Totally agree, from a trading point if it breaks under 90 the downside move will accelerate.

Pretty good prediction above. 90 did turn out to be a support level (so far)
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

I bought at 91.15 with a tight stop at 88.90. This is a short term trade.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Why not a trailing stop?

Because fundamentally I agree 100% with what you said, it can rally a few points to get buyers in and then gap down big one day soon , i only bought 300 shares and already sold out at 98.75,small quick profit.

Equifax Sacks 2 Executives, Gets Devious to Stop You from Getting a Credit Freeze.They’re terrified a mass credit freeze will crush revenues.Shares of Equifax dropped another 4% today, including after-hours, to $92.70. They’re now down 35%, or $50, from the happier era that ended at 5pm EST on September 7, with the confession that it had found out six weeks earlier that the most crucial personal data – “primarily names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers”
 So far, at 120.4 million shares outstanding as of June 30, the six trading days have cost investors $6 billion. No one cares about consumers. They’re just the product. But $6 billion matter.
Now heads are rolling. Oh no, not CEO Richard Smith. He is not leaving the company to spend more time with his family. Instead, Equifax announced Friday evening that it sacked two lower level executives. I mean, not sacked. Chief information officer, David Webb, and chief security officer, Susan Mauldin, “are retiring,” it said, “effective immediately.”

They fired Mauldin? There's got to be someone more expendable than the chief Music major at that compqny. Who is going to play violins on the deck?

Is there any hope of the stock rebounding?  Would it be a good idea to buy Equifax?

Possibly a bit late to jump on that bandwagon.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

IMHO stay away from picking stocks until you have a bit of a better understanding of the stock market.

To short a stock means to borrow shares to sell in anticipation of them going down in price.  Then the short seller can buy shares at the lower price to repay the shares he borrowed.
