What does type “Long” mean in the stock pick alert?

When you are Long a stock, you are looking for the price to go higher. Example:

  • Buy MSFT at $44.30 on a Long alert
  • Goal is to sell at a higher price than $44.30 to make a profit
  • If you sell below $44.30 you have to take a loss

When the market is trending higher, there are more Long trading opportunities.
