We are in a bull market, when I sell individual stocks short and the overall trend of the market is higher, I;
– trade smaller share size
– do not chase weakness lower
– take partial profits quickly
– lower stops above “the most recent lower high”
– honor stops, no justification of holding a loser
These are not recommendations, just chart observations of weak stocks which look ripe for downside.
As always, “make the trade your own.”
