OPEX Trading Strategy | Crude Oil, Emini, Nasdaq, Gold & Euro



“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like hard work.”


Crude Oil is bearish and rotating down to the low of the range and prior week close, and my plan is to avoid the middle of the range by using traps and buyer-failures tomorrow morning…

E-Mini S&P is range-bound and trading in the middle of the range, telling me to stay patient and wait for buyers or sellers to try and breakout of the range so I can trade with failures going back into the range tomorrow morning…

Nasdaq is bearish and trying to re-test the weekly low, and I have my eyes on three (3) possible scenarios for Friday’s trading session…

Gold is bearish and trading sideways with a range, so my plan for tomorrow is to look for selling-opportunities using the '2-Try Rule' up around the range-highs…

Euro is bearish and trading in a triangle pattern, telling me to fade the breakouts up above the highs for selling-opportunities back down to the lows tomorrow…

We’re ready to wrap-up an awesome week of trading tomorrow morning, and I have a specific “end of week strategy” to teach you this evening…

Crude Oil is bullish with an eye on last week’s high, but three resistance levels are telling me I need to focus on buying as low as possible tomorrow morning…

E-Mini S&P is range-bound as two different sides of the market are about to collide, so my plan is to play both sides using failure patterns tomorrow morning…

Nasdaq is bearish but trading at the low of major bull channel, so my plan is to look for buying opportunities ONLY after I see the sellers try and fail twice tomorrow morning…

Euro is bearish and headed back into last week’s range, and my plan for tomorrow is to use a "hidden channel" for selling-opportunities on the way back down…
