We introduced the Slope Tiles page a little earlier this month, and we’ve already given it a bevy of improvements. The latest is one directly from a suggestion that TNRevolution made. It was regarding the comments tile, and Rev said he’d want to be able to enter a search string (which could be a ticker symbol or just regular words) so that, optionally, the comments tile would display only comments that included whatever was typed.

On the downside a break below that channel support, currently in the 4145 area, would be a good indication that the larger retracement I am thinking is likely here is in progress.
A possible double top formed at the retest of the all time high last week, and on a sustained break below last week’s low at 4118 the double top target would be in the 4043 area.(more…)
Thirteen months of ceaseless ascent have pushed almost every stock to lifetime highs, but there are a few holdouts that still – – even in this environment! – – are prospective good short candidates. I offer these five:(more…)
