HSIC Bounces Resistance/Support

NASDAQ:HSIC   Henry Schein, Inc.
This morning, the first trading day of 2023, I ran my S&P 500 spike scan like every morning. The spikes were skewed heavily to the bearish side with 99 Bearish Spikes and only 1 Bullish Spike. That spike was HSIC HSIC . I like the context of this price action happening at the 50% Retracement of the bear move from the All Time High down to the October Low. Price recaptured and broke above the 78.72 Retracement Level and has now pulled back to test it as Support.

The 30m timeframe on Tradingview does not show the spike but the low of this morning's open was 78.70. This low can define the low risk for a 30 minute timeframe entry to play the broader move on the Daily timeframe to retest the ATH.

Trade active:

Price hit the 3 to 1 target today. Shaving off most of the initial position and leaving some on for covered call positioning when IV is favorably high. First win of 2023!

The initial take profit passed and I left on shares through the January trend. Now with earnings approaching and IV elevated I hedged with March 95 Covered Calls.
