Today’s Trades: CAL and USO

I re-entered a 500 share short position in CAL at $41.60. This is an aggressive play, as the stock has not yet broke the forming head and shoulders pattern.

I also bought 500 shares of USO at $46.80. My target is $50, which is just under the 50 day moving average. The MACD and RSI look good, although I am a little concerned about the lack of volume on this upswing, in relation to the volume on the downturn. My gut is telling me to ignore the volume trend becausethe increased volume on the downswing is a sign of capitulation (note that volume during the “meat” of the move was actually quite low), but only time will tell.
