The Week Ahead:
By John Thorpe, Senior Broker
Stock index price volatility is anticipated to pick up this week with the release of several key U.S. Government reports tied to inflation. It begins early Tuesday morning and continues through Thursday.
Before we get into the details , volatility typically = additional risk.
Some traders welcome the additional price movements as it may play into their collective strategic hands, while many other traders not only create a strategy that is based on smaller more well defined price movements but, rely on reduced volatility to trade successfully.
It is an urgent matter to understand what kind of trader you are, what type of system and indicators you employ and plan your trade around these reports as you see fit.
In anticipation of the release of these numbers, some clearing firms will be increasing the day trade margin rates during this time. Please contact your broker for any questions as it relates specifically to your clearing firm and and account so you have plenty of time and capital resources to plan for these changes. Many times these short term increases in margin rates are for a matter of minutes. be prepared.
