After the opening bell, price action consolidated sideways and we waited for the normal first 30-minute reversal patterns to complete and price action started to oscillate around the opening bell with the 20MA below the 200MA. We patiently waited for confirmation of price action staying below the opening bell and took an aggressive SHORT setup based on a triangle pattern breakdown and new intraday low pattern. Price action quickly went in our favor and we captured 1.0+ point profit.
