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

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.
Useful link, just in case – LIMIT PRICE MOVES

New COVID Variant Looms and Markets React w/ Extreme Volatility, Support and Resistance Levels 11.30.2021

November 29th, 2021 Filed under Future Trading News | Comment (0)

Dear Futures Trader,

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

On Friday, Omicron, the new COVID-19 variant took the oxygen out of newsrooms.

Detected first in South Africa, this mutation is being described as potentially more contagious than the Delta variant. It is unknown whether the currently available vaccines will provide protection from it.
The result was one of the most post Thanksgiving Friday trading session I have seen in over 22 years!
Intraday Volatility in stock index futures is extremely high. Actually across many markets BTC futures leading the volatility but metals, energies ( Natural Gas down 11% today!!) and grains have seen higher volatility.
  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.
The risk is MUCH GREATER than I have seen, yet some traders look for it.
That is ok, as long as you :
Know the rules, understand current margins, know where the circuit breakers are/ limit moves.
Figure out your max risk.
After you do all that, feel free to trade but jumping in and trying to trade without the basic knowledge above is like jumping into a stormy ocean without a life vest…..At any time, feel free to contact us with questions/feedback/resources.

Note to our clients who are trading with TransactAT:

FOMC came like a hurricane as the market sold off sharply after the announcement with some heavy volume.

Last couple of days I shared my mini Russell 2000 chart along with the potential sell at 693 and target at 673. This trade idea is completed.

Below you will see my mini SP chart with potential levels both below and above as my guess is we will see volatility going both directions.

ALWAYS EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! When volatility skyrockets like now, moves become extreme, the speed of the market really picks up and this is when one must adjust their trading size lower to accommodate for the wilder and wider moves. Read the rest of this entry »
