OJ is usually a rather quiet market. We have seen this market quietly move up to and through 2.00. This market is thinly traded and has a tendency to pullback after hitting new highs. On the longer term charts you can see that we have just hit very significant long term resistance. This should prove to hold this market back in the near term. This trade is designed to catch a move lower based on this overhead resistance while keeping risks in check.
