We leaned on two usually, but not always, reliable signs
of market activity: A high volume, wide range bar, which
is still in play, and highest volume at the high of a rally,
as of Wednesday. Turns out, the high volume at the top
may have been more buying, and not selling [?] at the
high on Wednesday.
It has been a while since we recommended an outright
short position, and a full position, at that, so it shows
how disposed we were to going short.
“Usually, but not always…” became not always and shows
how anything can happen. That is what stops are for.
