Buy the lower open should be your game plan for the day. Economic numbers aside, its the correct play in a bull market.
There will be days when you do the right thing and lose money, you can’t focus on the one or two days you don’t get follow-through.
We are after probabilities over the long-term, not trade-by-trade or day-by-day. Today’s best plays will be strong stocks with a weak close yesterday.
Look for a spot around yesterday’s low to bid or an inside day breakout. Day traders have been frustrated the last few weeks but if you were patient and didn’t over-trade, you should have earned net profits for the week yesterday. There was a lot of clean follow-through.
There are plenty to choose from below.
Stock Market Indecision: Map of the S&P 500
Day Trading Game Plan: The SPY
SPY finally broke the pattern of indecision on good volume. A clean dollar of trading profits on the short side once it closed below the open price. The correct trade is to buy the lower open @ $209.75
