Gap Fade - Caterpillar Inc. (Public, NYSE:CAT)

CAT gapped wide on earnings and immediately started to fade. Support from the rising 5 EMA initially looked promising, but price got stuck inside the second 15 min. stick. After NR7 completed, it started to look like a bearish h pattern was developing, so I shorted the break of NR7.

Took a partial at the 50% extension and rising 20 ema. I covered the balance as price crossed back above the 20 ema.

CNQ - Sell break of support as oil stocks finally succumb to some profit taking.
