Reading the TapeIt was very important to read the tape in this stock. CMCSA made a double top against yesterays after hours high in the premarket and then drove down. It then proceeded to hold below this 50c level and never lift by a cent. This is a good place to begin short position.
Initially got short here when Took some risk off when broke 20c there was a seller at 50c by a cent then bought back. Re that would never lift. shorted when the offer was now Scalped some at 30c being held at 32c. Shorted more when 20c broke. Flat into steep downmove and pattern seemed to change. Re shorted whenStarted loading up there was a newwhen the seller at 65c seller. Shorted50c seemed to now 3 lots against thisbe present at 40c.Had most of theposition against40c. Got stoppedout of some when Covered half in frontbroke above but of 41.00 but then Reshorted 2 lotsimmediately Covered risk at previous readded when it when made newreshorted when low at 45c, some at soft began to hold below low, covered forthere was still gap fill at 30c, and the rest 41.00 now. Short momo at 45c andselling at 50c. in steep downmove around more again for momo then stopped out 15c below 90c of other above 60c
Trade ReviewThis stock really couldnt have traded any cleaner. There was a very clear seller during the entire move and gave great opportunities to manage your risk against. Did a good job sticking with it and setting alerts at the proper areas to look for follow throug.
