Double shorts today in the Lazy Trades. I scoured the universe near and far, and just couldn't find any setups to my liking that provided a nice edge as a swing-trade. Therefore, I'm coming at you with a double dose of the short setups today .

As a result, I've added HOLX as a short at $20.16 on a retest of the neckline of the head and shoulders pattern that was recently confirmed.

This is a bit of a stretch, but I'm seeking a graphic/web designer for my SocialTrade site. I've long felt the site could use a fresh coat of paint, so to speak, and as easy as it would be to find designers on a place like CraigsList, I'd much rather see if any Slopers happen to be (or, more likely, know of………) good web designers that actually might have an actual interest in the concept too.
If you know anyone, please drop me a line. Thanks! (Gratuitous picture of cute artist shown below:)
