Price action back UPSIDE after a pullback on Wednesday, crossover on Thursday downside and back upside on Friday. Talk about indecision in a market. Momentum continues downside as of Friday close.

IWM Average Daily Move: 2-3 for last week – Very low volume

Stocks: Look for increased volume at market open of at least 50% above norm for average three month volume in 5 minute increments. Recommend to run scan on watch-list (IBD 50, Q50) for price momentum.

…as always, ready in both directions, regardless of trading plan. When opportunity presents , wait for 2 bar confirmation crossover and use 5/34 EMA and 5/13/21/80 to stay in trend. Trading rules always a gold standard.


While I am a believer in simply trading the charts and what is in front of me from the market open, I will look for market trend based on the internals market wide and the market I am trading accordingly. No crystal balls or mirrors to tell you where the market is headed prior to the open, as I have no clue. Waiting on the 25m Open Range to set and subsequent 1 hour open range, with levels above and below I can manage my trade by removing contracts or re-entry based on contract size and look for the momentum move. My simple trading method by use of a combination of exponential moving averages limits my loss and times my precise entries regardless of where price action is. Either way, it’s all about patience and discipline. My trading plan is simply a cognitive exercise and reminder to always stick with my plan, regardless of which direction the market goes.
