SSS - Short-Sale Target Stocks Rallying into Potential Resistance

Published : September 8 2011 at 12:37 ET

We note that a number of stocks on our short-sale watch list have rallied into logical resistance. For the bold and the restless, and those who wish to short the market into President Obama's "jobs speech" tomorrow, take a look at the following stocks: UA, TIF, EL, PX, BIDU, SINA, SOHU, AGU, MOS, VMW, AND RAX. Some of these are rallying into overhead supply, the 50-dma, the 200-dma or the 65-edma. We suggest reviewing these on  a real-time charting system.

We would suggest using a tight stop on the day, 3% or the intra-day high of the day for any of these should one choose to take short positions. Also, take measured positions depending on your risk tolerance  in case there is a gap-up open tomorrow, although we tend to think that any good news coming out of the speech is likely already baked into the cake.
