I went short AAPL today. Overbought and lots of space between price and moving average.

Overbought conditions, distance from the 50 day moving average and a negative divergence in RSI made it a decent counter trend... Continue Reading →

The market and leading stocks are breaking out after a short consolidation period and overbought readings that are still extreme. Due to the extreme overbought readings, I'm taking a few "speculative" shorts. However, they are done with caution and small positions size.The idea behind these trades is to expect a small loss. If the trade... Continue Reading →
