Recommended Trade (based on the charts)

Buy Levels: If you want to get in on this trade, you can purchase the shares of BLUE above yesterday’s high. This translates to a price of around $65.50.

In other words, this trade offers nearly 2x to 3x more potential upside than downside.

Risks to Consider

The stock may reverse its overall trend if it breaks down from the downtrend channel breakout level with a high volume. The sell-off of the stock could also be triggered in case of any negative news, overall weakness in the market, or any regulatory changes in the sector.

Happy Trading!
