Today's Trade: CSX

I went short 200 shares CSX at $36.48.

Setup: Overbought Bounce Nearing Resistance (anybody have a better name?). Stochacastic readings have reached extreme levels. The stock is nearing price and moving average resistance.

This is a short term trade. I'll exit when either my stop or target is hit.

Risk: My stop is above the moving average, in the around $37.60-38. The target is $33, though I may take partial profits earlier. This gives me a 2:1 reward to risk ratio.
