    Reversed CLVS for a quick bounce trade for almost 3 1/2 pts going long just above the top of that Sept 7/8 gap. Considered letting it run with a tight trailing stop but decided to just close it about half-way back into today’s gap.. darn thing just might want to backfill the entire gap, maybe not today but overnight risk is just too high in CLVS right now so I went flat & probably won’t trade it again.

    Congrats Nick. I’m glad that I noticed it in pre-market & was able to get that heads-up post out. I have a mosaic of streaming charts showing the pre-market trades on numerous stocks, sector & broad market etfs, futures contracts, etc… up on one of my monitors that I check every day well before the market opens but didn’t have a chart up for CLVS. I only noticed the big move when I was reviewing the positions in my trading account & noticed an unusually large pre-market gain for the account (largely attributed to CLVS). Had I not noticed that, I might not have been aware of the gap until shortly after the open. Glad you were able to exit at a good price before the reversal.
