Short Trade Ideas Updated

The following trade ideas have been removed from the Active Short Trades categories as they have either exceeded their previous suggested stops (or any reasonable stop, if none suggested) or the stock simply no longer looks to offer an attractive R/R at this time. Some of these trades may have already hit one or more profit targets while others did not. Most trade ideas on RSOTC are immediately removed from the Active Trades category upon reaching the final profit [...]

MIC Short Update, Objective Entry

MIC was recently shorted on a break below this multi-year uptrend line.  The stock closed less than 1 point above that original entry level today after recently backtesting the trendline from below and still looks to offer an objective entry or add-on around current levels.  A suggested stop would be on any solid close above the recent highs put in back in early May.  For those currently in the trade, please note that the price targets have been updated since the previous post.  Updated daily chart:

Shorting MIC

MIC will be added as a new short setup and active trade here at 54.92 as it is breaking down below this nearly 2 year uptrend.  Typically when the technicals on the broad market are poised for a potentially sharp move, as the most likely are right now, my price alerts on setups that I am tracking will start going off like popcorn. Therefore, as many of these setups that have not been previously posted do trigger trade entries, I will do my best to get a chart mocked up and posted asap but will have to follow up with the [...]
