One of my regular readers wanted my take on a choppy chart of

Cisco

(CSCO) - Get Cisco Systems, Inc. Report

.

The stock has been trading in a $3 range for several months.

But the price has finally moved back above the 50-day moving average, and yesterday's close was above the upper Bollinger Band on fairly heavy volume.

That's bullish. So, if you're long, why not just sit on your hands and let the market do the rest?

As long as the rest of the market is strong, I'm sure CSCO will tag along.
