Go Small for Bigger Gains

The stock market is having another big risk-off trading day… 

This follows the prior day’s enthusiasm stemming from the series of excellent economic data and news, particularly for consumer spending and retail sales.

But even today, there are trades setting up for stocks that are bargains now with underpinnings of future positive business successes.

Specifically, we’re looking at US-focused smaller companies and their stocks. 

These are benefitting from the continued US economic gains and are more insulated from global strife.

The trade that we are looking at today is for the Russell 2000 Index (RTY) and its futures contract.

We are seeing a potential trading opportunity in the works, so read on…

Setting Up for a Small-Cap Gain

Here’s the daily RTY chart and the set up discussion…

The Russell 2000 Index (RTY) one hour time frame is in the buy zone making higher highs and higher lows. 

The market has an up Fibonacci with an extension price point 1,867.60, about +748 ticks above the market.

Entry: Counter trend line break bullish in the buy zone

As long as the market stays in the buy zone, it will be a good idea to turn to the five minute time frame and to look for Tunnel Trader long / Destination Trader long ideas.

The Bottom Line


While the stock market continues to gyrate, there are always stock trading opportunities for gains if you take the time to do the deep dive research to find what can and will work.

And smaller, US-centric companies may be one of them as presented above via our work on the RTY index.

In addition, digital currencies entered at the right levels may also provide potential further gain opportunities.
