Trading 201: Adjust your Trading with Volatility

Unemployment report along with Omicron along with an already “very spicy markets” encouraged me to share some of the following pointers.
Hope it helps.
*While I have no idea were the market is going from day to day, minute to minute, week to week etc. I do know that in the past, some of the sharpest and largest rallies were short covering after a large sell off. More often than not market sell offs and volatility like we are seeing do not end up as V type of action but more like U or W when it is all said and done.
*Expect the unexpected…
* Have an idea of what you are looking to do, keep in mind possible risk and have a game plan. Now more than ever, plan your trade and than trade your plan!
* Think money management, hedging risk while you are still trying to figure out how to profit.
* Know what is going on, reports, current margins, current limits and more.
  • Consider short term options instead of futures and/or MICROS
*Trade smaller. The bands are much larger. Watch the VIX.
* DO NOT assume anything…if you are not sure, contact us and we will try our best to assist with the combined, vast experience we have here as a team.
* Wash hands, take this seriously and do your best to stay healthy….
My colleague, John Thorpe, Ex floor broker, contributed the following on the VIX and the VVIX:
We recommend all stock indices intraday traders to keep an eye on the VIX for directional clues and study, many of you have access through other means to view this critical trading barometer, VIX now trades 5 days per week ,23 hours per day. if you need to add the VIX data to your trading platforms , it’s 3 bucks per month, penny wise and pound foolish if you don’t. Contact your broker on how to add the Volatility Index traded through the CBOE to your trading platform

VERY VOLATILE Trading Day in the Futures Markets & Support and Resistance Levels 12.02.2021

December 1st, 2021 Filed under Future Trading News, futures trading education | Comment (0)

Dear Futures Trader,

Get Real Time updates and more on our private FB group!

If the first day of December is any indication of what’s to come….then watch out because it was a VERY VOLATILE day.

While risking sounding like a broken record,.. I must share the below once again – you need to adjust your thinking , action and discipline or risk blowing up your account if caught in any of the following:
Not being focused
not using stops
revenge trading
hoping
doubling down
etc.
  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.

Hello Traders,

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

I WROTE THIS YESTERDAY AND IT IS WORTH REPEATING……

Volatility is skyrocketing. This is a completely different environment for trading than you were in 3-4 weeks ago. Markets are evolving and you must adapt your trading to changing market conditions.

This is where you find out if the gambler in you is stronger than the trader in you or vise versa….. If the trader is the strong one, you will REDUCE trading size, become extra picky in your entries , perhaps even decide not to trade at certain times…. If the gambler is the dominant one… you will find yourself all over the place up huge, down huge and I am sorry to say sooner or later you will blow up…..Think about it and try help the trader within win over the gambler that resides in the same neighborhood…..

One additional note, dont be GREEDY….set daily profit target and daily loss limit and stick to it. that can be the difference between you surviving to trade another day OR……

On a different note, please pay attention to LIMIT moves and understand what happens when the market is halting at limit levels:
