An Update To The Long AAPL Stock Trade That’s Looking Good

On today’s video I show you exactly how I added to the long AAPL stock trade after AAPL tested the November 16th low of 505.75 for a second time, and actually traded down to 501.23 . My average buy price is 509.77 and I will start managing this trade to start locking in profits. Yesterday turned out to be a bullish engulfing pattern (the daily bar took out Friday’s high and low and closed in the top quarter) followed by an up opening today to 525.00 – let’s see if this translates into being as bullish as I think it might be. Be sure to watch today’s video to get the exact details. Have a profitable day and I hope this helps you in your own trading.
