The markets gapped down, made minor headfakes to fill the gaps, then rolled. Finally had a day where 3 of the 4 Opening Range plays didn’t work, although we used the midpoint on the NQ OR as the stop to tighten it up. Bummer for the end of a great month. NASDAQ volume closed at 2 billion shares.

Net ticks: -43 ticks.
