Since the market appears to be taking a dive (and with a lot of ex-div stocks around and possibly another interest rate rise in a few weeks) I thought it may be worthwhile finding some candidates to short. I'm looking at it from a T/A point of view but fundamentals (as above) are important to reinforce a bearish view.
I've got BHP, ZFX, BSL and OST on my list for short term plays (days or weeks). Will post charts later on the shorting aspect alone. There are separate threads on those stocks so have a look if interested, most views are long in those threads. There's also the timeframe, some will short stocks for weekly profits and others for monthly trades so we'll have to explain the timeframe to make sense of it.
Any suggestions on how to limit the type of stocks to include in this thread? It can't be junior resources or tiny IT co's since there isn't an effective way to trade them (ie need warrants or options and CFD's don't cover all stocks).
So maybe we'll stick to the ASX 300?? Any ideas?? Separate threads for Indices (xao, xjo etc) is best.
