Futures Exchange: Using Different Day Trading Techniques August 17th 2010

“The News can really Move the Futures Market”

Somewhat of a quiet day on the futures exchange to start the week after some volatile sessions last week. As I’ve said many times before, if a trader can recognize early enough during the trading session, what type of trading day is about to unfold, then one can use the proper day-trading technique more suitable for that day.

Some examples may include: join the trend on trending day, mean aversion techniques on choppy days and much more.

On a different note, I got a blue diamond for tomorrow’s session which can mean potential up day if the market can break above 1083.00 or….continued decline if it fails to gain some upside momentum. Daily chart for review below:
