Price action immediately after the opening bell went lower and then created an ultra-aggressive 3-bar reversal setup and we went LONG. We micro-managed the trade and took 2.0+ points profit. After more confirmation for price action moving higher, we waited for a flag pattern and took a 4-bar reversal candlestick pattern LONG. We micro-managed the trade for 2.0+ points profit.
