How I Am Trading Energy: A Short Setup

Swing traders must have a basket of setups in order to trade consistently and successfully.  One of my favorite setups is the “rubber band” short setup.  $XLE is a good example of this setup.

Trade Report members were alerted to this trade when I made it and again when I took partial profits this morning on the gap down. The stop has been moved up, essentially making the rest of this trade a “free ride”.  My target now is a retest of the lows.
