from the 1411.25 short the 1416 area is a good place to leverage up -remember you need to build 1 con per point for con traded -thus if 1 con was traded at 1411.25 you will need to add 5 at the 1416 level -

1 con @ 1411.25

5 con @ 1415.75

6 con total with a 1415 ave for the short

thus when 1415 is hit you can leverage back down giving you 1 at 1415.75 -

trade has been reduced by 1/2 - will let the last 1/2 run and see what happens - took approx 30 ticks of total profit from 3 contracts -will use the 30 ticks as stop protection for a break even trade -

thus if we go 10 ticks above our 2nd entry of 1415.75 we will exit the trade(1418.25)

we are using a standard fib set from 1417.75 to 1390 - we used 1412 as our 1/2 off basis for protection -now as we near the 1407.50 fib -any where in this area is a good 1 con exit - we used 1408.75 giving us 7 points of profit on 1 contract from our 1415.75 entry - next exit zone will be 1401 -but we will also reset our stop to breakeven at 1415.75 for the final 2 cons
