Member @ruben made a request for the charts of NFLX, BA & GIS within the trading room. As each of these look like potential trading opportunities (the former 2 as shorts & the latter as a long trade), I figured that I would post the charts here on the front page for any members that might be interested in any of these stocks. As I have been finding it increasingly difficult to identify attractive long-side trade ideas, particular with individuals stocks, I'll start with GIS (General Mills Inc). GIS may likely continue down to around the 54.30ish support level before bottoming, [...]

The following trades; GRA, HSNI, GIS, & ABG, as well as my thoughts on the market are discussed below: Question: I must ask if it's wise to hold the shorts GRA, HSNI, GIS and ABG given the expected bounce off S&P support. I've read projections that the S&P could go as high as 1830 on this rebound. I realize each stock is a different situation so generic answer may not [...]
GIS daily Jan 29th GIS (General Mills Inc) will offer an objective short entry on any move below today's LOD of 48.06 with prices breaking down from this Head & Shouders topping pattern. T2 at 43.22 is my preferred & final swing target at this time. Although the stock is currently trading slightly below the neckline, I prefer to see one more thrust below today's previous lows before establishing a short position to help minimize the chances of shorting into a fake-out, or false break-out of the pattern. With GIS trading at 48.20 as I type, that would only [...]
