Watch A Few AAPL Stock Day Trades and EPV Stock Trade Update

On today’s video I want to show you three (3) day trades on AAPL stock from yesterday that I think you can learn from. Two of the three trades were winners, the winners trumping the one losing trade of only .60…netting out +15.05 on the day. The fourth trade was a long trade at 532.55 which I decided to keep overnight, anticipating AAPL to move higher. As I’m writing this AAPL just opened up at 539.85 – currently trading at 543.95 at 9:56am ET – not too shabby! The EPV stock trade was a losing trade, opening down at 27.71 and taking out our sell stop at 27.70. Have a profitable day and I hope today’s video helps you in your own trading.

Swiss Franc FOREX Currency Pair and EPV Stock Trade Updates

On today’s video I go through the Swiss Franc (USFCHF) FOREX currency pair long trade where things are looking real good. As you know the first two profit objectives were hit on Friday for a combined profit of 139 pips ($1,390 per standard contract) on 80% of the position. The remaining 20% of the position is using a trailing stop, which is now placed at .9317 (locking in 23 pips). Be sure to watch the video to get all the details. Then I go over the long EPV stock trade that got executed Friday at a price of 28.27. The initial stop is down at 27.70 and the first profit objective is up at 28.99 – be sure to watch the video for the details on this trade too – have a profitable day and I hope this video helps you further in your own trading.

The Swiss Franc FOREX Currency Pair Hit Both Profit Objectives

If you watched yesterday’s video you would know that both of our profit objectives were hit to the upside yesterday in the US Dollar / Swiss Franc (USDCHF) FOREX currency pair. The first profit objective was hit at .9347 (+54 pips) and the second profit objective was hit at .9379 (+85 pips)…the trailing stop has now been moved up to .9317, locking in 23 pips on the remaining 20% of the position. Be sure to watch the video to get all the details. I’m still looking at the EPV stock trade, I really think it’s going to make a move to the upside, so I want to be on board if that happens. I first need to see this stock trade up through 28.27 for me to get on board. My stop on this will be down at 27.70 (risk .57) if this trade is executed. Be sure to watch the video for details. Have a profitable day and I hope this video helps you in your own trading.
