Will buyers take over this market?

Good morning, Traders!

It’s now or never for the Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures market (NQ). The market is in an uptrend as it’s broken into the buy zone and hit a known level of U-turn. But if the buyers are going to take over the market and push it into a bullish rally, now is the time. If not, we need to prepare for the NQ to hit bearish territory.

Remember that the market trades in waves. So while the NQ is in an overall positive trend, we can expect the market to rise and fall as it works its way toward overall higher prices.

But if buyers back off and sellers take control, we could see the market fall into a bearish push. That means a selloff and lower prices.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that’s the end for the NQ. We can wait for the bearish push, if it happens, to settle down and rebound back bullish. When that happens, we’ll have lower prices to buy!

Ready to see what’s in store for the NQ today? Let’s get started:

Daily Timeframe Analysis

When looking at the daily timeframe for the NQ, we can see that the market is hovering just above that top trend line. If the market sinks any lower (below that line), we can expect the market to enter bearish territory (we could be looking at a sell-off). But if the market can stay above that, there’s a chance that buyers will control the market and push it higher.

Daily timeframe

The market will either stay above the trendline or drop into sell-off territory

This is a scenario that reveals how important it is to have properly drawn trendlines in your charts. Without them, you run the risk of getting inaccurate data and chart analyses that don’t do anything to help you make wise trading decisions!

One-Hour Timeframe Analysis

The one-hour timeframe for the NQ is at a critical point. Right now, the market is in the process of breaking the counter trendline. If the market can close above that line, there’s a good chance it will enter a bullish push. That means we could see a decent rally to a new high price!

One-hour timeframe

The one-hour timeframe has hit a critical point. If we continue to break the counter trendline, we could see a bullish rally

But if the market can’t push through the counter trendline, we could see a price slump as the market enters bearish territory. If that happens, we’re more likely to see a sell-off within the NQ.

The Bottom Line

Our timeframe charts will be critical in helping us see if buyers or sellers take control of the NQ. They allow us to see the patterns and trend shifts that happen across the market. Without them, it’d be challenging to see these changes.

The Bottom Line

Our timeframe charts will be critical in helping us see if buyers are sellers take over the NQ

And that’s why following my futures trading strategy can benefit you immensely. You’ll see when it’s profitable to enter a market and when it’s wise to stay away. Now’s the time to get on board if you’re ready to make smart trading decisions today. There’s no reason to keep putting it off!
