How we've managed $MU for a +30% gain

$MU provides us with a great case study for what to look for in a winning stock. Our Advanced Reports members have been long $MU since the advanced pivot entry on 11/14 at 17.94

The Setup:

$MU set up in a relatively tight (approx 12% deep) 1st stage flat base with a classic pivot at 18.33. Within the base, $MU presented us with an earlier advanced pivot at 17.94-17.98. Often we’ll a larger consolidation (the flat base highlighted above) and a smaller/tighter consolidation within that base (also shown above). This not only allows us to get in early and ahead of the crowd, but it also allows us to lower our risk.

In this scenario support can be seen around the 50dma and the 16.75 level. From the classic pivot of 18.33 we would be risking about 9.5% for a break of support. However, from the advanced pivot of 17.94 we would only need to risk about 6.5% to test support.
