1) This was a 2nd entry short coming off a larger double top soon after the regular market open this morning. Notice that you could have taken the first entry off the DT, but because it was so close to the open, it was probably better to wait a few minutes and not get trapped on the wrong side of the early morning move that usually happens right after the 8:30 AM CST opening.

3) This was a breakout pullback long with a great reversal type bar to go long above. After a bullish leg up that was as strong as the one that just came off the double bottom back near trade #2, you would expect another leg up of similar length. If you measure the first leg up, you will see that this second leg up, although...
