Many good short sell set ups

The bounce has created number of god short sell set ups in sectors like Airlines, investment banks and many other sectors which were leading sectors few months ago.

The individual stocks which broke out in last couple of weeks like BTJ,RRI,ALJ,WNR,ADBL,GLBL,METH, HTC,UCTT,JSDA,EVEP,JAV, DXPE,FFH,TRCR, PRGX, WFR, etc., have been moving up. Most of them are up 25% or more since then breakout. All of these stocks broke out post market correction. More than 70% of them had a Episodic Pivot breakout in last 20-30 days.

While such stocks and more stocks from the Episodic Pivot list and 100% list and IBD200 list will have such moves, overall I am skeptical of the bounce. The main reasons being, it has come too soon. It takes certain amount of time, ideally 40 to 60 days from start of correction for a tradable and sustainable bounce to develop. I am anticipating the current move to fail. Number of individual stocks which had rallied till now in the up move from July onwards are showing signs of breaking down.So the move might lead to failure or long sideways move. In such environment, individual stock selection is the key. The best method for that in my current scheme of things is Episodic Pivots.

Select stocks which had 100% plus move in last 260 days from the low and which are up more than 4% on higher volume. Today's minimum volume is above 100000. To understand how to trade this see the post "How to find a stock which makes a 1500% plus move in a year".

As I had mentioned before:
1) Markets go down till March 16, 2007. (options expiration)
2) Markets go up till March 31, 2007 (End of Quarter)
3) Markets go down again after March 31 till April 17, 2007.

CECE moved quick from up to down. Earnings miss, but a big increase nonetheless, and revenue exceeded estimates. I'm waiting for the conference call to see what happens ...

CECE had doubled since its last earnings. That is one of the reason to use the 65 day consolidation/weakness filter. While long strength is good, near term strength is not good for fresh entry.
I find many times you are buying stocks near top. I do not understand how your model works but my research shows better entries are after a near term consolidation , especially on high relative strength plays.

Not the best time to be going short. Your are fighting a strong market.
