Short some IBM

I have been watching IBM quite closely the last few weeks. In particular the breakout from the multi-month consolidation zone which occurred back in late September. The volume was completely unimpressive, in my opinion for a break out from a 9 month consolidation.


Since the gap down following earnings Tuesday morning we have seen a weak volume rally. Based on this, I am punting 1 unit of IBM here on the short side at $139.95 


Good speculating to you all and please remember to never forget that "an investor is a speculator who made a mistake and will not admit it".
