Buy Setup and Doji bar after 100% Retracement

Trading Strategy: Buy Setup and Doji bar after 100% Retracement. Although the daily chart of HOV is neutral, there are a few things making for a good reward-risk trade. After the stock collapsed in late June, it made a 100% retracement of the break down, which is bullish. Two days before it was a Buy Setup, with yesterday being a neutral doji bar. However, if this area holds, it will be a higher pivot low from the June low. Additionally, the sector showed relative strength today, and the hourly chart of HOV is a Buy Setup on the 20MA with above average volume. New high is not seeked; however, there is not much resistance until the $62 area on the hourly chart.
