    This was an excellent trade idea, in general taking long position on market leader expecting a run up into earnings and the specific ticker of MSFT. Definitely a repeatable strategy that you can go into with defined risk. Her trade idea on ADBE earlier this year was also spot on. In this video she made mention of a squeeze, I assume TTM squeeze, showing up but did not show the charts.

    Danielle- If you do another trade idea would love to see the chart setup like you did with the ADBE trade. Would also enjoy if you could do a technical trader video that shows how you set up screens and scan for potential trade set-ups.

    Taking profits on Microsoft today as it hits $104. Next target to the upside is $106.

    Options price is $6.9 at the time of publishing. Reducing risk reward ratio.

      Yes - however like I said, any day in which the market pulls back is a good time to add onto this one, up until about a week before earnings. I added some more delta .50 calls this morning on NQ strength and strength in MSFT. I picked them up for $2.48, looking for about a double.

    $ORCL/$RHT sold off after revising down on FX.... This could make action into eps report this qtr messy with MSFT trading @ 6.9x sales and 25x 2018.... Expectations high no?
