Explanation:

After the opening bell, price action initially went above the opening bell and as expected shortly afterwards, reversed below the opening bell and formed a 2X bottom.  Momentum then push higher with multiple swing higher lows and towards new intraday highs after closing above the 20MA and the swing pivot high. We waited for the 1-minute charts to confirm momentum above the new intraday highs and we aggressively took a LONG entry based on a new intraday high. Momentum moved in our favor and we easily captured 2.0+ points profit.
