Management and risk description

On the daily chart we can see this downtrend, which is drawn in blue. The down movements have much more volume which is a good indication for a short trade. Currently the stock made a 90% correction and we could get an entry very soon.

For a medium-term short trade we could wait for a subordinate downtrend to get an entry into this trade. With increasing selling pressure this trade our targets are $77.50 and $63.00.

Above the price level of $91.00  our short idea would be over and we would have to wait until the stock made a new trend.
