Trading 102: Tight Stops? Wide Stops? Which One Should I Use?
Entry Signals Are Very Important But Just As Important If Not More Is Trade Management.
By: Ilan Levy-Mayer, Cannon Trading Commodities Broker & VP
This article was published on FinanceMagnates.com back a couple years ago but is defintely a timeless article.
Today I decided to touch more on an educational feature rather than provide a certain market outlook. Many of my clients and blog readers know that when it comes to short term trading I am a fan of adjusting your trading technique/ game plan according to your assessment of the type of trading day that is developing in front of you.
Many new and advanced traders spend HOURS on looking for entry signals. Back testing historical data, creating algorithms to use and much more. I know. I am one of these traders.
Trade management consists of many factors. Some are psychological and some are more mathematical and many are in between. Some of the basic elements of trade management before even entering the trade are: What will my stop loss be**? will i use a stop loss**? What will my target be? will I use a target or just trail the trade if it goes my way?

The bond market, more specifically, interest rate and yield projections, have been the big force behind the moves in many other futures markets. Bonds and the U.S. dollar have been key markets to watch, regardless of whether you are trading the E-mini S&P 500, gold, crude oil or soybeans. The way “big money” flows between asset classes, the allocation of assets, as well as the hedging interests in different markets are the main forces behind most of the markets we trade here.

Hello Traders,

For 2015 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

Hello Traders,

The first trading day of June 2015 was a wild ride in many markets….almost as if the markets were quite confused on the direction for the month and traded very choppy with “unexplained, fast moves” both ways. I saw this in stock index futures, metals, currencies and even the grain sector…

As traders we need to learn how to adapt quickly, sense what type of trading day is developing in front of us and trade accordingly.

I wrote the following a while back and shared it before but worth sharing again as refresher:

  • In my opinion there are 3 main types of trading days.

1. The most common day are two sided trading action with swings up and down – this type of trading day is most suitable for using support and resistance levels along with overbought/oversold indicators.

2. Strong trending days, mostly one directional – this type of trading day is the least common, many times will happen on Mondays and maybe 3-5 times a month at most – this type of trading day is most suitable for using ADX, MACD crossovers and pretty much looking for pullbacks to jump on the trend.

3. Slow and/or choppy trading days – this type of trading day is best suited for taking small profits from the market by looking at volume spikes, using stochastics as possible entry signals and usually wait for a pullback before jumping in.

EMini S&P 500 Charts, Day Trading Tips & Resistance Levels July 27th 2010

July 26th, 2010 Filed under Commodity Trading, Day Trading, Future Trading News, Futures Trading, Index Futures | Comment (0)

“Today’s Futures Trading session was lower volume”

Well like I said before, each day-trading session in the commodities and futures markets can wear a different dress. Today’s trading session was lower volume, indecisive to start with but with enough intra-day swings in price action to provide some trading set ups.

I mentioned before in this blog as well as in my day-trading webinar that if a trader can get an early sense to the type of trading day that is about to unfold, he/ she can really increase their chances by using methods/ indicators and set ups that work better for the different trading days ( trending, choppy, volatility on both sides etc.)

In between, below you will see a daily chart of the mini SP 500 with what may be some resistance levels on the way up and possible support levels if we decide to turn around and head back south ( last week we had more than a few changes in market direction)
