O.P.E.C. will make a decision on output policy for February when they meet tomorrow. Please expect and prepare accordingly in the early A.M. and anticipate additional volatility not only in the energy markets , CL, NG, RBOB and Heating oil but also in the Equity indices ES, MES, NQ, MNQ, YM, MYM, RTY , and food markets as OPEC will be meeting in Vienna at 8a.m. EST (1 p.m. Central European TIme zone ) in light of the current restrictions and challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please find the expected hours of release useful. Will their decision add to the existing inflationary concerns or will OPEC concede it’s output tightening instituted in 2020 has run it’s course and agree to raise it’s output limits in a measured approach or more substantially? The bond market has taken a nose dive in recent days and interest rates are expected to rise , tightening credit, Metals have also sold off in anticipation of easing inflationary pressures. Manage your risk well this week.

5. Futures Economic Reports for Wednesday August 24, 2016

Hello Traders,


Tomorrow, like almost every Wednesday, we will have EIA report at 9:30 AM Central Time. This report definitely moves the energy sector, crude oil, heating oil and unleaded gas.

The one I follow the most, as I feel it is suitable for day trading is Crude oil. I have shared many of my observations about trading crude on this blog before. Today I want to talk specifically about the report.

Two main ways in my opinion to trade the report:

  1. Don’t trade it…Get out 5 minutes before and wait 5-10 minutes after the smoke clears before you resume trading.
  2. Be flat before the report and place limit orders with corresponding stops and profit targets to buy low and/ or sell high. Perhaps look at bollinger bands on the 15 minute chart and use sell and buy limits around the extreme. If you brave enough , have enough risk capital and experience to go about it, make sure you have stops attached to these limit orders as the market can move very FAST. Not just that, you can also expect slippage. That being said, I have seen crude oil make some extreme moves right on the number only to come back either way before making another extreme move…If you looking to try this I HIGHLY recommend to use a demo account first and see how it goes. Don’t jump in with real money just because you read about it somewhere….( here in this case).

Below you will see 10 seconds chart for last Wednesday to give somewhat of an example, followed by the 15 minute chart below.

Erratic Price Fluctuations in Crude Oil and Rising Options Volatility

August 12th, 2013 Filed under Futures Trading | Comment (0)

Crude oil futures have traded between $102 and $109 per barrel within the last few weeks (7/19 to 8/9 2013), touching both extremes twice within that period of time. Thursday’s (8/8) 3-week low of 102.24 on the September futures contract was followed by a surge up to a 105.92 high late that day and into Friday, a 3.5% rebound.

As a direct result, crude options volatility for at-the-money options expiring in September, a measure of expected price swings in crude oil and a gauge of options value, also increased.

This market move is a great opportunity to discuss option volatility. Change in options volatility is an important component when calculating an option’s value and can shed light on possible options trading strategies to implement. When you look at option prices and consider certain strategies, knowing whether an option or set of options are “over priced” or “under priced” due to high or low options volatility affords useful information as to whether you should be selling options or buying them.
