If your work schedule doesn't permit you to trade during the day, here's a trade that you can make almost every day on your lunch break. Many traders avoid  trading at lunchtime because there is just not much volume in the market. With Nadex Binary Options, the lunchtime "Caret" Trade allows you to take advantage of declining lunchtime volume on the S&P 500 Futures  market.

Quite often, after a busy morning session, volume on the S&P 500 has a tendency to start declining, usually after 10:00am EST. The market, which has been grinding upward hits resistance, and then starts forming an upside-down "V" pattern. I call it the "Caret" trade because it resembles the "^" symbol above the number 6 on your keyboard.

In today's lunchtime trade, the "Caret" trade is in play. The market started moving upward after 10:00am as volume declined. At noon, the market hit resistance on the Keltner Channel and the indicators on the Fisher Transformer were lined up overbought. A reversal Star candle signaled a potential reversal. Sure enough, it happened:

The market started to reverse with a strong SELL signal on the Fisher transformer. The following order was placed:

The Caret Trade

Vertical lines were plotted on the Nadex chart (above) denoting the 11am-1pm time frame. As you can see, the 2107.3 strike price chosen was well above the peak of the market, and when the market reversed it was time to kick back and enjoy lunch.

The trade settled in the money for full profit of $40 at 1:00pm, less $3.60 in exchange fees.
