Hello Traders,

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

Hello Traders,

Many different ways to make and lose money trading futures, even more so when day trading.

Today’s action in crude oil futures led me to write about:

Three main approaches out there in my opinion.

The first is what I call the “trend is your friend”. A trader looks at few different time frames, looking to see if there is an established trend on longer time frame ( example 60 minutes chart) and then trying to look for pull back on lower time frames and “join the trend”. Only works for certain markets and only works few times of the month as most days markets do not have an intraday trend in my opinion.

Second method is what we call break out. Traders will look for markets that have been in a lower volatility situation using indicators such as ADX for example. Then they will look at the chart to find what they feel are levels that if broken can fuel a stronger move in the same direction. These levels can be extracted visually looking at the chart or using highs/ lows of X periods. This method works better on some markets than others. I noticed that crude oil and gold futures tend to have better chances of a continued breakout move than the mini SP 500 for example.

Also keep in mind that March is now the front month for stock indices, financials, currencies and grains!
What a wild ride today following the FOMC !!

Two charts for your viewing pleasure….one is an 8 tick range bar of the mini SP. Note it took the market 4 hours to complete the same range ( volume as well) it did in about 2 minutes right after FOMC ( if you read my blog yesterday, you hopefully listened and stayed out of the market during the minutes before and right after as I feel it is a pure gamble) –  so first chart just to demonstrate the volatility after the report.

Second chart is a daily chart of the March mini SP along with possible levels both above and below.

Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading! 

Busy week ahead! Many diff. reports coming out this week with FOMC decision this Wednesday.

We saw some volatility in the overnight session on the SP 500 but very tight range once the cash market opened.

As far as market outlook, we are at a junction again, like we were back on Nov. 8th when the market declined for a bit and then made a new low only to close much higher. We saw similar action today ( I circled both today’s and Nov. 8th ). The big question is if new highs are awaiting or is this is just a bounce. I think answers will come by the end of the week ( might be too late, I wish we knew the answer in advance) but for now I am treating this market as a very wide decision channel between today’s lows at 1754 and recent high at 1805.75 basis the March contract.

New highs on the SP500…..

 

I have drawn the extensions in the chart below last week…will be interesting to see if price respects those levels or not…I guess we can find out as early as tomorrow….

On a different note:

  • My opinion is that there are 3 main types of trading days.

 

  1. Most common is 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 day, 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 day – 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.

 

  • Good question is how can one asses what type of trading day we will have while the market is still trading….I am doing some work about it and will be happy to hear feedback via email but here are some initial observations:
    1. Was the overnight session a wide, two sided trading range? If the answer is yes, good chances for similar trading day during the primary session ( primary session is when the cash/ stock market is open).
    2. Mondays have the highest chance for trending days.
    3. The behavior of the first hour of trading can also suggests the type of action for the rest of the day.
    4. If the first 30 minutes have good volume, better chances for type 1 or type 2 trading days.
    5. low volume during first 30 minutes can suggest a choppy (type 3 trading day).
