    AAPL – Looks like it want to make a push to the all-time high. Very attractive chart. I would call it an ascending triangle.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    F – The two day move is just crazy. Sometimes these stocks are trading completely outside the Bollinger Band and the herd is underinvested and wants to get in. You just have to close your eyes and hit the buy button instead of waiting for it to get back below the BB which is what I found myself doing yesterday.
    Best performing automotive stocks over the past month are GM and F. Target on GM is around 70 and it is at 56. TSLA and NIO are out of favour now.
