What's the Trade?
Anyone that carried the Ultrashort plays into today should wait to buy more here until the plays move nicely above the opening print. I would leg into the plays slowly once that happens. If you're long, this morning's spike is another good opportunity to raise trailing stops as stocks rise.
A number of readers mentioned their stops were hit yesterday on long plays they had made some good coin in. I would not worry about missing today's rally at the start, and just be happy that you have practiced your discipline. You can not catch every rally or sell at the exact top, so don't waste any energy on it. Re-focus and get ready for the next opportunities.
