Your Friday Afternoon Trades -- Ahead Of The Close


How are the Fast Money traders gaming potential movers -- into Friday's close?

THE GOLD TRADE: As gold touches 2-month highs, should you be a buyer?

No, I’m not a buyer, says Dan Fitzpatrick of Instead I’d look at the DBA.


THE OIL TRADE: With oil still above $60, should you buy ahead of the summer season?

I’d take profits in front of $64, counsels Bill Strazzullo of Bell Curve, and then buy on a pullback.


THE CURRENCY TRADE: The dollar ETF dropped about 4% for the week; how should you play the move?

I see no reason for the dollar to move, counsels Zach Karabell of RiverTwice.


THE RETAIL TRADE:  Shares of Sears shot higher on Friday; should you buy on the strength?

I’d only be a buyer if the stock breaks above $63, says Brian Stutland of Stutland Equities. That’s been a key level of resistance.
