Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NKTR) is acting well, and is included in the S&P 500 indexes now. It has been in a beautiful bull coil the last two weeks. On Tuesday, it jumped 2.19, or 2%, to 107.20, on 3.4 million shares. Volume is coming in, and if it breaks out, it’s going to be a 125-30-dollar stock.

Upland Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPLD), one of our swing trades, looks like it’s popping, up another 82 cents, or 2.84%, to 29.71, on 247,434 shares traded on Tuesday. But you can see that if it comes out of the consolidation pattern, it could run right to the 36-7 zone, which is my next target.

Stocks on the Short Side….

Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:AEIS) dropped 34 cents, to 69.13, on 255,703 shares traded on Tuesday. It might be breaking its 3-wave corrective flag to the declining topsline. If it rolls over here, it looks to me like it could be down in the mid 50’s. That’s the target on this one.

Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:PLAY) was down another 10 cents, to 43.07, on 798,917 shares traded on Tuesday, and looks like it’s cracking. Its wedge is going down targeting 39, and then the low 30’s.

On the long side, stocks included Baozun Inc. (NASDAQ:BZUN), CASI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:CASI), Citi Trends, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTRN), HealthEquity, Inc. (NASDAQ:HQY), Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NKTR), PTC Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:PTCT), SMART Global Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGH), SunPower Corporation (NASDAQ:SPWR), Square, Inc. (NYSE:SQ), Stoneridge, Inc. (NYSE:SRI), TAL International Group, Inc. (NYSE:TAL), Talend S.A. (NASDAQ:TLND), Upland Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPLD), and VelocityShares 3x Lng Crude Oil ETN New (NYSE:UWT).

On the short side, stocks included Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:AEIS), Argan, Inc. (NYSE:AGX), Albemarle Corporation (NYSE:ALB), DowDuPont Inc. (NYSE:DWDP), Edgewell Personal Care Company (NYSE:EPC), Nutrisystem, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTRI),, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK), Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:PBH), Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:PLAY), Sanderson Farms, Inc. (NASDAQ:SAFM), Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE:SMG), Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE:TAP), Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE:TPX), and TrueCar, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRUE).
