Bear Trap for Short-Sellers of FAANGs?

Was Tuesday’s downdraft just a shakeout of and a bear trap for short-sellers, or the beginning of further weakness in the FAANGs + 5 Tech stocks that make up FNGU?

Keep an eye on the ROC and the zero level on Chart #1 below. It’s shown with an input value of 12 days (its default setting).

So far, only AAPL and TSLA’s ROC has dropped below zero. If the others follow suit in the coming days, we may see a big selloff occur in Tech, overall.

As development winds down on the new Slope site (since we’re almost ready to launch), I’m able to commit more hours to SlopeCharts again. Today’s improvement is simple but something I’ve been really wanting: keyboard shortcuts to toggle volume on/off and earnings on/off. ProphetCharts used to have this, and now SlopeCharts does do. Just press Ctrl-Spacebar to toggle volume on and off, and Ctrl-E to toggle earnings dates on and off. The video below shows the old way (slow) and the new way (instant).
