FDX Price Target Hit for 9% Gain- The Canary Looks Sick

FDX (Fedex Corp) hit the first & sole official price target for a quick 9% gain. FDX was added as an Active Short Trade on Nov 30th following the breakdown below dual uptrend lines. The immediately fell sharply, hitting the T1 level (145.27) on Friday and has now clearly taken out that level with the stock trading down over 12% from entry.

Shorting FDX

With FDX (Fedex Corp) trading down nearly 3% today, I'm guessing the initial results from Cyber Monday are less than expected. FDX will be added as an Active Short Trade here with the first & final target of T1 at 145.27. Additional targets (T2 & T3) may be extended to this trade should the broad market confirm. The break below both of these uptrend lines (wedges) on the daily chart, along with the bearish technical outlook on the weekly chart, is the primary reasoning for establishing a short position in FDX at this time. Suggested stop over 167.50. [...]

FDX & IYT updates

FDX has moved below the previously highlighted support level which has drawn prices on IYT below the symmetrical triangle/horizontal wedge-type pattern.  as today is OpEx, i'm not reading too much into these breakdowns yet although i do believe that they warrant monitoring next week.  keep in mind that although i do expect both FDX & IYT to continue to move lower, they are not official trade ideas.  i am merely following FDX right now because it is widely considered a key economic indicator.  for those interested in shorting either, feel free to contact me & i will be glad to email [...]

FDX at key support

this looks like an important level for an important stock to hold.  i'm not adding this as a trade idea at this time but something to keep an eye on as a solid breakdown below this support level would most likely continue to drag the transportation sector lower, reaffirming the current dow theory non-confirmation mentioned in the previous post. if FDX bounces, keep an eye on that downtrend line above.  that resistance line along with the support line that FDX sits on appears to be a bearish descending triangle pattern.
