Stepped out way too early on this one. I was not comfortable with getting in so far from my preferred entry point and don't put as much weight in countertrend moves, but I left at least another 80 ticks on the table today.

The market took out the previous double bottom;



Found volume support after blowing the stops;



And showed a trend reversal.

I closed this trade for another 60 ticks even. Two trades today, one short after blowing stops above the market, and one long after blowing stops below the market. Total 114 ticks for the day.

Stops overhead blew, then we see selling volume. I am watching for a reversal. No trigger yet.

Remember not to consider a trade without a trend reversal. As of this moment, the trend on the 9 range is definately up.

This is the areas where sellers will come in, if they are going to reverse. The large sellers rely on the heavy volume of stops blowing, which just occured above the green line of the most recent pivot. The RSP is still intact.
