Nasdaq 100 Ready for a U-Turn?

Welcome to Monday, Daily Direction readers!

Today’s stock markets are in a risk-on mode at least for now. In particular, technology stocks are leading traders’ buying. 

This is helping to drive a turnaround in the Nasdaq 100 Index, which is highly weighted with leading US technology stocks.

This is now setting up a trade for this week in the Nasdaq 100 Index e-mini futures contract. The price is now in the buy zone at a known level of U-turn. 

And it also has an upward Fibonacci price level with an extension point that traders should be paying attention to for a great trade opportunity this week.

Here’s the chart showing the trade set up…

The NQ daily time frame is in an up-trend making higher highs and higher lows. The market is in the buy zone at a low price near a known level of a U-turn. 

The market also has an up Fibonacci level in the making with an extension price point 16,706.25, about +7,110 ticks above the market. 

It will be a good idea to turn to the one hour time frame and to look for low prices in the buy zone.

In the following video, we go through how they work and why they work. And we encourage you to watch this brief tutorial, as it will help you to understand the setup in the Nasdaq 100 stock index futures contract above.
