I shared this because it moved above INTU into the #1 spot on SMB Radar “weak today”, while it was also #4 for “in play”. Stocks that appear across the top of multiple lists in the SMB Radar usually offer the best risk/rewards setups.

A quick look the daily chart shows the next possible support area which had been resistance

if a stock drops extremely quickly to a target area on huge volume best to get flat. The other factor that caused me to cover the entire position was my belief that funds who were short the stock would press it below the weekly low causing many stops to be triggered and once those stops had been filled it could quickly bounce back.
