SUN - 020206; 15-minute chart


1.) What did I see?
A gap down and wide-range first bar. The second bar was a narrow-range, inside bar that left a long upper tail/wick and closed weak.
2.) What is the entry?
A break of the second bar low*.
3.) What is the exit?
The target was the Fibonacci extension of the previous day's high to the opening range low; it was hit five bars later. Note how price reversed at that point and never went lower.

*as with any entry below/above a previous high/low (in the case of my charts, the opening range (OR) high/low), you need to watch for resistance/support as price approaches those levels. If it stalls, you want to exit. If it breaks through, the odds are good you will have a move to the corresponding Fibonacci extension.
