We’re headed into Friday morning’s Non-Farm Payroll Report with a handful of ranges, but the biggest clue I see are these “four legged moves”, which tell us exactly what to look for tomorrow morning.

Crude Oil is bullish into a trading-range, which tells me to look for buying opportunities below the range using seller-failure patterns.

Knowing this, I’m also looking for a potential breakout to new highs, which may be an easy buying opportunity ahead of the measured-move objective.

E-Mini S&P is bearish into a trading-range, which tells me to look for selling-opportunities up near the high of the range tomorrow morning.

However, I’m also keeping a close eye on the momentum shifting as price goes higher, which may tip us off to a possible bullish reversal after the news tomorrow morning.

Nasdaq is bearish with a strong two-legged run lower today, which tells me to look for selling-opportunities up near the high of a Hidden Channel.

Considering the strength of this move lower, I’m also looking for a possible “overshoot” of today’s low with potential buying opportunities going up off the bottom if the sellers fail to hold.

Gold is sideways and range-bound ahead of tomorrow’s big news report, which tells me to stay patient for buying opportunities below the lows and selling-opportunities above the highs.

Knowing this, I need to wait for a breakout of the range and then looking for ways of buying low and selling higher until we see a successful 123-Breakout.

Euro is bearish with four legs lower, which always alerts me to watch for a trading-range.

Furthermore, if we do see a trading-range the plan is quite simple; buy the low, sell the high, avoid the middle and use the ‘2-Try Rule’ to fade the breakouts.

Please remember that economic news, both scheduled and un-scheduled will increase volatility and decrease liquidity in the market in the short-term, which causes price-action to react inconsistently with the levels of support and resistance mentioned in this video. Trading during economic news reports is dangerous and highly discouraged, no matter what your level of experience.

Hi Joseph
Your Videos are the BEST !
Please help with one question – With stocks – if the price jumps past your stop / buy / sell order … you DON'T get stopped out and it can continue to run against you … Is this the same with FUTURES?

Thx again for your videos – You are truly a Master with Futures

Thank you so much Joseph! It’s always the 1st thing in the morning I watch before work.

Why are four legs so important? Because it alerts me to start looking for either a trading-range or a flag pattern. Once I see that pattern on the chart, I know precisely where the best entries and exits will be from there.
