- We usually avoid taking a position if there is big gap-up or gap-down.
- If there is a gap-up or gap-down then if in the first half hour there is a snap-back or pull-back to our original entry then we take that unless the price ran away too much and then snapped-back or pulled-back
- If there is no snap-back or pull-back in the first thirty minute then we wait for the ORB (Opening Range Break - a break above or below the first thirty minute candle - in the original trade direction
- If the entry is based upon the ORB then the stop is usually beyond the other end of the bar.
- Remember to position size based upon your risk-tolerance
