UPS Head & Shoulders Pattern Breakdown

UPS (United Parcel Service) was pointed out as a potential short a few weeks ago when the FDX short trade hit its price target. UPS has clearly broken down below support today & will likely see one or both of these support levels (88.60 & 81.90) in the coming weeks/months. While one could certainly establish a partial or full short position here, my preference will be to wait for a possible backtest of the neckline before shorting UPS. If that does occur, UPS will likely be added as an official short trade idea but for now, I just wanted [...]

USO (oil) and the transports

here are those updated charts on IYT (transports etf) as well as UPS and FDX, it's 2nd and 3rd top-weighted holdings (last chart first, today's updated charts 2nd on each symbol).  as per the last post on these 3, all three have hit their first key support areas (FDX still finding support at the bottom of it's uptrend channel).  although these stocks can break either way here, and although with the un-relenting momentum of the broad markets, i am going to take the more difficult call of saying these stocks will likely break down from these support areas soon, before a [...]

earlier today, i mentioned how several key sectors have already broken down from bearish patterns while the broad market pushes onto new highs (another sign that the uptrend may be in jeopardy).  i posted all three of these charts a few weeks back and a couple of them had fake-downs (false break-downs that quickly moved back above the uptrend line).  however, as you can see, both the IYT and UPS have clearly broken below their patterns/up-trend lines while FDX is close, but has not yet broken down.  one to watch though.  targets marked on all charts.
