A small winner that hit the first target on the NQ. Nothing else triggered, and we went ours without even hitting a Level to start.
Net ticks: +2 ticks.
As usual, let’s start by taking a look at the ES and NQ with our market directional lines, VWAP, and Comber on the 5-minute chart from today’s session:
Just a reminder that we use half points for ticks on the NQ and not the quarter point measurement that the exchanges switched to in recent years. This allows us to use 6 ticks as a key target as we do on the other contracts. It also keeps the value of a tick at $10, closer to the value of a tick on the other contracts.
Triggered short at A at 3016.50, hit first target for 6 ticks, stopped second half at 3017.50:
