3/19/2018: MLNX reversed with a downtrend signal from the Fisher Transform and I exited for a loss.
The shares position produced a 2.2% loss over three days for a -272% annual rate.
I have entered a long shares position on MLNX. The stock at the time of entry was priced at $73.95.
I made the decision to enter the trade in my account based on expectations for a positive earnings surprise, and longer-term bull rating from Zacks, a Fisher Transform uptrend signal on the daily chart and a bullish Elliott wave count.
The position is contrary to the trend of the equities markets as a whole, which are bearish according to the Elliott wave count.
MLNX publishes earnings on April 25 after the closing bell.
