents and photos?

Gone are the days where I use external hard disks and thumb drives. 

I rely on the Cloud to store my data because it’s a lot more convenient. 

And cloud computing is what this week’s stock, Fastly, provides. 

Before diving in, I’d like to have a short review on Cisco (CSCO) that was shared last week. 

After an astounding rise in Aug while the S&P 500 was falling, the bulls in Cisco’s shares are taking a break. 

This was anticipated. 

Cisco’s share price should continue to fall for a short while more before exploding upwards in price. 

I’ll be watching its shares closely. 

Switching back, let’s analyze this week’s swing trading opportunity: Fastly (FSLY).

However, a surge in bullish momentum send its share price high, and it has been beating the S&P 500 since Aug 2023.

Key Price Levels

Support and resistance on the chart of Fastly

How can you find a sweet entry point?

You can do so by plotting the key price levels, which is also known as support and resistance zones.

Did you manage to spot this immediate support zone at ~$21?  

This price area is significant because its share price is likely to drop to that region before bouncing. If you buy its shares just after the bounce, you are increasing your odds of success.

Hence, I’m waiting for its share price to fall to ~$21 before considering to enter for a swing trade.
