Wacky Wiki Wizards Wanted

By -

Thanks for the efforts of one Michael Silverman – – Slope's own Bob Ross – – the beginnings of a wiki are in place. What I need are some volunteers who are….

+ Technically proficient enough to create wiki pages without having to be wet-nursed;

+ Clever enough to write good pages;

+ Having-no-lives enough to put a little time into this creative act.

Drop me a line if you want to give it a shot, and I'll set up an account for you. The articles you create will be up to you. We want to create a treasury of Slope culture. Let's see if this comes together or not.


62 Short Setups with Stop-Losses (by Ryan Mallory)

By -

Last week I had so many short setups in my stop-loss I had to divide
it up into three posts. This week, I've narrowed it down to only ONE
post. I've weeded out some of those that, with the recent market rally,
don't quite have the bearish case that they once did. But as always, the
setups below fall into one of three categories:

1) Price and volume pattern is intriguing

2) Stock has been heavily sold-off in the recent days or weeks, but
still remains on the list for a possible short off of a weak rally, and

3) Stock is one of intrigue to me, such as Goldman Sachs (GS), so I
keep it around in the case that there is a setup that is too good to
pass up.

Most of them though fall under condition one. I've also gone ahead
and highlighted those stocks that are new to the list. The stop-losses
for ALL of the stocks have been updated.

UGH! I always forget to take the cursor off of the excel cells. Oh
well, I'm sure you all can live with that.
