full time traderReason to enter trade:

Futures were high in pre-market, but AAPL was in the red zone during pre-market. $DJI was dropping in the opening few minutes while AAPL was inching higher. It would be a put position if I were to trade. Then saw that AAPL was making a downtrend reversal in the 2nd candlestick bar of the session, confirmed by the signals. Opened the 2 contracts, and wanted to open more but was too late. The 2 contracts were already making money in blink of an eye. Profit target hit, but I took profit at the 1st red bar. If I held them till the 2nd bar, the put option price was $2.00, easily another $160 in profit. If only I held on another minute. Sigh..
