After the opening bell, price action initially went below the opening bell, crossed below our pre-market swing pivot low and we probed with a SHORT entry and took 1.0+ points profit. Price action then found minor support before reversing back above the opening bell. We patiently waited for the confirmation of a higher low and the flag pattern breakout and took an aggressive series of LONG trades based on new intraday highs and a flag pattern breakouts. We pursued small 1.0+ point targets and captured 1.0+ point profit from each one.
