Friday was a pretty wild day. Following the enormous move up after-hours on Thursday with earnings, the entire move was retraced on an incredible hot NFP. Fortunately, we were prepared for this eventuality and this was shared in the free preview section of Thursday night’s post:
A number of interesting divergences took place on that move higher that left me suspicious of the initial move. We consolidated overnight but price then did indeed liquidate on NFP to back test 4928 and open essentially flat, before ripping higher nearly 70 handles off the back test.
