    Hey Matt,

    Love these videos man, they are so helpful, especially to see you do the order entry in TOS. That software seems really complex to a beginner. Quick question, do you set the exit orders as GTC also in a shorting position?

    hey Matt
    1. I am not too familiar with the Fibonacci extension thing you were talking about, any links you can provide that explain this?
    2. Normally in order to calculate the Target price on a short stock entry order you would simply do: resistance minus PAY correct? (Just like in order to calculate the Target for the long stock entry order you did: support + PAY)

    1. CODYMAKI says:

      Fibonacci extension https://youtu.be/Zusv7D5IAbQ
      Yes, Support plus PAY is your target.

    just to be clear, on a bullish trade, the target is support + PAY, on a bearish trade the target is resistance MINUS PAY, is that right?
