Trading 102: Day Trading Commodities with Crude Oil Futures
Crude Oil Futures Volatility Offers A “Different Market Personality” Than Stock Index Futures. Here Is Some Of The Things You Need To Know About Day Trading Crude Oil Futures:
By: Ilan Levy-Mayer, Cannon Trading Commodities Broker & VP
Crude Oil is one of MY favorite futures market for day trading. Before I dive in and share with you how the volatility in crude oil fits my risk tolerance for day trading and provide a couple of chart examples, we should review some of the specifications of Crude Oil Futures.
Crude Oil Futures have monthly expiration. So each month we trade a different contract month, so one needs to know when is the first notice day and last trading day for crude oil futures in order to always make sure we are trading the proper month with the most liquidity and avoid any chance of getting into delivery situation.
Next is the contract size. Crude Oil futures are based on 1000 barrels. To be honest from a day trading perspective all I care is that each tick or 1 cent fluctuation is $10 against me or in my favor per contract. That means that a move from 92.94 to 92.74 = $200.
Another factor is trading hours. At the time I am sharing my thoughts with you, April 8th 2013, crude oil futures trade on the CME Globex platform and trade from 5 PM CDT until the next day at 4 PM CDT. That is 23 of straight trading hours. I definitely don’t recommend day trading this market 23 hours…but it is good to know the trading hours.
Volume in crude oil futures is pretty good to trade in my opinion. Averaging about 300,000 contracts per day.
One last pointer to touch on is the API (American Petroleum Institute) report that normally comes out Wednesday at 9:30 CDT (on short weeks, holidays etc. , this report will be pushed to Thursday at 10 AM CDT). I tell my clients that this report is way too volatile and I like to be out 5 minutes before and not resume trading 5 minutes until after the report comes out. This report by itself deserves a writing but on short, the report provides information on how our stock pile is doing ( = supply/demand) and the market will move based on the numbers versus what was expected. Again as a day trader, your main job is to know about this report, when it comes out and in my opinion stay out of the market during this time..Fill out the form below to read the full article.

Hello Traders,

For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

Hello Traders,

Tried to think about something worth sharing, information that can help traders and to be honest I could not think of anything I have not shared with you before so Decided to share a weekly chart of crude oil futures as we are sitting against MAJOR weekly support level at a 4 year lows. It will be interesting to see if we consolidate around here, have an initial bounce or break through and continue the slide we have seen. The next FIB level I draw on the weekly is at 53.90 just an FYI since you can not see it on the chart below.
PS: Crude Oil is one of the more active/volatile markets out there and is an interesting day trading market to say the least……

Crude Oil Futures Testing Major Weekly Support Level, SP500 Volatility Higher + Levels for 8.6.2014

August 5th, 2014 Filed under Commodity Trading, Crude Oil, Day Trading, Energy Futures, Future Trading News, Index Futures | Comment (0)

Hello Traders,

For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

Volatility has picked up again! Make sure you adapt as markets are always changing and what may work for range bound/ low volatility days will not work for wide range/ higher volatility days.

I see major support for SP500 at 1795 and it will be interesting to see price reaction if we test this level in the next few days.

On a different note, I wrote a quick analysis along with chart for Crude Oil futures at:

Another two markets I like to touch on when it comes to “other markets to daytrade beside the mini SP 500” are crude Oil and Gold futures.

More than a few similarities between the two markets.

They are both volatile, can move VERY fast. I have seen some very large moves happen in matter of minutes if not seconds. The “fear & greed” factor really plays a role in these specific two markets.

Both have active trading hours starting with Far East trading around 10 PM est all the way to the next morning until about 3 PM est. Good volume generally speaking but not close to the mini SP or ten year notes. So you may see some slippage on stops but the volume is more than enough to trade size.

Each tick on gold is $10, so every dollar move =$100 against you or in your favor. Crude is similar, each tick = $10. One full $1 move = $1000.

Both markets were quiet today relatively speaking but even on a quiet day, the range on gold was  $21 or = $2100 wide using one futures contract. Crude ranges today was less than $1 or about $890 between hi/lo.

I like using overbought/ oversold indicators on the two markets as well as using range / Renko charts.

If you never traded these markets before, I highly recommend exploring in simulation/ demo mode. get a feel for the explosiveness, volatility, personality for a few weeks before trying in live mode.

As always, any questions, please feel free to email me.

Two charts from today’s session of gold and crude for your review below ( if you like to try the charts I am using along with indicators displayed, send me an email):

 

Crude 18 ticks range bar Feb. 11th 2014

CLE - Crude Lights (Globex), Equalized Active Continuation - Range Bar 18 Ticks Units

GCE - Gold (Globex), Equalized Active Continuation - Range Bar =, 18 Ticks Units

GCE – Gold (Globex), Equalized Active Continuation – Range Bar =, 18 Ticks Units

Hello Traders,

While our stock indices markets ( SP, Dow, NASDAQ and Russell ) been trading in very narrow range ( today was a small exception), the crude oil market continues to show the double edge volatility day-traders are looking for.

Below is a daily chart of April Crude oil futures.
PS: Stock index futures have shown in the past tendency to go through periods of low volatility and then change to periods of high volatility. The VIX index is a good indicator, which i will try to share more about tomorrow but my point is, be ready for shift in volatility and wider ranges on stock indices….as always, the question is when.

CLE - Crude light (Globex), Equalized Active Daily Continuation
