86 ticks

Reversal to 0.9779 – 0147 (47 min)
23 ticks

Notes: Very negative report showing a big loss of jobs lost compared to the forecast of a moderate gain, and an increase in the unemployment rate by 0.1%. This caused a spike downward of 70 ticks, crossing all three major SMAs near the origin, and the S1 line closer to the bottom. The :01 candle was able to hold its value and the :02 candle dropped another 11 ticks. It is common for this report to achieve a peak on a later candle, so it would be okay to wait it out. The :14 candle would be a great place to get out after seeing a large red candle. The reversal was slow and laborious yielding 23 ticks, but taking over 30 minutes.
