Futures Trading Levels & Economic Reports for October 17th 2017

Voted #1 Blog and #1 Brokerage Services on TraderPlanet for 2016!! 


Dear Traders,

I have touched about this topic before in different ways but definitely worth revisiting.

I call it:  “There is more to daytrading futures than the mini SP 500….”

When we first started offering online futures trading, back in 1997, mini SP was the king.

Stock index futures had more volatility, the market was actually moving both up and DOWN..and it was the first electronic contract. 20 years later, there are almost no pits….ALL markets are electronic, stocks been going up, almost in a straight line and we are in zero rates/ zero volatility type of environment. I am sure this will change, big question is when.

Until it does….if you have not already done so here are a few pointers I am throwing at you for further thought, exploration:

  1. Crude oil, gold are quite a bit more volatile and move both up and down. Take a look, try in demo mode.
  2. Bonds and grains offer different type of personality than some of the other markets. Again, try it in demo mode, learn contract specs and behavior.
  3. Weekly options are now available on major markets. I like some of the advantages these options have offer straight futures as well as the combination one can use. Read more here.
  4. There new contracts ( some are not that new but worth mentioning) VIX futures are an interesting product. Currency futures been around for years and are a better vehicle in my opinion than FOREX.
  5. Consider adding automated systems to your portfolio.

I am sure there is more but hope these few pointers will help you explore trading the right way. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Traders,

Day Trading 101: Tight Stops? Wide Stops? Which One Should I Use?

Entry signals are very important but just as important if not more is trade management.
By: Ilan Levy-Mayer, Cannon Trading Commodities Broker & VP

This article was published on back in April but is definitely a timeless article.

Today I decided to touch more on an educational feature rather than provide a certain market outlook. Many of my clients and blog readers know that when it comes to short term trading I am a fan of adjusting your trading technique/ game plan according to your assessment of the type of trading day that is developing in front of you.

Many new and advanced traders spend HOURS on looking for entry signals. Back testing historical data, creating algorithms to use and much more. I know. I am one of these traders.

Trade management consists of many factors. Some are psychological and some are more mathematical and many are in between. Some of the basic elements of trade management before even entering the trade are: What will my stop loss be**? will I use a stop loss**? What will my target be? will I use a target or just trail the trade if it goes my way?

Dear Traders,

World Cup Championship of Futures TradingWorld Cup Championship

Futures and forex trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves risk of loss. Futures are a leverage instrument, and because only a percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money initially deposited for a futures product.
