Diagonal Put Followed Rules Low Base Maverick

Daily Setup:
Low base break down occurred a few day prior to entry when price broke the $42 level. Price has tested 41.25 & 40.80 several times and buyers have been noted to step in at those levels.
Game Plan
The plan is to have a short term trade that is slowly drifting lower. IV is currently high on HLF. I entered a diagonal put spread and set it up to be profitable if it stayed below 42.15. Therefore it had some wiggle room to the upside if it was to bounce a little bit. The plan is to close the position at the end of the week due to the expiration of the long put.
$43 level - the chart shows strong resistance at that level.
$40 - but mainly, stay where it is or drift lower.
Reason to exit:
Closed the entire position due Short strike being ITM & the long put expiring next week.
