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

Secondly, The FOMC interest rate decision is due at 14:00 ET in the US tomorrow ( Wednesday, Oct. 30th).

FOMC days have different characteristics than other trading days. If you have traded for a while, check your trading notes from past FOMC days that may help you prepare for tomorrow.

 If you are a newcomer, take a more conservative approach and make sure you understand that the news can really move the market.

The following are suggestions on trading during FOMC days:

  • Reduce trading size
  • Be extra picky = no trade is better than a bad trade
  • Choose entry points wisely. Look at longer time frame support and resistance for entry. Take the approach of entering at points where you normally would have placed protective stops. Example, trader x looking to go long the mini SP at 1525.00 with a stop at 1519.00, instead “stretch the price bands” due to volatility and place an entry order to buy at 1519.75 and place a stop a few points below in this hypothetical example.
  • Expect the higher volatility during and right after the announcement
  • Expect to see some “vacuum” ( low volume, big zigzags) right before the number.
  • Consider using automated stops and limits attached to your entry order as the market can move very fast at times.
  • Know what the market was expecting, learn what came out and observe market reaction for clues
  • This is another great example why a trading journal would be an asset, as you can go back and check your notes from previous FOMC days.
  • Be patient and be disciplined Read the rest of this entry »

1. FOMC Statement Tomorrow!

If the first day of November is an indication of what to come….then hang on as it may be a wild ride…..

FOMC tomorrow and before that more than a few economic numbers.

FOMC days have different characteristics than other trading days. If you have traded for a while, check your trading notes from past FOMC days that may help you prepare for tomorrow.

if you are a newcomer, take a more conservative approach and make sure you understand that the news can really move the market.

My observations suggest choppy, low volume up until announcement, followed by some some sharp volatile moves right during and after the announcement. However, with tomorrow early morning reports and recent volatility, we may see wild action through out.

HEADS UP – NORMALLY FOMC COMES OUT AT 2:15 EASTERN TIME. TOMORROW IT WILL BE OUT 12:30 EASTERN TIME

One advice everyone can benefit from is, reduce your trading size in proportion to the increase in volatility. This should help your comfort level while in the day-trade.
