Fortunately I don’t sit at the computer all day looking for a trade, but now and then that can cost you money. The post above tells the story.

OUTR dropped from 58.00 to 40.55 in three minutes. 40.75 was support. Unfortunately, I missed it.

I did buy small at 44.11 and added some more this morning at 45.10.

Support levels are 40.75, 38.90 and 37.50.

Initial target is 49.25 and then 56.00.
