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.

Daily Chart of ES Futures for your review from this morning ( June 5th 2020).

ES Futures are up 70 points on the day and are set to close higher this week. The ES has closed higher 4 of the last 5 weeks and 8 of the last 11 weeks since the March 27th lows. The selloff from 3397 to 2174 was a 36% drop of 1223 points. We have now almost retraced 85% or 1000 points off the low. The market is shrugging off all the fundamentals and news stories. Proving once again to trade what you see not what you hear.

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. This chart was prepared using our FREE E-Futures Int'l software, which you can demo for 28 days with realtime data.

The MICRO ES can be a great tool to use if you have a smaller account, just starting etc. The MICRO ES symbol is MES and it is exactly one tenth the size of the ES for value, tick size, margins etc.

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.
