HPQ Short Trade Indicated to Gap Below First Target

HPQ is currently indicated to gap below the first target (T1 at 24.16) as the stock is trading down sharply in the pre-market session following their quarterly earning release and outlook.  As the first target, which is/was also support, has been bypassed so far with the stock currently trading at 23.35 as I type, the [...]

HPQ Short Entry

HPQ currently offers an objective short entry on the breakdown below this rising wedge pattern.  A reaction at the 25.50 support level is likely but should be fleeting.  T1 (24.16) is currently my preferred target at this time although that may change soon depending how the market trades over the next few sessions.

HPQ update

HPQ is trading just slightly above the suggest stop area so if you took the trade and were stopped out, best to let it go.  The stock is still likely to reverse soon and if it breaks below this support level on the 1 minute chart, it will most likely continue down to backtest the [...]

shorting HPQ

HPQ looks like an objective short here around 19.00 as it has made an very over-extending run, gapping today right into a solid resistance level marked by several previous gaps.  Trades like this should be considered aggressive as my style (which most traders deem impossible) often consists of catching tops and bottoms.  For example, my [...]
