Is a Win in the Works for Small Stocks?

Good Monday, Traders!

We are seeing some of the biggest trading opportunities for the trading day and potentially for the week in small US stocks.

Small stocks tend to be outside of global turmoil, including the ongoing Ukraine conflict, and are focused on capitalizing on domestic US economic growth.

We track and trade US small stocks via the Russell 2000 Index and its corresponding futures contracts on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) under the core contract trading symbol RTY.

Today, we see that our research in the RTY contracts makes it one of our best trade ideas for the day and week. 

And as such, we have just posted our idea for global review on TradingView right here!

The Trade Setup

Here’s how we see the trading chart for the RTY contract via TradingView…

And here is how we see the chart above for the RTY futures contract setting up the trade idea…

The RTY futures contract one hour time frame is in a large sideways range. The market is at the bottom of the range. The market is below the short term downtrend line. It will be a good idea to wait for the market to break and close above the short term downtrend line before looking for long ideas.

Entry: Counter trend line break bullish above the bottom of the sideways range.

Stop: In the sell zone, below the low that formed at the bottom of the range.

Limit: 2,055.70, once or if the market closes above the short-term downtrend line.

As long as the market stays above the bottom of the range, it will be a good idea to turn to the five minute time frame and look for Tunnel Trader long / Destination Trader long ideas towards 2,055.70.
