Shorting Goldman and RIMM

This rally has crushed the naysayers and emboldened the bulls. Double top happening? Low risk chance to test the theory. Getting short 1 unit of RIMM here at $134.20 with a stop at $139.34

Here we are rallied right into 'the box'. Gettting short 1 unit here at $199.10 with a stop at $209.14

Good Speculating to you all.

Cool site. When you say unit, are you referring to the front month in options? Which ones do you buy - ITM or OTM? Thanks!

thx for your note and the visit.
A unit for me is an adaptation of the Turtles trading algorithm which is based on account size, percentage risk and dollar volatility measures.

I don't trade options. A unit could be 50 shares or 2000 shares. a function of account size, percentage risk and position volatility. this way a trader with 10K can trade like one with 100MM

Hope this helps. you can read turtle trading (Richard Dennis) for help in this regard.
