Strong entry and price momentum on the 7th November with AAL forming a bullish flag on the 60 minute chart (as below).

This is no coincidence as it is a strong support and resistance level. Then, with the oil price weakening on the 12th and 13th November, the Bullish momentum resumed. Our Swing trade for AAL hit our target zone during the trading session on the 13th November. We usually see airline stock prices rise when oil dives.
