Trade Rationale

Sometimes, I know well in advance what levels I am looking at before taking a trade. In all those cases, I post the levels as announcements in our group ahead of time. LMT was one of those cases. After an earnings beat, LMT sold off due to profit taking and I entered this trade based on 370 as the level of support.

Trade Selection Criteria

N/A – There is nothing drastic going on in the overall Market. ABNB has dropped on no material news

No Earnings or Significant News

This is a post earnings trade and earnings are behind us

N/A

RSI Analysis

This is a post-earnings trade. We use support/resistance for these as other indicators are mostly irrelevant for these kind of trades

ADX Analysis

Although, I use support/resistance for 90% of my post-earnings trades, in this case DI- is flattening out indicating a loss of downward pressure.

Trade Analysis

As with most mean reversion trades, this trade went against me slightly for a couple of days before reverting back and heading in my direction. Although, LMT is trading at $387 today, but I only needed it to be above $375 and I would have made my full profit.
