This trade recommendation is setting up quickly and requires prompt attention
This is a short term trade. With the Daily Pivot Range (blue dots) tightly aligned with the similarly tight 3 Day Rolling Pivot Range (RPR) (green dots), the bias is strongly to the upside and therefore this level is key support.
The Daily Pivot Moving Averages are turning upward and are mildly bullish.
The action to take is to place a buy order to enter the market long if the market trades at or above the green ‘A’ up line for at least 15 consecutive minutes. Check your short term and/or 5 minute chart to verify. Place the stop loss at the Opening Range low and the profit target stated below.
Note: If triggered, look for the trade to play out over a period of 24-36 hours and if no significant move after 3 hours, exit the trade. Keep in mind the 3 hours is not a rule but a guideline as you will want to use discretion when managing the trade. One option is to move your stop loss up to breakeven (entry price) if the trade is triggered and the market moves up but then stalls and goes sideways.
Entry Price: 869.25
Stop Loss: 845.00
Profit Targets: First profit target 897.00. Second profit target 924.00. Once price reaches the first profit target raise the stop loss to breakeven.
