Trade Ideas: PLT, TWB, PPL. SSD, CVD, PEC, UTI

It was a disappointing day for the markets. The semiconductors had promised much after last weeks push above 510, but the last 2 days of selling have more-or-less confirmed the bull trap with pressure now on double bottom support (with the 50-day MA not far below).
