Trade Rationale

W shot up to $304 after announcing great earnings. However, due to the sector rotation currently affecting Nasdaq, it dropped all the way down to $240 which is a well established support level. Which is what prompted me to take this trade. Sometimes, during steep sell-offs technical indicators don't have time to catch up, so you have to use the simple concepts of Support & Resistance to pick out these trades.

Trade Selection Criteria

Trade Analysis

W kept us guessing all through this trade. It entered a side-ways consolidation pattern after putting on the trade. We had to literally wait until the last day of expiration. But we are able to close it for our full profit target.
