Game Trader: The Nintendo Switch Launch Stock Trade is Over

Readers and viewers of the Game Trader feature here at Shacknews know that I am somewhat of a perma-bull on Nintendo's stock. This doesn't stop me from looking at the company's stock objectively using chart-based technical analysis. While I believe there is still tremendous long-term upside to investing Nintendo's shares, stock traders have no reason to take a risk right now with the Big N. The Nintendo Switch launch stock trade is over.

I alerted our readers to a quarterly buy signal on Nintendo's stock chart back in April 2017. The reversal strategy upside breakout above $30.96/share netted traders a fine gain, with Nintendo's stock (NTDOY) closing just under $40/share today and having hit a 6 year high over $44/share just last month. Sadly, the stock is in no man's land right now from a technical perspective. Please take a look at this video for an in-depth look at Nintendo's stock from a technical analysis perspective.
