Dear Traders,
Today’s action in Silver, gold, SP and NQ lead me to write the quick piece below.
Few words on BREAKOUT trading.
The concept is one of many different traders use.
Some like to use COUNTRER TREND trading.
others look at ORDER FLOW, some will use support and resistance mainly and hopefully more traders will master a few different techniques and use the appropriate one depending on the type of trading day that is developing in front of their eyes.
The concept of break out trading looks for the market to “snap out” of a certain trading range and continue moving in that direction. The toughest part is to filter out the “fake breakouts” and recognize early enough which breakouts have the potential to be a powerful one.
A few tips to explore:
Look for a breakout on a smaller time frame that will coincide with a longer time frame CURRENT trend. So you may look at a daily trend and look for a breakout on the hourly chart?
You may trade smaller time frames and look for breakouts that will coincide with the 30 minute chart time frame.
Last but not least ( for today only of course as I am sure there are MUCH more than the short few pointers I am sharing….) try utilizing different type of charts and do your homework in regards to which breakouts seem to work better than others. Look at RANGE BAR charts, explore VOLUME charts, maybe even take a look at Renko bars and other types as well.

3 Risks of Using a Discount Futures Broker

December 13th, 2013 Filed under Commodity Trading, Future Trading News, Future Trading Platform, Futures Broker, Futures Trading | Comments Off on 3 Risks of Using a Discount Futures Broker

With the advent of technology, the means to communicate clear objectives, or with any human, drives most people to ignore full-service futures brokers. Why? It is a spirit of independence. Computers have created a superhighway of trading, and accelerated the pace at which commodities, stocks, in short the financial market operates. These various methods have raised barriers between clients and full-service brokers, but given rise to- discount futures brokers. In reality, what the future of the financial markets beckons, is a direct and honest appraisal of the quick and easy model, versus the client and broker relationship. If the “Great Recession” taught us all anything, if you are not vigilant, or the means to track your investment, there is an inherent risk.

Knowledge vs. Education

Brain to Understanding is to hat on a head, both are useful, if absolutely used for maximum benefits to create larger profits to debt losses. Most experienced futures brokers understand the full scope of the financial market, and this long range vision gives insight into the behaviors of certain commodities. Conversely, when opting out of choosing a full-service futures broker, you are presented with limited tools, vision and insight.

Vision, in the entrepreneurial sense, is the act or power of anticipating what will come to be. If you are a newcomer, choosing discount futures brokers, may lead to a lack discernment or experience to sell or buy at appropriate times to gain the maximum profit, while minimizing the loss. This vital quality reigns supreme on experienced traders in the financial sector. However, the key to having a strong vision is insight.

Insight varies to vision, in that you see both near and far and eventually the end result of a business decision. Good judgment plays an integral part in evaluating leverage metrics, whether using gold as a hedge, or evident world events that will signal either a sharp decline or increase in the markets.

Overall, vision and insight, help with the learning curve in the futures market. In addition, being green in this market can cost you a great deal of time and money. Adding vision and insight to your expansive market toolbox can aid in shortening common investment mistakes, with the aid of the seasoned futures broker as your guide. Conversely, selecting a discount futures broker, they may not have the ability to reign in your decision making. Bad decisions – loss of profit. Consequently, bucking traditional wisdom, you could lose larger returns, and run into dangerous investment decisions.

E-Mini NASDAQ 100 Futures Technical Analysis for July 16th 2013

July 16th, 2013 Filed under Future Trading News, Futures Broker, Index Futures | Comment (0)

Sept. Mini NASDAQ futures ( symbol on most platforms is NQU3) are trading at 3070.00 at the time I am writing this analysis – July 16th 2013.

As a commodity futures broker,  I am going to focus on the technical aspect of this market and provide my technical opinion, I think it is important to be aware of the fundamental aspects and the events coming up which can move the market either way. To start with,  Traders are probably already looking forward to today’s testimony before Congress by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. The big question he will be asked is how does the FED plans on tapering down the massive injection of cash or what we know as QE. I think the reason the markets are down today is in anticipation of this testimony. Economic numbers will continue to pour in as well as a G20 meeting and earning season is in place.
