Short Trades Category Updated

The following short trades have either exceeded their suggested stop(s) or no longer look compelling from an risk-reward perspective and will be moved to the Completed Trades category: ADBE: Has traded slightly above the suggested stop of 77.09 over the last several trading sessions, resulting in a relatively small loss of 2.8%. As the R/R on this trade was way above average (over 10:1 R/R to the final target), in hindsight, I should have listed multiple stops, not just the sole suggested stop 77.09 which was based on the distance to the first profit target at 69.85. With that being said, [...]

NVO Short Entry & Trade Setup

NVO daily Jan 6th NVO (Novo Nordisk, A/S) offers an objective short entry on this break below the 42ish support level, which also follows the recent breakdown & successful backtest of this large bearish rising wedge pattern (which was defined by the primary uptrend line generated off of the Oct 2011 lows).

NVO short set-up (daily chart)

After recently breaking down and successfully re-testing a multi-year uptrend channel, confirming a new primary downtrend, NVO has now pushed back up to a key resistance area while forming a bearish rising wedge pattern (with negative divergence on the MACD and CMF confirming...not shown on this chart).  Odds favor a downside resolution of this pattern unless NVO can make a sustained break out of the wedge pattern and above the marked resistance zone. Aggressive traders could short here with a stop on a solid close above the 120.60 resistance level while conservative traders could wait for a confirmed breakdown of the [...]
