For 2015 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
One of my favorite markets for day trading is crude oil. Actually not this month… it has taken way too much money out of my system… but normally it is. I like the fast action and some of the set ups both fear and greed present in this market.
Tomorrow is API (American Petroleum Institute) report that normally comes out Wednesday at 9:30 CDT (on short weeks, holidays etc. , this report will be pushed to Thursday at 10 AM CDT). I tell my clients that this report is way too volatile and I like to be out 5 minutes before and not resume trading 5 minutes until after the report comes out. This report by itself deserves a writing but on short, the report provides information on how our stock pile is doing ( = supply/demand) and the market will move based on the numbers versus what was expected. Again as a day trader, your main job is to know about this report, when it comes out and in my opinion stay out of the market during this time.
Observe crude oil futures tomorrow during the time of report to get a feel.
If you never traded crude oil futures before, observe for a bit and try doing so in demo mode first.
I wrote an article about this topic, you can access at:
