KLAC Stopped Out for 1.8% Loss

KLAC exceed the suggested stop of a move above 69.20 (69.21 stop) for a minor loss of 1.8%. KLAC daily Sept 1st   I set the stops tight on this trade for two reasons: 1) Any move back above 69.20 would have not been consistent with the typical move following the breakdown of a bull flag pattern, which was one of the main reasons for the short entry.

KLAC and TXN look ripe to short here, with the appropriate stops.  PROJ will need a break of that uptrend line to trigger a short, which one could then target T1 for a quick trade,or hold out for T2, depending on the price and volume action at the time (TBD).

KLAC update

i jumped the gun on this one shorting a miniscule, very brief breakdown of the wedge without waiting for confirmation but i'm still in the trade and still believe this one goes lower before going much higher.  will only add on a confirmed break of the trendline, such as an impulsive move down below it or a solid close below.  i added some targets to this chart.
