You can’t afford to miss this trade

Good morning, Traders!

Last time, we discussed how waiting for the markets to get into a good buying position is one of the most important things we can do. Today, I’m happy to show you why that’s true! The Nasdaq 100 E-mini (NQ) is now in the buy zone and ready for us to prepare our entry strategy. 

The NQ held at support within the daily timeframe and is breaking bullish through our counter trendline. That means the market is pushing into the buy zone and is heading to a higher price within the up trend at 16072.25.

And the one-hour timeframe reveals that the NQ has already broken the counter trendline and is headed for the high limit of 15383.0.

This is an example of how counter trendline breaks signal us to get ready to execute our buy-in strategy and prepare to make money in the NQ!

Let’s jump into our full timeframe analysis to see where the NQ is headed and how we can leverage this opportunity for profit:

You need to breathe. Breathing exercises have proven to reduce stress and increase focus.

Sure, you’re already breathing if you read this. But when you trade… you need a breathing regimen. Whatever it is: Through your nose, out your mouth counting to 10 or 100. Find a method and routine that works for you.
