Management and risk description

The stock is currently in a strong correction on the daily chart and therefore it provides interesting targets at around $171 and $164 (figure 2,) in the desired short direction. A trader could be looking for a smaller size trend to get an entry into this trade. Figure 2 also shows a resistance zone, which additionally confirms the preferred short scenario.

This resistance zone consists of the SMA-200  (figure 2, red line) and the drawn trendline, which also supports the preferred short idea. The decreasing volume in the correction would be another indication which would additionally favour our idea.

If the stock breaks through the resistance zone our short scenario would be over. Before entering the trade it is necessary to look for news e.g. earnings.


Entry: $179.

Stop: $183.50.

Target: $170.80, $164.

Time horizon: medium-term.
