Trade Rationale

BDX has been stuck in a squeeze ever since its earnings came out. You can clearly see it chopping up and down between $238 and $248 at this time. I entered this trade at the lower end of the trading range, which means I just need it to stay at or above $240, even if it doesn’t break out of the squeeze by expiration.

N/A

Trade Analysis

This turned out like a typical swing trade. Some of our traders asked me why I entered this trade when I usually avoid stocks which are in a squeeze (BBs inside KCs). The reason I avoid those trades is because stocks in a squeeze have a tight trading range and it is hard to profit from it. In this case, BDX had a $10 trading range and we entered the trade right at the bottom of the squeeze.
