• Long bias
• Swing a long if this can pull back to 184.50
• Follow premarket action, it flushed to 188.70 to 189 take small long for a scalp up 189.50 and try to keep a small portion to hold if it starts to trade above this level for a period of time. If it does not hold the level. Use the remainder to fill out another long on the next higher low
• If this flushes to 187.50 take a bigger long looking for 188.50, close out and consider to long again if it breaks this level, hold and starts moving back towards 189.
Reading the Tape
I had some sense of momentum on most of these trades. I found a couple place around .55 and .47 that you could see some indifference in the tape. Pushes above and below these points were mostly short lived until the last 15 minutes.
The momentum was steady but not strong as this hit all of the last 3 or 4 HoDs other than the push past .71.
• There was no reason to sell the opening long. I need to wait for a change in the tape
• I need to find ways to get a little bigger on trades with this type of push this early in the session.
• The short off 193 was going to work. But, the long on AMRN was a higher probability and I only work one stock at a time currently
• I need to playbook a clean late day short off the HoD
