Two Attempts To Short
Using the prior day’s analysis that a short entry was low risk, the first attempt was long LABD 17.78, tight stop at the prior day’s low of 17.38 (not advice, not a recommendation).
As the chart shows, it did not take long to get stopped out and have LABD post a daily low of 17.37.
Immediately after the exit (within seconds), price action began to recover. The behaviour of this action gave the go-ahead to make a second entry.
After the second entry, price never came back. The stop on the position was changed to be the low of the day: 17.37 (not advice, not a recommendation)
