In this blog entry today we are sharing four videos, each a few minutes long. The videos discuss practical tips for trading and sharing our experience with you
1. Using Bollinger Bands as a possible tool for exiting trades
2. One way you can use the Parabolics study ( also known as PSAR) to manage current positions, possibly as a trailing stop
3. Different ways traders can utilize support and resistance levels in their trading.
4. Entering trades on a stop, using “price confirmation”.
5. Utilizing Range Bar charts for shorter term trading as a way to try and filter out some noise.

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.
Natural gas is still the nation’s dominant fuel source but democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden touted his $2 trillion clean energy plan seeks to end natural gas use within 15 years. No one knows what the result of the presidential election will be, but in between Nat Gas has seen heightened volatility.
Very volatile market with wild moves recently as well as large intraday trading ranges.
Natural Gas Futures Specs. (this market also offers a mini Nat Gas futures contract which is half the size)
Hours: 5:00 PM to 4:00 PM the following day, Central Time
Margins: $2970 initial, $2700 maintenance ( as of the date of this newsletter
Point Value: full point = $100 ( Example: 404.0 to 405.0 ). Min. price fluctuation is 0.1 = $10 ( Example: 404.1 to 404.2)
Settlement: Physical, deliverable commodity
Months: Monthly cycle, All Months
Weekly Options: YES
Some of the basic fundamentals to keep in mind when you are considering trading the Nat Gas market:
1. Longer term view of current market prices
2. Supply and Demand
3. Seasonality, i.e. heating and cooling cycles
4. Be aware of Thursday morning’s EIA gas storage report at 9:30 AM CDT
Our brokers here at Cannon will be happy to chat about the Natural Gas market, other energies, other futures, options, futures spreads and much more! Feel free to contact us at any time.

Using Preset Trade Management When Trading Futures & Futures Levels 10.22.2020

Take a look at a video from today where I share some set ups on the ES using volume charts and review preset of auto exits and trade managements. In this video you will see a 45 minutes trade condensed into 15 minutes.
When markets are moving SO FAST like the NQ/ ES and others have recently, I like using automated stops and limits. One can do so using brackets or even built in strategies where you specify different limits, stops, when to move your stop as a trailing stop and much more.
This morning at 11:22 AM central time, high on NQ was approx. 11738, 11 minutes later the low was 11648 – that is close to $2000 LOSS if you are trading one mini nasdaq and in the wrong direction…..
I know my stomach feels much better when I have stops and limits working in the system working….( also maybe use MICROS for the same reason?)

This past week I have seen the NQ make 50-100 points moves in matter of seconds based on a tweet or news etc.
I know my stomach feels much better when I have stops and limits working in the system working….( also maybe use MICROS for the same reason?)

What’s the Fair Value of Gold? & Futures Trading Levels 10.20.2020

What’s the fair value of gold?
by CMEGroup.com
Many investors and traders have asked this question while reassessing their portfolios and risk exposures in light of COVID-19.
The world economy experienced an unprecedented shock in 2020, and no single asset class was immune.
Read why the global gold markets took center stage when gold climbed above $2K per troy ounce in August, and what to watch for as 2020 winds down.
Macro environment for gold
Back in March, governments and central banks across the world took quick action when the global economy went into lockdown mode. The support they gave to protect citizens and businesses also fed through to financial markets. The Federal Reserve and other central banks have promised to keep interest rates at record-low levels until further notice. Low interest rates make gold more attractive, since low financing costs reduce the opportunity costs of holding gold in a portfolio. Another factor has helped push gold higher: since it is priced in U.S. dollars, a decrease in the value of the dollar naturally increases the price of gold. The U.S. dollar has been weakening against many of its global competitors this year: it lost strength versus the Euro, the Yen, the Swiss Franc and the Chinese Renminbi. Finally, the uncertain economic outlook may have led many investors to increase their exposure to the yellow metal as a safe haven asset.
All in, this created something like a perfect environment for gold to reach a $2,000 price level. Since then, the metal has fallen back slightly, just as the U.S. dollar and interest rates have shown tentative signs of strengthening. For the remainder of the year, the upcoming U.S. elections will be one of the key events to watch. Of course, the Covid-19 pandemic is not under control yet, and so it should also continue to have a significant impact on financial markets and on the price of gold.
