Shorting NTRI

NTRI will be added as an Active Short Trade here following the recent breakdown of this very steep & very over-extended rising wedge pattern.  Note how the slow line on the MACD is close to crossing into the "red zone", which has typically defined major downtrends in the stock.  The sole profit target at this [...]

NTRI approaching first price target

For those in or just watching the NTRI short, I have now brought the short to a full position.  Since the last post, NTRI has given the "confirming" MACD sell signal (bearish MACD cross-over following the RSI drop back below the 70 level... see prior posts on this trade for details).  We also have one [...]
