are you going to use those charts to protect you, to give you a clear cover point?

They all have (to my eyes) pretty well defined levels of resistance which if reached will change my mind about the positions. Some of these stops are not as close as I'd like, but they're reasonable, especially with some hedging if necessary.

Shorting GE naked is more fortitude than I have, against the box yes, but naked?? whew?

Well, I didn't say I shorted GE, just used it as an illustration.

I'll look at some regional banks, thanks. Any thoughts on Insurance or Health Care sectors?
