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 rapidly. 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. Medtronic can break to ATH any time soon, as it only needs to go up a 0.86%. The buy point is at $131.64 if you want to trade with this strategy. Arm your stop-loss at $118.48
