Since then, the stock has moved up steadily, with the trailing stop obediently following on behind. Moving up in a parallel fashion like this keeps the open risk at acceptable levels. This is a classic example of a stable trending market.
Even though there may currently be some indecision in the general market, there is no rushing to close a trade like this for fear of losing any profit. The trailing stop will take us out of the position, and future price action will determine when that is.
