One new trade to report today and that is in Gafisa (GFA) - a stock that I'm pretty sure I've never traded in before, but is coiling nicely near the highs of its current price action.

I didn't wait for the breakout on this trade before entering, primarily because the risk/reward was so favorable at the current price, and there was significant support for the stock above the 20-day moving average. 

As a result I added GFA to the portfolio as a swing-trade at $4.48. 

Today's short setup comes from ISIS Pharmaceuticals (ISIS) which may seem surprising because of the incredible uptrend it has been on of late, but what you have is a perfect double-top pattern, followed by its confirmation and subsequent bear-flag. Once it can break the uptrend it is on, it should drop hard and fast.
