“Saw that AXP went up over 20% in overnight trading and thought that there should be a nice retracement.  Calculated it to be at around $24.00.  Put in a short order with a decent sized stop at $25.71.  Although I came close to being stopped out my prediction came true the following day.  In order to find the day’s bottom I used trend based analysis combined with MACD indicators.  I could maximize profits by increasing my position when my trends are clearly defined and comfirmed.”
