Technical analysis

Let’s get straight to the point and look at what the Dow is doing. At the moment, price has found a substantial amount of support between $32,000 and $33,000. I have made the chart clear to show just the candlestick patterns because that is the primary driver we are going to be using to initiate long positions.

The trade

The trade is a simple one. It has a high probability of success because of the strong bullish candlesticks and price actions that refuse to let price drop below $31,500. We can hold stops below or around that level, with targets set at $34,2007, which is the high of the range that YM initially dropped below.

No setup is perfect, and we must never expect them to work out exactly how we plan. In fact, it’s important to understand that all we can do is find the best setups. Once the position is taken, we cannot do anything, and so there is no point in waiting and worrying.

The control must be given up and left in the hands of the market.

Announcement about trader mindset

Soon, we will be launching something called ‘trader mindset.’ It’s a series of 1 on 1 sessions traders can book to have with Jay.
