Hey all, does anyone have a good explanation as to why SWHC has risen about 10% over the past five days? Does this change need any explanation beyond just ordinary market flux?

Thanks in advance.

I would like to remind everyone to leave politics out of the forums.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Sure, I probably should have mentioned that; I definitely wasn't fishing for any kind of political response.

As I see it:
It seems that SWHC is making a bear flag. The flag is in a well defined channel; I would look to perhaps short at the upper trendline around $9.90. A measured move for the 2nd leg down would give us a target of about $6.25. Interesting to see what happens from here.

A 2nd look at my crystal ball shows that the probable second leg down gives us a target of $5.25, and not $6.25. See if it makes to $9.90 first or not; it may just fail from here and turn down...

I was planning to short SWHC, but just found out it is not shortable by my broker Schwab (Hard to Borrow). Looked at options, but coulddn't find a strategy that I was comfortable with/that made money sense...wide spreads for one

Pre-market SWHC is up near $10 where I think probablities are higher that it will start going lower from here. A 0.50 cents stop would have been just right. See if it was a lost opportunity, or that I lucked out and didn't loose my money. I would have waited for a confirmation of my signals with price action before taking the short.

Thanks to the original poster for drawing my attention to this set-up.

SWHC looks OK so far today, is trading at 10.18 now, has higher than normal volume and an opening gap that was taken out.

I have not seen a set-up confirmation til now, closest being a 30-minute doji at 12:00 PM (not enough confirmation for me), and if it breaks the 10.24 it might just make it to the $11.25 area again....

I won't obsess over this much longer as I can't take a short anyhow.
Good luck to longs and to the shorts.
