ATH buy setup

All-time Highs is always an excellent buy point for those who like to buy high and sell higher. The good point of buying at ATHs is that price doesn't have upper resistances, and usually it scales quickly. However, you must always be aware of a possible bulls trap that may trigger your buy order and then falls sharply. That's why a stop loss is so important. Price is now at 1.90% 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 $39.65. The stop loss would be set at $35.69
