Why lower prices are so helpful

Good morning, Traders!

The E-mini Russell 2000 (RTY) is giving us a bit of a bearish push as the market retraces to a lower price. But since the long-term direction is up, we can expect the market to U-turn and head back up toward the 2325.0 price point for our Fibonacci extension. That means we’ll have an opportunity to buy the market when it’s on its way back up!

This is the sort of situation we like to look for. The market is dropping to a lower price, but the long-term direction is still positive. That’s because markets move in waves. We’ll see the market drop in price and surge to new highs within the up trend. And we buy those low prices along the way. That’s the strategy behind making money in the futures market.

Now let’s take a look at the RTY’s timeframe analysis and get ready to trade!

One-Hour Timeframe Analysis

As we turn to the one-hour timeframe, we’ll see that the RTY is giving us a retracement (temporary price drop) within the chart. Remember that this can be a good thing when the long-term direction is up. As the price recovers, we’ll have an opportunity to buy at a low price as the RTY heads to the 2325.0 price point

One-hour timeframe

The RTY is giving us a nice retracement that we can take advantage of when the price begins to recover

The current RTY setup is an example of why it’s important not to let price dips make you nervous. So long as our overall long-term direction remains positive for the market, a retracement can put us in a position to buy at low prices before another bullish push. After all, that’s how we make money in trading!The Bottom Line

Though the short-term direction is down for the RTY, the long-term is still positive. That means we’ll want to watch our timeframe charts and keep an eye out for a turnaround in the RTY’s short-term direction.

When that happens, we’ll prepare our entry strategy and look for buying opportunities as the RTY sets up for another bullish push. We can expect the RTY to make movements toward a 2325.0 on its journey back to positive territory within the short-term.

The Bottom Line

The RTY is setting up to give us good buying opportunities as the short-term direction prepares to turn positive again

Keep On Trading,

Mindset Advantage: Greed

It’s never what you make that counts: it’s what you get to keep.

We hear the same story time and time again: the money gets made, the profits are amazing… and then it’s all given back to the harsh maiden of the market.

It’s not because the money isn’t there to be made. It’s often due to good old fashioned greed. Stops get pushed back. Targets get forgotten. That trade made $100… why not turn it into $500 or $1,000?

These are the traps that snare 95% of the profit. Take what the market gives you and go about your business. ‘Honor thy stop’ and your risk reward ratio. Don’t take that trade if you don’t feel good about it.

The ones you don’t take, or the ones that you end up stepping out of… those are the ones that keep you on the path to consistent profits!
