5. Futures Economic Reports for Thursday May 19, 2016
For 2016 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
FOMC minutes produced quite a bit of fireworks in bonds, metals and stock indices!
One must know when certain reports come out, do homework as to prior experience/ market behavior ( look at your trading journal? notes?) and be ready.
I looked at prior FOMC and the related FOMC minutes for 2 markets I was trading today, gold and bonds in an attempt to make an educated speculation….today it worked, there are many days it doesn’t but at least i did my homework and stuck to my game plan.
Plan your trade, trade your plan!
