PTEN Patterson-UTI Energy, Inc. short - on a downwards slide

NASDAQ:PTEN   PATTERSON UTI ENERGY INC
The Patterson-UTI stock has been in an intact downward trend since April of this year, a trend which really picked up the pace in particular towards the end of July. Since the last strong downward movement, the stock of the company has now recovered well and corrected almost one hundred percent. Currently, we can already see the first signs that it could go in the direction of the main trend once more, making the stock a potential candidate for the short direction.
In the hourly chart, the currently running correction can be seen, which was in a sideways phase and now develops in our preferred trading direction. For a short entry, we should wait for the formation of a signal, e.g. in the form of a P2, and place the stop loss above the last P3. Alternatively, and with the advantage of a cheaper stop, one can also practice trading from out of the correction or the formation of a reversal candle at a significant point.
The targets are located in the areas around approx. $15.00, which makes the stock even more attractive for short entries due to the potential down to the first target. If the price considerably exceeds the last significant high at approx. $21.00, we should abandon the short scenario for the time being ( daily chart , depicted in red).
