IWM (TZA) Analysis: 11/4/13

|Includes:Direxion Daily Small Cap Bear 3x Shares ETF (TZA)

Friday's report indicated that as a result of the heavy volume at support, the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEARCA:IWM), may move higher instead of breaking lower as anticipated

Conversely the Direxion Russell 2000 Bearish 3X ETF (NYSEARCA:TZA), would proceed lower instead of higher.

After it became apparent during today's session that the buying pressure in IWM was greater than the selling, we made our exit.

This exit was executed before our established stop in TZA was hit. The original stop location (at 20.23) was contacted later in the session.

If we can determine that the trade is not going to cooperate and still get out even or with a profit, then we are pleased with the execution.
