Risk & Trade Management in Volatile Markets, NQ Chart review & Support and Resistance Levels 12.01.2021

Dear Futures Trader,

Get Real Time updates and more on our private FB group!
On Friday, Omicron, the new COVID-19 variant took the oxygen out of newsrooms. Detected first in South Africa, this mutation is being described as potentially more contagious than the Delta variant. It is unknown whether the currently available vaccines will provide protection from it.
On Monday the markets shrugged the news and bounced hard….
Today, Tuesday fear, greed and everything in between took over again and we witnessed strong sell off across different markets with high volatility in many segments:
Stock indices, rates, grains, softs, energies…..
See 30 minute chart of the Mini NASDAQ from today below. In less than one hour, the difference from high to low was approximately $7750!! That is extreme leverage and can be a double edge sword…..This is when possibly trading smaller size, like 1-2 MICRO NQ may be a better fit for smaller accounts.
  1. Learn to reduce trading size. Perhaps trade smaller contracts like the micros.
  2. Adjust stops and entries based on volatility ( ATR/ Parabolics).
  3. Be extra picky on entries without chasing trades.
  4. Understand that loses are part of trading and this is definitely not a good time to “fight the markets”.
  5. Focus more on risk management and ways to protect certain positions as needed. Survive to trade another day.
  6. Consider possibly utilizing short term options rather than futures.
