Futures Trading Levels and Economic Reports for December 7th 2010

December 7th, 2010 Filed under Future Trading News, Futures Broker, Futures Exchange | Comments Off on Futures Trading Levels and Economic Reports for December 7th 2010

Today was a “slow trading day” when it came to stock indices, which leads me to a good point I would like to make. Most of our day traders, trade the e-mini stock index futures, mostly the mini SP because of its heavy daily volume and exposure.

However, I think that day-traders should be able to follow at least another market, maybe even two additional markets and look for different set up in these markets as well.

Good example from today is the Euro currency. While the mini SP was pretty dead….the Euro had nice range, good volatility and good volume which presents both risks and opportunities for day-traders.

Obviously, before you start trading a new market you should educate yourself on tick size, trading hours, “personality”, when is there more volume in that specific contract etc.

If you do so, I think you will achieve a couple of things, first is diversification. While some days trades in certain market may not work, trades in a different market may provide balance.

Also, if on certain days, certain markets are “sleepy” ( which most day-traders do NOT like), another market may have more action….

As always, do your homework, practice in simulation mode first and make sure you understand the “new contract” you may be trading along with the risks involved.

Quadruple Witching to Provide S&P 500 with Clues, September 17th 2010

September 16th, 2010 Filed under Day Trading Webinar, Futures Broker, Futures Exchange | Comment (0)

Same comments from yesterday and the day before still hold true….main difference is the tomorrow is quadruple witching day so I am hopeful that we finally break out one way or the other……

Well by now this is the 3rd or 4th time we are knocking on 1122.75…..that means one out of two (in my opinion): Tomorrow morning reports help this market break this level and start another leg up towards 1157.00

OR…..

Market fails one more time against this level, fills the gap below ( 1105.75) before giving us some additional clues.
I would love to have the “correct answer” to give you but only time and price action will tell….
