Since keeping a list of short set-ups even in the most bullish of market has been key to his trading success over the years, Ryan Mallory, of SharePlanner.com, shares a list of short set-ups to aid the trader in his search for the last remaining short set-ups that have yet to bow the knee to the bulls.

So use the list below to aid in your search for the last remaining short set-ups that have yet to bow the knee to the bulls.

Here's the list:
