With each stock’s recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early. ETF calls do not require market support, and are thus either winners or losers.

In total, that’s 7 trades triggering with market support, 3 of them worked, 3 did not, 1 didn’t do anything. No surprise on a day where the market was stuck.
