The consolidation warning that was issued for Amazon (AMZN) on 10/10/13 has been cleared. This signal was a huge miss and illustrates two points that I often mention. The first is that trading against the trend will lower your batting average. The second is that the execution of a trade is much different than trade signals. A person who tried to short AMZN on this signal would have got a warning the very next day as the stock moved higher. A week later the stock gapped to new highs. This should have told anyone short the stock that the signal was a miss and consequently it was time to take the loss and wait for another opportunity.
