    If $AMZN clears 3,048,300 shares traded today and you have a bona-fide "pocket pivot" buy point.

                • pollyserial: I didn't read it as an insult, but rather as a flip response to a fairly flip assertion. Irrelevant is a fairly blunt choice of words.

                        Short of an epic comeback, $FB looks down for the count. Disappointing. Just one word: Next.

                                Have sellers been wrung out of $FB? Absolutely bone-dry volume as it digests its 2-week 31% run. RS Line forging ahead of price....

                                        I would add $HLF $WYNN and $DE to the shortable list. Today's high is your cut-loss. Be sure to check the earnings calendar, by the way.

                                            $AAPL could also be a short, using the session's high as your cover point. Full short or starter...it's up to you.
