I was busy writing a post and didn't see E-House Holdings (EJ) fall right to support; should of had a limit order waiting there near $20.50. Instead we will pay up a bit here around $21.10 and get the position we sold off earlier in the week back. The position size is similar to what we let go, about a 1.5% allocation and as mentioned earlier today this is a very simple set up from a technical perspective - the 50 day moving average sits below us and we'll stop out a good portion of this position on any break below it.
