Trading With Traps On Non-Farm Friday

Video Length: 00:43:14

We’re heading into Non-Farm Payrolls tomorrow morning, one of the biggest news events of the month, which means there should be plenty of trading opportunities to finish the week…

Looking at the charts, we have two important trading-ranges to pay attention to. There’s a major range acting like a price-magnet, and a minor range to help us time our entries with traps. Are you ready for Friday? 

E-Mini Keys to Success:

  • Sellers got short on all the pops today, eventually sending the market lower into a range with an overshoot at the low.
  • Bulls Want to use the pendulum swing going back to the weekend GAP.
  • Bears Want to retest today’s low and test the 3700 round number.

Best Setups for Tomorrow: 

  • [UP] – nested failure to sell (or) 123-breakout to buy
  • [DOWN] – 123-breakout to sell (or) crown reversal to buy
  • [SIDEWAYS] – sit on hands, wait to buy low and sell high.
