Lumber Futures & Timber Sector Analysis

Lumber futures (/LB) look to be headed back down to the 540 & 531.50 levels in the coming days to weeks as indicated on this 60-minute chart below. LB 60-min April 23rd Looking at the bigger picture via this daily chart of WOOD (Timber & Forestry Index ETF), the timber & forestry sector appears poised for at least a 14% correction off last week's highs & a drop of as much as 22% in the coming weeks to months. I plan to zero in on some price targets for WOOD & will likely add it as an official trade [...]

QQQ & /NQ Analysis & Price Targets

Nasdaq 100 E-mini futures (/NQ) just kissed the 6660.33 support level, so far bouncing. Should NQ take another thrust down to test or slight undercut of the 6645.60ish support & reverse, it will have put in bullish divergences on this 15-minute time frame, offering an objective long entry for a swing trade with targets around 6705 & 6743. That would be my alternative scenario (white) with my preferred scenario being that the pullback shortly after the open will be the low for the day & possibly the week with the $NDX rallying from there (orange). My comparable price target on QQQ [...]

GBTC & Bitcoin Futures Targets Hit, Pullback Likely

/GXBT (Bitcoin Futures) are approaching the 9082 resistance level with negative divergences in place on this 60-min time frame which increases the odds of a pullback soon while GBTC (Bitcoin Investment Trust), both unofficial trade ideas, has gapped about my 15.00 price target, trading as high as 15.50 shortly after the open today & at 15.43 at this time. GXBT 60-min April 23rd click to expand image, then use scroll-wheel or touchpad to pan & zoom or pinch-zoom on mobile My expectation is for a relatively minor pullback to about the 8600 to 8450 level on /GXBT which may [...]

QQQ Poised to Reverse & Rally Into the Close

QQQ looks primed for a nice rally in the final 30 minutes of trading today with an objective long entry here with a stop somewhat below for a potential day trading opp for aggressive/active traders. The 60-min PPO signal line (an intermediate-term trend indicator) is still bullish, testing the zero level now while QQQ falls to the key 161.66ish support level & /NQ (Nasdaq 100 Emini futures) also fall to key support. Unofficial trade idea only. Another options is a hybrid swing/day trade where a day trade (over-sized) position is taken here, closing the bulk out before the close, [...]
