I just built a simple trading system and took a buy on apple today at $123. My initial stop is at 120.74.

Hi SB,
Am watching for the time being, sold my last trade on 6/7 around $125, did not buy the dip. Will buy when AAPL settles down as to direction. I never short AAPL, will stay out if it fails to break triangle - up on volume. I expect some consolidation here maybe a drift down. The "i-phone" comes out 6/29 but I think hype has done all it's going to do. Been wrong before so TWT B)

Nothing beats trading an over-hyped stock with a PE of 44. Hey, lets ramp it up to 100. Waiting for the end of day numbers to be available in my data download so that I can see what my stop loss tool moves the stop up to. Think I'll run over to the hardware store in the meanwhile.

I buy AAPL frequently on a market signal as part of a stock basket. Got the market signal today so own it near the close. Looking at Mss's chart with all those indicator lows above lows and the reversal day itself in the stock price, I think if the market pops tomorrow, AAPL could try its recent highs at 125-127. Good luck to both of us, and Mss -- thanks for the chart.

FYI, SB: Sold AAPL on the close Friday. Lost a point. The market plopped instead of popped. I'd rather not be holding any more risk just in case the market wants to dive instead of dip. Will buy AAPL again when market turns up which I suspect will be soon (maybe Monday).

I'm just killing time on this one while I'm building some new systems. So far it's up a bit today. I'll push my stop up a bit end of day.
