Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading! 

Another slow, summer trading day to start the week in the stock index futures segment. Be careful of this type of trading days. The low volume and narrow ranges can get you too comfortable to trading sloppy….

Sometimes no trade is better than a bad trade. Actually all the time…

In between gold futures had a nice up move over the last few sessions. Daily chart of Dec. Gold futures for your review below.

Notice that prices closed ABOVE the IMOKU cloud, which is usually a bullish sign. Market needs to confirm this bullish sign by closing above 1349.5.
