We wrote about Crown Castle International Inc. (CCI) at the beginning of July saying, "CCI is in an uptrend so I would continue to trade it from the long side. Hold previous purchases and use a sell stop below $155 for now. Add to longs above $174. The $237 area is our price target for later this year."
Now that the shares rallied to $180 the other day an update to our strategy is in order.
In this daily bar chart of CCI, below, we can see that prices touched a new high of $180. Traders should have or could have added to longs above $174. With the chart and indicator still bullish longs could raise their sell stops to a close below $165 from below $155.
