Apple (AAPL) has broken above an area it has tested a few times recently in the $210 area.

Initially, myself and many other traders wondered if it could break through that level as well as stay above the 50-day moving average, which it has.

This breakthrough, combined with the fact that MacWorld Expo is coming up in early February, should combine for a healthy move to the $225 level, although it may take a month to get there. 

Apple isn’t officially participating in MacWorld Expo in 2010, but the buzz that always surrounds the Mac-centric trade show should be enough to push the stock higher.

There are also rumors of a new product announcement in late January.

If you are willing to wait, AAPL should be a nice swing trade for those who are patient enough for the ride.
