I was about to take this company of my watch list until I had a quick look at their chart and seen the way the price has been swinging about 100 points up the down up then down etc! This is a perfect example of a share which can be traded within its established range so I have went long at around the 1390 point and hope to ride it up to the 1500 mark.  Obviously how it behaved in the past is no guarantee for the future but I will watch the price closely and set a sensible stop loss to get out if it starts to go wrong.

Their chart is a perfect example for Trading with Trends!

Example 2

Another fine example although not just as straight forward would be good old Dominoes Pizza

Trend of Dominoes

As it Grows as a company the market cant decide what it is worth so we get the big swings up with delusion at one point to 700p but then in general has a swing of around 80 points which I have been in and out of a bit.  I didn’t get out at the peak of £7 (maybe I fell asleep… maybe I too was deluded!)

So this is one to watch can we trade in and out? I think we can

Also I love pizza!
