My answer was a not so subtle, "Not on your life!"In last night's chart post, I mentioned that I liked SNCR on a pullback. Those that have been reading me for some time know that I only...

Earlier today, I mentioned that I felt there was a good chance AAPL would hold it's rebound from the lows of the day and print a long tail at the close. Sure enough, the stock closed near it's high and looks ready for another leg higher, assuming we get confirmation tomorrow. If the stock closes... Continue Reading →
