Shorting HSBC and watching Heating Oil.

The chart above of British bank HSBC ticker HBC has had a wonderful, polyannic run of late. Causing extreme pain for the bears. The time has come to take advantage of the recent rollover and get short 1 unit of HBC here at $83.75 I will add on a move below $83 barring a major multiple pt. gap down thru that level.

The heating oil etf ticker UHN is a relatively new trading vehicle so it is a little thin. As my notes indicate I missed the move up thru $54. I have been watching and waiting and still am with an eye on the $58 area to get acquainted on the long side.

Housekeeping notes;

I was stopped out of Allis Chalmers ticker ALY at $16.25 this morning on the open which was the low of the day, so far. This represents a small gain of just less than 2 pts which is much better than a surprise kick in the teeth party!


Good speculating to you all.
