STOP giving up gains. Use a *reliable trailing-stop. $ACB $MJ #cannabis #markets #trends #trendfollowing #heikinashi

Aurora Cannabis ($ACB) daily

  • Regardless of what RSI(14) says (overbought or oversold), use a trailing-stop to capture more of the existing trend.
  • As the old books say, when RSI(14) falls below 90 or 70, it’s time to exit (overbought). False. As long as the close remains above the trailing-stop, RSI(14) is noise, has only informational value, and it’s not a decisional factor.
  • The risk factor is the only variable the trader may or may not feel comfortable with (13.63% in this case).


MJ (Cannabis ETF) daily

  • (+) Ascending triangle, ready to explode.
