Today's Trades: GMRK, EWZ and AAPL

Yesterday, I sold 200 shares of AAPL at $108.25 (entry at $101.25) for a $1400 (+6.9%). I had moved my trailing stop when the stock hit $110. I have a feeling a long tail is going to print today, followed by another move up. I hope I didn't sell too early using too tight of a stop.

I sold 250 shares of EWZ at $56.47 (entry at $52.78) for a $922 gain (+7.1%). The reason for getting out is stochastics, RSI and OBV are printing divergences (lower highs) at the new high.

I bought 400 shares of GMRK at $49.76. We have a low volume pullback of a trending stock from the recent high of $54. These types of pullbacks have held strong during the trend, and I'm betting that this one will be no different. I haven't decided whether to place my stop under the 50 day moving average ($46.72) or under recent congestion at $48.

I also bought GMRK yesterday. Where did you set your stop?

I had it under the 50 day ma, but moved it up today.
