Think Like A Pro Trader
Crude Oil is bearish with three legs lower, which usually means we’re going sideways the following trading day.
Trade The Market’s Mindset
Crude Oil is sideways and trading in the middle of last Friday’s trading-range, which reminds me to avoid the middle, buy the low, and sell the high.
Check This Before You Enter
Markets have their eyes on key levels from earlier this week, but with such strong runs this afternoon, we better choose our entries and exits wisely on Thursday.
Don’t Let ‘Em Fool You!
Crude Oil is bearish with a strong run lower off today’s high, but don’t let them fool you into selling the next pullback because we’re sitting right at the low of last week’s range.
Two Big Clues For Friday
Crude Oil is bullish and almost back to the middle of this week’s trading range, which tells me to stay patient and wait for the opportunity to buy below the range using the classic seller-failure entry set-up.
FV Finding The Best S/R Levels
Crude Oil is bullish into a small trading-range this evening, which tells me the best support and resistance levels for tomorrow will be using the “expansions” of the trading-range, along with the low of the Hidden Channel.
The Rule Of Three
The FOMC Announcement is behind us this evening, but that doesn’t mean we’re finished with today’s price-action – because tomorrow is “Reaction Thursday” – where the professional traders get back into the markets with confidence.
Trading With “Failed” Failures
With big news coming overnight, combined with range-bound markets, my focus will be trading those “failed failure” set-ups. I'll be covering crude oil, S&P, Nasdaq, gold and finish up on the mighty Euro. Expect increased volatility tomorrow.
Trading The “Sweet Spot”
Markets are still using the same ranges from earlier this week, but with some strong moves lower today, the focus will be on momentum and how price responds to the moving-average. In this video I'll cover oil, S&P, Nasdaq, gold and Euro.
Trading The “Pain Point”
Crude Oil is bullish with a Spike & Range pattern, telling me to look for buying opportunities using seller-failures down below the low of the range.
Harness The Momentum
Crude Oil is bearish, but this short-covering rally coming off the measured-move tells me that I need to respect the bullish momentum before I try selling at key resistance levels overhead.
More Important Than Entry Pattern
Crude Oil is bearish with a strong run lower, which tells me to look for selling-opportunities at the high of a channel.
"Super Wednesday" Trading Strategy
Crude Oil is bearish into a trading-range, which tells me to look for selling-opportunities above the range, using the “range expansion” levels as key resistance.
Pullback Or Trend Reversal?
Crude Oil is bullish with a strong run higher, a 2-legged pullback, and a re-test of the high.
First Thing I Look For
Crude Oil is bullish with a strong move higher into the measured-move objective, which isn’t a great place to look for buy set-ups, so I’m waiting patiently for a pullback to the low of a new Hidden Channel for more reliable opportunities.
Finish Line Trading Strategy
Crude Oil is bullish with a strong bull run, but with price testing a TRIPLE measured-move on the chart, it’s probably NOT a great idea to start buying into this “finish line” for the buyers.
