Why this former NYSE trader bought shares of AMC, Affirm and Moderna on Tuesday?

Veteran trader David Green was back live trading on Benzinga Tuesday morning, and the old trader made some trades in some big names like Confirm Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: AFRM), AMC Entertainment Holdings (NYSE: AMC) and Moderna Inc (NASDAQ: MRNA).

Shares of AMC had a strong day on Monday, after Walt Disney Cos (NYSE:DIS) announcement that the rest of Disney’s 2021 movies will have in-theatre premieres only.

On Tuesday, AMC shares opened about 1.5% lower. Green issued an order to buy 100 shares of AMC for $49.20.

“I like this level here in AMC,” said Green. “This is starting to be a nice trade.”
