After the opening bell, price action opened and oscillated around the opening bell and the 20MA. With the market conditions very unfavorable, we decided to only pursue 1.0+ point targets this morning. Price action initially moved lower below the opening bell and then reversed back up above the 20MA and the opening bell. We took an aggressive LONG entry after 3-bar reversal and we captured 1.0+ point profit.
