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.

Dear Traders,

*Heads up: Start trading January beans – November beans entering first notice day.
You should be already trading December natural gas.

Gold Daily Chart below…..

Potential long signal was generated today( based on personal technical factors I use) – Looking at the quote below, my biggest battle in this hypothetical example would be:
  1. Entry level ( market? wait for lower price? enter if price breaks above?)
  2. Exit in case of loss
  3. Exit in case of profit
  4. Trade size?
  5. If at a loss will I exit all? or in parts?
  6. If profit achieved will I exit part of the trade? ( assuming I am trading more than 1 contract or perhaps MICROS)
  7. Do I need to bring stop to breakeven at any point ( if certain profit achieved?)
Obviously the answer to all of the above will change from trader to trader but bringing these points up can hopefully help you approach trading from a different angle.
“Every battle is won or lost before it is ever fought.”
Sun Tzu
The Art of War
This passage – dating back the 6th century B.C. – can aptly be applied to trading futures. Prepare for each trade. Set your risk. If the initial outcome is favorable, use your enemy’s resources (move your stop) to sustain your trading.
Don’t engage in extended battles (over trade) and consume your resources (money, time, mental energy).
Your “enemy,” (the market) only has the power to destroy your account if you let it.

Crude Oil Leading Many Markets? & Support and Resistance Levels 10.06.2021

Crude Oil Leading Many Markets?

I was doing some homework last night, back testing different entry signals etc.
By mistake I plugged in a system that takes crude oil signals and applies it to the current market I was testing – Seems that these past 2 years or so, signals taken based on crude oil were more accurate ( using this specific trend following formula I was using) than signals based on the underlying contract!! To clarify I am testing longer term model using the DAILY chart.
Cotton, Coffee, Corn, beans, Gold and SP500 all did better based on price action/ signals using crude oil prices than their own data!!
Obviously this requires more in depth work, statistical analysis and forward testing but I thought it was interesting enough to share with you and give you some ideas perhaps even something to look into on intra day basis?
Speaking on crude pay attention to inventory report tomorrow.
