2. Hot Market Report: Mini SP 500 folow up report from March 15th

By Joe Easton, Senior Broker

Click on image below to enlarge

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.

On the March 15th Newsletter we highlighted the ES market. Since then June E-Mini S&P has been in a solid uptrend. That week we closed over the 2824 resistance and after a small retracement has been up about 70 points, plus or minus $3500 per contract over the past three weeks. We are now approaching a new level of resistance around 2907-2917. If we cannot close this week or next above this level there could be reason for some long profit taking. If we do close over this level we can put our sights on the all time highs 2947.


ES is probably the most popular market for day traders. LARGE volume, liquidity and good ranges as well as being the first electronic Mini Stock Index contract in the US back in 1997, make the ES "the king for day-trading". One thing to understand is that the aggressive day-trading margins most firms, including Cannon, offer for markets such as the NQ and ES can be a double edge sword. With $500 day-trading margins, you as a trader control LARGE amounts of money and that can translate to large fast losses or gains in volatile manner. I urge you to create a self imposed margin that is higher. Be aware, be careful.

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.
