Is DE (John Deere) a Short Setup?

A Trade Report member sent me an email about DE. Here is the e-mail and my response

I think it is great time to short "DE"? RSI, OBV and MACD are all bearish...plus, the Durable good is bad..

While the price pattern is not bearish, I agree in that RSI is showing a slight negative divergence and the stock is overbought. Resistance at $47-48 gives us an easy to manage trade, with a stop just obove that level. Teh $42.50 pivot area gives us an easy targt. Nice reward to risk.

However, keep in mind there is also a loose cup and handle formation and we could see a breakout at resistance. As long as you manage the trade properly and are willing to take a small loss, the trade is acceptable even with that concern.

i see a reverse head and shoulder forming..ofcourse it is valid once it breaks the resistance line..
