Trade Rationale

ETSY initially shot up to $145 after an earnings beat. However, due to the rotation out of the tech sector every single tech stock in Nasdaq is currently under pressure. Etsy dropped down to $120 which is a well established support level, causing me to take this trade. In addition to a well-established support level, the DI- indicator is also showing that the downward pressure may have fizzled out at this point.
