I reacted right away to a mistake of letting go an excellent position. Managed to enter in short 1,000 shares at $76.9201017. I guess I will just have to wait. It would appear that my original guesses of how levels work regardless of earnings seems to be correct. If it's hitting resistance, it will reverse no matter the earnings result.
I've been patient today, I wanted to exit at times, wanted to re-enter at other times. But I didn't. I did realise that I'm not good at exiting. So I will need to figure this out.
