    Excellent to see Brian Shannon on RV, well done. Brian has a rigorous and highly disciplined process that he uses very effectively on individual stocks. The guy is very consistent with his approach and RV needs to make him a regular.

    This video is top quality. Love the TA. Looking at the technical analysis for an individual stock on the basis of some positive murmurs of fundamental analysis (e.g. revenues) of the individual stock is not good context. The reality of herding requires context like technically what the overall market is doing, including market internals not just the headline indices, and then technically what its industry sector is doing relative to the total market. I'm sure you have wider market/sector reasons for being bullish. Can see VWAP on thinkorswim (TD Ameritrade) but I don't think it's easy to anchor a starting point and average from there, which looked very useful. Very important to factor in volume and time spent at different prices.

    AMAZING that you guys got Brian Shannon to come on. He is an absolute technical trading Jedi who has such a great style & way of "reacting" to charts rather than trying to predict them. More from him in Technical Trader, please!

      Joe, this is Louis Llanes. I agree. Brian attends our local CMT chapter in Denver and is a very insightful guy.

    The 'profit taking' on Feb 5th was Mubadala Investment selling USD 820mio of stock. They converted therir bond and have another USD 400mio to go.

    Very thorough analysis and explained in a manner easy to follow. Please compare this video to Peter Brandt's published on the same day. Shannon explained every tool he used and explained why he was using it. More Shannon, less Brandt.

      Brandt is actually phenomenal when he's in his element (classical chart patterns). That video today was just too cursory and didn't add a lot of value, so I agree there's a stark contrast.
