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.

From the report, EXEL gapped over, no play.

There were a lot of other calls that didn’t trigger.

A strange day with a lot of calls triggering without market support, many of them working great, but they don’t count toward our totals.

In total, that’s 5 trades triggering with market support, 3 of them worked, 2 did not.
