MA: Will it fill this gap?

Discussion in 'Stocks' started by matgallis, Jul 3, 2008.

  1. I've been short MA since $277, decent return in a short timeframe. I've been expecting it to get close to this gap and finish the right side of the head and shoulders pattern. Mind you the h&s pattern is a little off, with a loosely defined neckline but has the appropriate volume spikes signaling it should finish the right side

    However, last 2 trading days have shown long wicks to the downside of the trade, nearly the same price area. has me worried that this gap is seemingly a huge support area? What are the thoughts on this trade
  2. Tried to edit first post, too soon

  3. hold, ma will drop to 200ish easily. if your size is large, trail it tight in case it suddenly bounce. i am shortimg it too, it is a no brain short. normally i hate to short monster. i like to short penny like RHD, PEIX, .... if you time well, your gain if you use full margin, would yield a fortune in a trade.

    to me, your short is just like from 2.77 to 2.5, that gain is too little!
  4. Well it's filling the gap :)

    how can you stand the volatility?Thats a huge drop....i wish i could hold onto huge winners like that...
  6. Not that much volatility unless you mean intra-day. Been a steady decline.

    I think it's about time to jump ship. Ma filled the gap but failed to go lower. 11%, not to shabby

    It's such a tight, well defined downtrend, I can't even think about covering until it violates it.
  8. well it was down when i covered, closed up 18 pts...
