Some Quick Intra-Day Trading Setups – R2000 Short

August 26, 2011 1:29 pm

Here is the skinny: There is a good deal of short-covering today. Of course buyers are excited that the green lights are shining on the board, but let’s also realize that the levels today are simply a return of what was lost yesterday.

With the market consolidating, there may be some opportunity to benefit from the volatility.

Specifically referring to the Russell 2000, here is a quick idea.

A Short (use your favorite ETF) near the 690 level of the R2000 appears to be a way to use the upper end of the price-at-volume chart to your advantage. If the R2000 breaks above 692 with conviction (cover the trade) – there are a few levels of resistance on daily and 30 minute charts at 697.

Notice that there is a good deal of resistance at 697. That is another point that has a higher probability of a stall.



Just some thoughts as markets are moving quickly and there is a good deal of volatility range to enjoy.
