For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
Once again we are witnessing lower volume, lower volatility as stock indices are hanging around their all time highs….
I know that for me personally, this type of environment would be hard to day trade, hence the reason I am sharing with you a piece I wrote before about other markets to consider for day trading:
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 $13 or = $1300 wide using one futures contract. Crude ranges today was than $1.08 or about $1080 between hi/lo.
I like using overbought/ oversold indicators on the two markets as well as using range / Renko charts.
