It's important to note that this strategy does not work this well every single time. The market is fickle, what works today might not work tomorrow. All we can do is use the tools we have in front of us in this constant battle. My favorite free tools are Darvas Boxes, moving averages, MACD and a few premium indicators I have paid for.
 
Thursday, February 27th I was able to short the market for around $6000 in a few hours. This is what I looked for. I wanted momentum to show me a down shift, which it did last Thursday the 20th as it broke below the "0" mark on the MACD. I also wanted to get below the 100 moving average followed or confirmed by the 13 moving average crossing below the 48 moving average, which it did last Thursday. It has held these conditions for the entire week which is obviously great confirmation.
So, with this set up and a consistent drop in the market over the last week I waited for a pop up in both the MACD and the moving averages, when I got that pop I decided to short the market again. I waited for this pop because It's very hard to pick a top or a bottom so if I can get confirmation of a failure or push I will play those all day long.
 
At around 10:45AM EST I got the pop I wanted, followed by about 1.5 hours of accumulation and rejection of the 100 day moving average. My cue to short the market again was the break back down of the MACD back below the "0 line" and a confirmed rejection of the 100 day MA around 1:00PM EST. I started my short at 8736.  I closed it out to lock in my profit at 8401 (yes right before the next major drop). 
 
It sounds so simple, but it works 100% of the time ... until it doesn't anymore.
 
 
This simple move netted me over $6000 on 1 contract of the Nasdaq Futures $/NQ
This is a good day trade strategy for futures, stocks and options. With options you need to be careful of decay though so you want a larger move to counter the Theta burn.
