Netflix is nearing a pivot point

Long
NASDAQ:NFLX   NETFLIX INC
Hey traders, so Netflix NASDAQ:NFLX has been dropping the last 6 sessions and has fallen into one of my favorite areas for catching a pivot trade. Basically, the strategy here is to wait for Netflix to pop above the lower Keltner channel after being in between the lower Keltner and Bollinger bands before taking any long trades. Price still could move towards the lower Bollinger Band , so we need to be patient and not rush into a bullish trade, unless you are ok with having some drawdown, which I am not. I trade options, so I try to wait as long as possible before the pivot happens because theta decay eats up the long call position if I get in too early. If you are buying the stock, the passing of time will not hurt your stock position. On my trading platform, I wrote an indicator that automatically plots cyan dots whenever price is between the lower Bollinger Bands and Keltner channel, and then it plots a white dot once price crosses above the lower Keltner channel. I manually drew an example of what that looks like on the chart above.

So now that you know what I am waiting for, I'll tell you a couple of things about this strategy. Sometimes, the move I am waiting for ends up happening in between sessions. For example, if tomorrow NFLX gaps up and opens near the upper Keltner Channel, I wouldn't take the trade because the move I was hoping to capture with the long call already happened. I am looking to ride the long call as the stock steadily moves itself across the Keltner channel until it reaches the upper Keltner or Bollinger band .

Another thing that could happen, is price could fall past the lower Bollinger band . If that happens, it invalidates the trade (at least for me it does) and I would wait for the price to come back between the lower Bollinger band and Keltner channel so that I'll be ready to try again it crosses above the lower Keltner channel at that time.

Note for Options Traders: I usually try to buy calls with this setup, but I almost always experience a period of sideways movement which end up hurting the long call. To avoid the negative effects of theta decay, you can substitute the long call with a put credit spread since put credit spreads benefit from theta decay making them cheaper to buy back.
Comment: Hey, all... remember, this strategy is still in the setup phase. I look for NFLX to close in between the lower Bollinger band and lower keltner channel band. I will post a follow up trading view article when if that happens.
Comment: Remember that sideways movement I cautioned about? NFLX is showing that. The closing price has remained near the same area for the last 5 trading days!
Comment: NFLX closed above the lower Keltner Channel today. Will be updating in a new post.
