Ten Points Trading Nasdaq Futures

Ten points trading Nasdaq futures short this morning prior to the market opening.  The 180 minute was over-extended to the upside and all indications were that the market would move down prior to the opening.

Ten Points Trading Nasdaq Futures this Morning

Knowing that the Nasdaq 180-minute chart was overbought, I waited for the 12 minute and 45 minute ATRs to align.  After aligning (both were above price), I then waited for a retest of the ATR at 6330.80, which came after the magenta peak formed on the 45 minute chart.  Price tested the ATR but did not break it.  A reversal bar was forming so I entered short after confirming with the Stochastics, which aligned perfectly with price.

Price moved down to the congestion dot.  It was just a few minutes prior to the opening so I opted to lock in my profits because they love to spike the market in the opposite direction at the opening.  My job as a trader is to lock in profits and so I did.  It was a good thing I did because they reversed it at the opening.  (Click on image to expand.)
