• Fade the gap if it sets up.. very small it has been a long time
• Long Bias heavy off of 86 if it gets there on spike at the open, or early afternoon looking for the trend reversal there
• Look for a longer profit taking and a slower pull back 87 and look for signs that this are will hold to start building a long
• IF the breaks and holds 89 at the opening take a small long up to 90 and reassess
Reading the Tape
I am reading the tape late in the day. I am catching the larger set of buyers in seller as I set up I was able to get this on the lower end of those on a few breaks on this one today. I had a decent bead on this today.
• I am feeling working these off levels especially around VWAP and around consolidation
• I caught a great runner and stayed sized.
• Good bead on the tape, sane enough to step away on the fallout.
