Why I like to use tick and volume charts for scalping

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 using volume charts, tick charts, range bar charts and Renko charts rather than the traditional time charts like the 1 minutes, 5 minutes etc.

My rule of thumb is that if you as a trader make decisions based on charts that are less than 15 minutes time frame, it may be worth your time to research, back test and do some homework as to potentially using other type of charts like volume charts , Range charts etc.

Volume charts will draw a new bar once a user defined number of contracts traded. Example mini SP 10,000 volume chart will draw a new bar once 10,000 contracts traded.

Range bar charts will draw new charts once price action has exceeded a user pre define price or ticks range. Example might be an 18 ticks range bar chart on crude oil.

Greetings!

A great trading advice  by my colleague, Steven Nimerov who has over 25 years of experience starting on the floor of the CME.

“Look Before You Leap”

On the way to becoming a successful Futures trader you will incur many losses.
That I can attest to.

One way to guarantee you will never be a successful trader is by taking “out sized” losses.

There was a time, in my 40 year career, that I would get an idea, in my head, that I had to be in a market, jump in and then look at where a proper stop loss would have to be placed and panic because the loss would be too great if the stop loss was reached.
So being the rookie that I was, I would place what was known as a “money’ stop, which is one that is based on how much money I was willing to risk rather one that was based on support or resistance.

FRONT MONTH for STOCK INDEX is JUNE!!

A note on managing trade size by my colleague, John Thorpe who has over 25 years of experience starting on the floor of the CBOT.

Managing your trading/position size is crucial to long term success regardless of style.

Daytrading, Swing or long term position trading.

In order to select the size you will employ make a mental note of three things before you trade.  The Foundation of Trading your plan is first determining the size you will be employing, the number of contracts.

We must assume your risk capital is fixed.

1)  How liquid is the contract I will be trading?

Are there frequent price gaps, lack of continuity with bid/ask spreads.

What is the Open Interest and Volume relative to other contracts in the same industry, index , futures contract type.

Trade management is more important than Market Analysis….

I have done this so many times before, my colleagues tell me when it happens to them as well as some of my clients….You have the perfect read on the market. The market actually ends up doing what you thought it would and in a BIG way…yet somehow you manage to LOSE money despite your perfect analysis. To me this is sometimes more frustrating than having a bad losing day.

What happened?

Poor trade management, that’s what happened.

Yes, reading the market well is a much needed quality if you plan on making money rather than contributing donations to the market but more important is how you manage the trade / position once you read the market. Much easier said than done, especially after the fact but here are some tips that I am hoping will assist you in the next time you have a good market read.
