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 [...]

MU Short Trade Setup + Video

MU will trigger a short entry on a break below this bearish rising wedge pattern. With all broad market trend indicators currently bullish, more conventional traders may decide to wait for a solid close below the pattern before establishing a position while more aggressive traders might opt to initiate a full or partial position on any intraday break of the pattern while bringing the trade to a full position once/if MU prints a solid daily or weekly close below the pattern. I've added a support level (S1) around the 22.20 area where an initial reaction is likely although I would expect [...]

MU Active Short Trade Update

MU was recently posted as an objective short entry at top of wedge (15.26) on Sept 6th.  Prices went on to overshoot the wedge but divergences persist.  It is not uncommon to see prices with a wedge pattern, bullish or bearish, to overshoot the wedge just before reversing and breaking down in the expected direction of the pattern.  However, we've also seen an unusually large number of textbook short patterns breakdown recently only to have prices move sharply high back within the pattern, i.e.- false breakdowns or bear-traps.  Therefore, a suggested stop on a move or close above the Sept 12th [...]

MU Short Add-on or New Entry

I'll be posting the charts of most of the short trade ideas posted on Tuesday, many of which are still offering objective entries or add-ons.  As such, the email notifications on some of those updates will be suppressed in order to reduce inbox clutter.  A notification will be sent out later today listing all of the trade ideas that were updated. MU offers an objective short at the top of this bearish rising wedge pattern for aggressive traders and/or on a breakdown below the pattern for more conventional traders.
