2. Hot Market Report: Stock Index Futures Sell Off Following Trump Twitt

By Joe Easton, Senior Broker

ES futures;

This week’s highlighted Market is mini SP 500 futures.Part of the stock index family that includes mini NASDAQ 100, mini Russell, mini Dow, Mid cap, Nikkei and a few more. Most traded on the CME/CBOT/GLOBEX exchanges.

Crude has found its new range, after seeing prices in the 70's ranges followed by a drop down into the 40’s Crude has settled between the price of 50 and 60 and seems to be relative stable and comfortable in that zone. Resistances in both ways seem fairly strong due to a slight calm down on government and OPEC news and price has settled in the range between $54 and 60 with a sideways trend recently. Unless we have fresh news coming on the Geo Political front, I see Crude trading in the 54-60 range for the next few weeks. Which will break first: Resistance or Support? I personally believe the tendency for a breakout to the upside is slightly bigger since if we look at the overall trend since beginning of this year we are still in a “up” trend . Chart analysis shows a rough draft of a slight unclear W formation which could signalize a trend to the upside. Although there are a few uncertainties to it, we are talking about a market that is known for its volatility and if we gain more movement back after this sideways trend we can definitely go both ways. This chart was prepared using our FREE platform, E-Futures Int'l, availablefor 28 days DEMO with real-time data.

Mini SP 500 is one of my favorite markets for Day Trading because of the intraday range and movements. Be careful, these factors can work against you or in your favor.
Some of the basic fundamentals to keep in mind when you are considering trading the NQ or other indices for this matter:
1. Longer term view of current market prices
2. Dates and times of important reports. CPI, Housing, employment, FOMC are just some of the reports you need to watch for
3. Earning reports
4. U.S. Fiscal and Monetary Stability

Our brokers here at Cannon will be happy to chat about the MINI SP500 market, other indices, other futures, options, futures spreads and much more! Feel free to contact us at any time.
