In this morning’s AM Meeting I discussed a recent shift in my approach to trading momentum stocks as we have seen signs that bottoms are forming. In the second half of the video I share my intra-day trading plan for YELP: where it made sense to get long based on recent price action as well as a potential failure area to initiate shorts.

By carefully studying price action we are able to formulate trading plans with favorable risk/reward ratios which greatly increases our margin for error. Pay close attention to the video and then compare it to YELP’s actual trading pattern for the day.
