In the current situation of Extra Space Storage there is just one buy setup eligible:

ATH buy setup

One of the most recommended trading strategies is to buy on All-time Highs (ATH) breakouts. The good point of buying at all-time highs is that shares price doesn't struggle with upper resistances, and usually it scales fast. However, you must always be aware of a possible bulls trap that may trigger your buy order and then drops sharply. That's why a stop loss is always important. Price is now at 1.64% of all-time highs and it can breakout at any time, so if you want to trade this setup it's recommended to setup your order at $177.00. The stop loss would be ordered at $159.30
