Trade Rationale

LRCX has now become a regularly traded stock in our group. It did have a pre-earnings runup like many earnings trade setups but sold off immediately after earnings. When this post-earnings profit taking happens, we just need to enter a trade at some kind of support level. I saw the support at $500 and entered there. Of course, with the broader market sell-off happening, LRCX got pulled back all the way down to $475 and many of our traders got into really low spreads, eg. $475 - $480. If the sell-off had continued, this could have been dragged down to next support at $460 too. Irrespective of how low it went and what happend, if it stays above $505, all trades will make the same amount of money.
