There is a lot of fear in the world for this trade, but that is how price reached support.

What I like;

1) I have targted this buy for over a week.
2) I got the local DB I was wanting.
3) We may have witnessed volume exhaustion at the 92.30 area I was mentioning.
4) I have a 3 to 1 trade with 1% risk.
5) I have watched this market enough to believe this is probable.

I will add that I feel better at 2 contracts now that I have been trading heavier, and am really not even paying attention to this, typing my thoughts instead. My norm might be to take one off at 15, but not today.

I also waited for the reversal on the 6 range for my entry.
