Good morning, Daily Direction readers!
Waiting for a market to get into the right position so we can buy it can be frustrating. But patience pays off!
That’s why we’re keeping a close eye on the E-mini Russell 2000 (RTY) market as it gets closer to moving into the buy zone.
Right now, it’s just on the cusp of breaking the down trendline in our one-hour timeframe chart. Once the market can close above that line and stay there, we’ll look for signs of a bullish push and prepare to buy the market.
Trendlines are important because they give us an idea of a market’s overall direction, both in the long-term and short-term. If a market breaks a trendline, we know that a direction shift is happening.
For the RTY, the market is ready to push into the buy zone and give us an opportunity to execute our buy-in strategy. Then we’ll work toward making profitable trades in the RTY!
Now let’s look at our timeframe analysis to get a clearer picture of what the RTY is doing:
One-Hour Timeframe Analysis
A quick look at the one-hour timeframe for the RTY shows the market barely edging above the trendline but not entirely closing within the buy zone. If the market can stay above the trendline, we’ll start looking for signs that the market is pushing bullish through the buy zone.
But we don’t want to act until that happens. Just because a market is close to meeting our requirements for buying doesn’t mean we should jump in right now. Our patience will pay off. Once the RTY is in the buy zone, we’ll act accordingly.
By following our strategy as strictly as possible, we increase our chances of making good trades that earn us money. It doesn’t make sense for us to abandon everything because we’re tired of waiting!
As soon as we see our indicators telling us the RTY is in the buy zone, we’ll follow the one-hour timeframe and look for a chance to buy the market as it moves to higher prices.

The Bottom Line
We’re almost at the point where we can jump into the RTY market. But we need to wait until the market is in the right spot on our charts before we dive in and buy it.
By keeping our emotions in check, we stand a better chance of making wise trading decisions. We can’t let anticipation or excitement cloud our judgment. We’ll make the trade when the moment is right.
