Name of Instrument: Jet Blue Airways

Sell Stop: Trailing Stop 11.47

Current Price: 12.41

Reason for Trade: After testing the 50 DMA twice, it gapped up over the 10 DMA and gave a good tight risk to below the 50 DMA. Has cleared the 6 month calendar range as well. If can hold and clear recent highs 11.59 see 12.00 or higher
