1. Trading 202: Price-Driven Trade Ideas - the concept of Leading and Following Markets.

What they are and how you can benefit from them - FREE trial to an AI APP.

By BetterTrader.co Inc.

At any given time, there are a multitude of factors that impact the markets. They are constantly moving and changing. One way for traders to stay on top of this ever-shifting environment is with Leading and Following Markets.

The fundamental concept of this technology is to identify a market that typically moves in the direction of another market, thus identifying a “leading” and a “following” market. By investing in the “following” market, the trader is able to use the “leading” market as a better indicator of fluctuation than the chaotic markets at large.

Using this strategy can make the whole process seem less like a gamble.

2. Hot Market Report: Natural Gas - Colder weather brings out volatility

By Joe Easton, Senior Broker

NG futures;

This week’s highlighted Market is Natural Gas futures. Natural Gas is part of the energy sector along with its cousins, Crude Oil, RBOB - Unleaded gas and heating oil. All traded on the NYMEX/GLOBEX exchange.

Most Winters Natural Gas Futures wakes up from its slumber and provides volatility increasing risk and profit potential. Dubbed the “Widow-maker” Natural Gas has a history of making strong trends with little retrace opportunity to exit wrong sided positions. This week is another classic example in the litany. For December Natural Gas Futures, the trend turned after 2 weeks ago Thursday’s inventory report. We bounced off significant support at $2.296 ( based on the November Contract). . EIA reports often provide additional liquidity and opportunities for market reversals. In this case we haven’t looked back since. We have witnessed the three gaps “breakaway”, “runaway”, (also known as continuation) and “exhaustion gap”. The first being $.05 second being $.09 and lastly $.07 respectively. These gaps along with the intraday moves have taken the NG futures from $2.29 to a high of $2.90. This is a $.60 ($6000 per contract) move equivalent to a 30% jump in value! Since this recent high we have retraced some to $2.75, however I expect to make another move higher at least to $2.94 and possibly higher. Bulls want to hold $2.67- $2.71. For full disclosure, I bought a call out of the money with lots of time to give the market a chance to continue the uptrend. Contact your Broker and we can help implement a strategy together.
