Active Short Trade update- COL Removed

As there are a substantial number of trade ideas listed in Active Short Trades category, I plan to go through the charts in detail this week and update as many of the trades as possible.  At quick glance, I see two trades that have exceeded their previously suggested stop parameters.  COL moved well above the suggested stop of 60.30 and as such, will be considered stopped out and moved to the Completed trades category.  However, as a case was made for a long-term short based on the weekly charts, any longer-term term traders still in this one might note that COL [...]
