On Friday, Omicron, the new COVID-19 variant took the oxygen out of newsrooms. Detected first in South Africa, this mutation is being described as potentially more contagious than the Delta variant. It is unknown whether the currently available vaccines will provide protection from it.
On Monday the markets shrugged the news and bounced hard….
Today, Tuesday fear, greed and everything in between took over again and we witnessed strong sell off across different markets with high volatility in many segments:
Stock indices, rates, grains, softs, energies…..
See 30 minute chart of the Mini NASDAQ from today below. In less than one hour, the difference from high to low was approximately $7750!! That is extreme leverage and can be a double edge sword…..This is when possibly trading smaller size, like 1-2 MICRO NQ may be a better fit for smaller accounts.
  1. Learn to reduce trading size. Perhaps trade smaller contracts like the micros.
  2. Adjust stops and entries based on volatility ( ATR/ Parabolics).
  3. Be extra picky on entries without chasing trades.
  4. Understand that loses are part of trading and this is definitely not a good time to “fight the markets”.
  5. Focus more on risk management and ways to protect certain positions as needed. Survive to trade another day.
  6. Consider possibly utilizing short term options rather than futures.

Micro Mini NQ Chart Review / Fibonacci Extensions; Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule & Support and Resistance Levels 11.24.2021

An exercise in Fibonacci extensions….

As the NQ started moving lower today ( I actually prefer the MNQ as it causes less stomach ache when moves against me….), I was looking for a target profit on a short position a client of mine had.
I draw FIB extension for yesterday sell off move and applied it to the high on the bounce made early this morning….Today it turned out out to be an excellent tool (click for LARGER IMAGE)….gave me targets, possible trailing stops, possible re-entry and more ( always easier looking back after the fact)….Of course there are many times where this will NOT work but you may want to take a look at Fibonacci extensions as another tool in your arsenal and just Fibonacci retracement….

Time to trade June bonds, May silver and May copper as well as May grains.
Stock futures and currencies don’t roll over until mid March and we will send a separate notice.
The recent volatility reminds me of last March, when COVID started.
I have a few points to make:
  1. Take a look at the below chart from today on the mini NASDAQ this volatility will play both sides and in MY OPINION this is not a market to just buy and hold using futures….You need to be able to react and adjust positions according to market action and sentiment.
  2. DON’T try to predict tops and bottoms….
  3. Learn to reduce trading size. Perhaps trade smaller contracts like the micros.
  4. Understand that loses are part of trading and this is definitely not a good time to “fight the markets”.
  5. Focus more on risk management and ways to protect certain positions as needed.
  6. Survive to trade another day.

Volume Based Trading Emini NQ & Support and Resistance Levels 1.14.2021

Dear Traders,

Today I am sharing an example of using volume chart along with FIB levels when following intraday market action.
Market is NQ
Chart type is CVB = constant volume bar
5000 contracts traded complete one bar.
This model uses a theory that when it comes to short term day trading, volume is much more important than time, hence the use of volume bars. I use bars of between 1,000 to 18,000 contracts traded (pending the specific market, based on recent volatility, trade volume and a few other factors). That means that instead of bars completing based on time frame (i.e. 1 minute or 15 minutes etc.), we use volume instead of time. So each time X,000 contracts traded, a new bar will complete.  When the specific market has high volume and is moving fast, the bars will complete faster. When market is in low volume without much action, the bars will complete slower.
For me personally, this has helped getting signals ahead of time when there is fast action in the market and avoiding false signals when volume is low.
Needless to say volume charts on their own are no crystal ball and there is much more to trading but may help you take a look at your charts from a a diff. angle.
