The bulls are fighting back against the bears as the new week begins…
After closing below the June lows last Friday, the Nasdaq 100 (NQ) futures market is bouncing back today by 1.6%.
Stocks are up across the board, but it’s important to remember that this market is still firmly in a down trend.
Therefore, we are still on the lookout for a high price where the risk to reward for a downside trade will be in our favor…
Put The Odds In Your Favor
Here’s how we see the market shaping up for the Nasdaq 100 Index futures contract…
The NQ daily time frame is in a down channel. The market is making lower lows and lower highs.
The market has hit a down Fibonacci extension price point 11,571.00 but has yet to form a low price.
It will be a good idea to stay out of the market until the market pulls back and forms a high price giving the opportunity to look for the next short.
At this time, it is better to be out of the market wishing to be in, than to be in the market wishing to be out.
