$GOOGL – The stock fell 4.95% during market hours but was up 0.69% after hours. During Tuesday’s trading sessions, GOOGL gapped down from SNAP CEO’s comments which pulled NQ down overall, nearing my first buy zone at 2000. On the daily timeframe, GOOGL dip was bought up quickly and closed a strong dragonfly doji with a gap to be filled from 2129 to 2174. Lots of ITM, 2050C weekly expirations came in, which can indicate a big move this week. Keep an eye on the 2144 or backtest 2115 level, if GOOGL can break above with volume, it can start to gap-fill to 2168 to 2174 level resistance. Above that can test 2188-2200. Above 2200, it can test 2220 (near 9DMA) to 2235 resistance. Consider puts if GOOGL fails to hold above the 2215 level, as it can pull back down to 2100-2090.
