Legs are formed when a stock has a push in price. Typically only used on stocks that are running. For example, If a stock makes a leg up then experiences x number of days of pullback then looks like it is setting up to go higher then it looks like its setting up to form another leg.

@CrowofShortClan Thank you, and sorry if I'm being slow, but what do you mean by a "push in price"?

I'm from the states all of the brokerages that I know of don't care about your credit score. I don't have a credit score, and I can short. The brokerage policies may differ in Sweden. I would recommend contacting the brokerage you wish to short with and see what there policy is.

First red day is an extremely beautiful I have a whole watch list of over-extended stocks I've shorted. First green day breakout is another nice one these are the two patterns I play. I like to swing both ends to maximize profits and conserve day trades, but the beauty of it is you don't have to stick around that long if you choose not to. $CEMI, CHWY, KALA are recent examples of first green day. I don't have any recent example I could show you for first red day.

If price keeps running up you capture those gains. This worked very well for me with $DECN trade was able to get 64% on it. I sold it right after it peaked not support level.Tried again wil $BIOL

You have to think in terms of consistent profits growing the account.

I use TD and the Think or Swim platform. I am not a fan of their scanner though because it is not real time in pre-market. That is the time of day when I find most of my trades and look for biggest gainers. If I can catch then at the top premarket, sometimes I go short. Otherwise, I try to catch a sell off after open on stocks with low floats and news. Currently, I am loving stockstotrade.com software. It was quite a blessing to me last month when I started to use it.

i think you csn expect it to fall tomorrow. The stock market has made gains for 3 days in a row. First time in months, so we should see a loss tomorrow in certain sectors. I would wait a day or 2 to buy

Just off a quick chart analysis if it can't hold in the $32s then next is $31 if it can't bounce there $30 is the next support. Finished weak today, but still did hold $32. I would have to see the next candle on the daily to give a confident prediction for where its headed.

It seems ok after looking it up just now. I would be careful picking it up here because it hit a 1 year high Friday and checking the 5 year chart it's around that key resistance in 15-17 area. I wouldn't call it a pump and dump but you don't want to be investing here, maybe look for a day trade to scalp it.

thanks for the responds. ill wait later and try to short sell it. ill scalp it until it drops I'm afraid to go long on this one.

Wouldn't consider it a pump. I would recommend to avoid stocks that don't communicate a clear opportunity to monopolize off of.

Greetings Hunter, always good to see a fellow dedicated short seller. If you want to enter in depth conservation about short setups, chart patterns, trader psychology etc. we should use discord or something of the sort. I feel you on that not having anyone to discuss/exchange thoughts with on short selling or trading at all really for me.

Also, I have plenty of stock analysis that you could analyze if your interested. If you detail your trades, I would appreciate if you would be willing to share your trading logs.

Usually summer is pretty slow. Sometimes December is because of the January effect. People/fund sell stocks that they've lost money on in December so they can write them off on their taxes. Then they buy them back in January which causes a lot of long and short plays.
