Fourth Trade this Year – Up

I finally closed out of my ETF Extremes trade today for no loss/gain. QQQQ gapped up at the open so I decided to exit the trade given the short-term overbought state the Q’s have entered. Furthermore, the Wilder RSI (2) in the tech-heavy index has pushed into an extreme state with a reading of 97.6 while at a level of strong overhead resistance. Couple all of the aforementioned and the probability of a short-term reprieve has increased significantly.

Of course, there are no guarantees in trading, but when the probability of a certain move (this time to the downside) increases dramatically I must, as a trader, seriously consider a position. Remember, as a trader, all we have are probabilities.

So, with that being said I decided to place a trade on Collective2. You can check out the strategy at the following link: http://etfextremes.collective2.com
