    Appreciate the analysis. However, the chart already looks like the bull trend is over for now. Failed two weeks ago by dropping below ascending wedge as well as neckline of inverse head and shoulder pattern around $132.

      You may he right. I will say though some of my best entries have occurred when that shorter timeframe looks bearish as you outline, but the trend is up and fundamentals are strong. When short term technicals look obviously bearish sometimes those signals get crushed as longer Term players but the liquidity from weak hands. We will see. I think the success of this trade hinges on their earnings in June and general market sentiment. This is s higher risk trade as I mentioned. Thanks for input.

    I like Louis, very engaging guy with thorough, well thought out presentations. I'd like to suggest to RV that they track the results of prior Trade Ideas from each contributor. Even something as simple `Ups vs Downs of prices from published dates. Of course, a more detailed performance review is even better.

    Great fundamental and technical combined analysis (as always...) from Louis Llanes. One question: Does anybody knows whether Market Profile Graph and/or AVWAP analysis available on Bloomberg Professional platform?
