Let's take a look at Apple stock (AAPL) daily chart.  It was gaining ahead of Tuesday's quarterly earnings releases (May 1st), and it rallied after the fact. On that Tuesday I  wrote, that "we will likely see a more clear reaction. Probably to the upside, as there seems to be some "sell the rumor, buy the fact" action going on".  And  I was right! The stock reached new record high on Friday, as it broke above resistance level of around $175-180
