Trade-Ideas LLC identified Cablevision Systems ( CVC) as a "water-logged and getting wetter" (weak stocks crossing below support with today's range greater than 200%) candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Cablevision Systems as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • CVC has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $63.9 million.
  • CVC has traded 6.1 million shares today.
  • CVC traded in a range 241.8% of the normal price range with a price range of $1.05.
  • CVC traded below its daily resistance level (quality: 24 days, meaning that the stock is crossing a resistance level set by the last 24 calendar days. The resistance price is defined by the Price - $0.01 at the time of the signal).

Stocks matching the 'Water-Logged and Getting Wetter' criteria are worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and volatility. Trade-Ideas targets these opportunities because the stock is exhibiting an unusual behavior while displaying negative price action. In this case, the stock crossed an important inflection point; namely, "support" while at the same time the range of the stock's movement in price is twice its normal size. This large range foreshadows a possible continuation as the stock moves lower.
