We saw some BIG RUNS in today’s session, but it looks like a few of these markets have reversed momentum, which usually means there will be opportunities to “trap” the trend-followers on the wrong side tomorrow morning.

Crude Oil is bearish after the buyers failed to hold the pullback, but I’ll bet we’re still going to see a few bulls trying to force this higher, and if we do, I’m looking to “trap” them on the wrong side of the market tomorrow morning.

E-Mini S&P is bullish with a Spike & Range pattern, which tells me to use the trading-range to find reliable support levels to buy with on Wednesday.

Nasdaq is bullish with a Spike & Channel pattern, which tells me to look for “bear traps” down below the swing-lows on the chart tomorrow.

Gold is range-bound with a triangle pattern, which means I’m looking for opportunities to fade the breakouts on Wednesday using the ‘2-Try Rule’.

Euro is bullish with a strong move higher, and I’m waiting for either a deep pullback or an aggressive 2-Try Failure if we go higher.

Economic News:
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.

Joseph James says:

Why are traps such an important part of my trading strategy? Because they're one of the most effective entry patterns when a market reverses direction and you dont want to chase the move higher/lower. Not to mention, traps are single best entry pattern for buying low and selling high. The funny part is, most rookies are the victim of traps until they finally learn how to be the one doing the trapping!
