We’re headed back to the top!

We’ve seen some interesting movement across the entire market over the last few days. It’s had an impact on futures, but we’re seeing some good opportunities for profitable trades developing!

Today we’ll focus on the Russell 2000 futures index (RTY). Both the long-term and short-term directions are up. Right now, the daily timeframe has maintained the upward channel, meaning that support has held, and the market has started to U-turn toward a bullish rally.

Remember, we look for U-turns as a sign that a market is beginning to go back up in price, helping us make the decision to buy into the market.

If the trend holds, we’re looking at a +1500 tick upward movement in the RTY!

Let’s dive into the full timeframe analysis for the RTY…

When the price hits the Fibonacci limit, we could see a slight retracement (the price will drop). But this isn’t something to worry about. Remember that the market trades in waves, so we’ll see up and down movement as the market continues to move up.

The Bottom Line

That will give us more opportunities to buy when the price is low as it works its way up within the overall upward trend!

The Bottom Line

The overall direction for the RTY is up as the price has entered a bullish rally

This is the type of trade where we stand to make a comfortable profit, if we follow the right strategies and stick with our trade plan!

Keep On Trading,

Mindset Advantage: Accept

It’s not the market. It’s not your indicator. It’s TRADING.

Let it go. The first step toward consistent profits comes when you accept the reality that losses will occur. Prices have a mind of their own at times. The institutions are at the wheel. The sooner you accept this, the more progress you’ll make.

Look at the past, but don’t stare. Accept what’s happened and move on.
Target tighter entries. Get the heck out of those losers you’re hanging on to.

Accept. And start to enjoy trading.
