Profit Alert (MRO)/ Trade Alert (INTC) for 6/8/2021

11:55am (EST)

I have two more Trade Alerts today that will leave the portfolio with no open positions. However, I do expect to get into 1-2 new trades this week but the choppy action remains frustrating and we don’t want to trade, just to be trading.

The overall market is pulling back and we will likely need to confirm new all-time highs for momentum to return.
