GOOGLE TO OPEN RETAIL STORES?
According to reports today, Google is planning on opening retail stores in time for this coming holiday season. Google feels it's necessary to open stores to showcase their technology, Google Glass. Google Glass is wearable technology and it will act much the same way as a smart watch, which Apple is apparently working on right now.
Taking a cue out of the Apple playbook, Google feels it's necessary to have retail stores so regular people, not just super techies, can try on their invention and see how it works.
Whatever the reason, the market seems to like that idea and has pushed Google's stock over $800 for the first time.
Personally speaking, I am going to stick with my smartphone and smart watch and take a pass on Google Glass, but not a pass on Google stock. Go Google!!!
Let's see how our Trade Triangles are interpreting Google's latest moves.

Have a great trading day, see you tomorrow.
