Monday's action

posted by Tom C:

X is gone most of this week, though he said he might pop in with a chart or two. I did not find a lot to trade on Monday - maybe you had more luck. I was watching AGN for an entry, and found one towards the end of the day. The 3:00 (ET) bar pushed down to test support from the opening range (OR) high, and the 3:15 bar bounced off that level, closed strong, and back above the 5MA. It was also a "Trader-X" offsetting bar (a down bar followed by an equal up bar).

I entered on a break of the 3:15 bar (ET), and the stock quickly rallied to the Fibonacci extension of the previous day's low to the OR high.

nice trade Tom... I'm always leery of those late day setups. What has been your experience with them?

In general, they are always less reliable.

But, I suffer the same affliction as most everyone - I keep looking if I don't have a lot of trades in the morning!
