4 Successful Binary Options Trades on Futures

If you were following the TradersHelpDesk indicators this week, you would notice that a congestion area (an area where both the congestion dot and ATR are plotted at the same time) had formed on most of the futures including the Nasdaq, Dow, ES and Crude charts.  Then hidden divergence formed as price was making lower highs but higher highs in the stochastic indicator.  A great signal that the market would be going down.  By 6:30 am New York time, all the binary options trades on futures trades were opened.

Profit Targets Set for AllAll profit targets were filled with the exception of the US Tech 100 (NQ).  By 3pm New York time, it looked like it may pop up against me so I exited with only a $13 profit.
