Why Former NYSE Trader David Green Bought NVIDIA, Tesla, and Cassava Sciences On Tuesday

Veteran trader David Green was back live trading on Benzinga Tuesday morning, and the long-time trader made some moves.

Green pointed out the strength of NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) Tuesday morning. The stock opened slightly higher, at around $201 per share, before reversing and giving up gains. Once the stock dropped, Green looked at NVIDIA as a trade.

“NVIDIA looks like a buy right here,” Green said when the stock was around $197. After putting a buy order out, Green picked up 50 shares, and then quickly sold them when the stock rose to around $198.

Green also commented that he ‘hated’ trading NVIDIA, because the stock often times disobeys the technical analysis and pivot points that Green trades off of.

Green, an NYSE veteran, often trades stocks on both sides, both long and short. He noted that NVIDIA could be setting up for a short trade if the stock goes back up to the $200 level.

Stocks Discussed On The Show

Green also discussed Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB), saying that he liked the $348 level for a spot to make a quick day trade. Green put a buy order out for $348.40, and the stock ended up bouncing to the $350 level.

Cassava Sciences Inc (NASDAQ: SAVA) opened up, around $87 a share. The stock quickly dropped down to the $84 level. Green put out an order to purchase shares of SAVA when the stock was sliding down. The stock ended up reversing and going back up before Green’s orders were filled.

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) opened up, near $719 a share. After the open, the stock dropped down near the $705 level. Green put an order out to “buy the dip,” if Tesla dropped below $700.

“Tesla we buy at $696,” Green said. “Let’s put that order out there.”

Green mostly executes quick day trades, both on the long and short side. When a stock hits one of his pivot points he initiates a buy order with a tight stop loss.
