1. Market Commentary

We closed the first gap on the pit session/ BIG SP as you can see below.

If market has more volume on the buy side, the next target is 1185, on the other hand if volume dries out up in these levels, I will be watching price action around 1149 and 1129 before deciding which way offers better risk/ reward.

At this point, I am neutral and will wait for market to give me some clues before deciding which way to attack.

Market Volatility During the Jackson Hole Symposium | Support and Resistance Levels

August 25th, 2011 Filed under Future Trading News | Comments Off on Market Volatility During the Jackson Hole Symposium | Support and Resistance Levels

I am going to write exactly what I shared yesterday. VALID and worthy….but to add I also included a chart of the mini SP with some levels to watch for. 1197 is my resistance and 1141 is support. As mentioned below, we expect HIGH VOLATILITY!

We expect volatility to peak as we approach Friday, ahead of the weekend with Fed Chairman Bernanke speaking In Jackson Hole and Quarterly GDP numbers due early.

Plan for the unexpected. If you are a swing / position trader make sure you have enough “cushion” to sustain these volatile moves and make sure you understand your margin requirements and obligations.

On a different note, GREAT article about “Beliefs” and Trading by Dr. Janice Dorn in our weekly newsletter.
