How to Balance the Long-Term With the Short-Term

Good morning, Daily Direction readers!

Today, we’re taking a look at the Nasdaq 100 E-mini futures market (NQ) as we continue to watch some very interesting developments in the markets.

We all know that investors on Wall Street are keeping a close eye on the news cycle with everything that’s happening in Europe right now. That’s why sticking to our strategy and monitoring our timeframe charts is of the utmost importance as everything unfolds.

The long-term direction remains up for the Nasdaq, but the short-term direction is currently down. The market is moving closer to our down Fibonacci price point, where it should push back into the buy zone. All we have to do is wait.

While that may be frustrating, we can remain confident that our trading strategy will guide us and keep us on the path of making wise decisions.

And as we talk about making wise trading decisions, now’s the time to take your trading endeavors to the next level. Don’t miss what my colleague Ross Givens has to offer right now.

He’ll show you how to potentially profit from tomorrow’s “Stealth Trade” and multiply your money in the coming days and weeks. And this offer is crazy good! Please don’t miss out. Check it out here!

And with that, let’s dive into the current timeframe analysis for the NQ:

Daily Timeframe Analysis

As you can see in our timeframe chart, the market is headed for our down Fibonacci of 12282.5. Once the NQ hit’s that point, we expect it to push up above the current trendline and into the buy zone.

As that happens, we can look for long opportunities within the market.

In the meantime, we’ll study the data and watch our timeframe charts as the market continues to move.

Given the current situation, we don’t want to miss any movements in the market.

That’s why funneling all of the information we get through our analysis is important. It keeps us focused and discourages us from making decisions based on emotion.

Mindset Advantage: Better Today

Look forward and forget the past. At least for today. Adopt the mantra: Better today than yesterday. Better tomorrow than we are today.

The journey to consistent profits is not built with a trade or a single session. We all know this… but then we proceed to hold positions longer than we should, move stops that we shouldn’t, and trade outside our plan.

How about one day at a time?

Start with today. Tomorrow comes later.
