Futures Trading Levels and Economic Reports for January 26, 2011

We should see volatile next 24 hours.

State of the Union tonight and tomorrow we have FOMC statement.

I shared the Dow Jones Cash index yesterday so i am providing an updated chart from today in which I actually got a potential sell signal.

As you can see we have a RED diamond appearing ahead of tomorrows open, the way I like to trade this signal is by entering on a stop, so in this case I will wait to see if Dow Jones Cash trades below today’s low at 11898 and only then I would have higher confidence to be short.

Below the chart, please review some notes i wrote for FOMC days:


Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results.
The risk of loss in trading can be substantial, carefully consider the inherent risks of such an investment in light of your financial condition.

FOMC days have different characteristics than other trading days. If you have traded for a while, check your trading notes from past FOMC days that may help you prepare for tomorrow.
if you are a newcomer, take a more conservative approach and make sure you understand that the news can really move the market.
My observations suggest choppy, low volume up until announcement, followed by some some sharp volatile moves right during and after the announcement. However, with tonights state of Union, we may see more volatility during first couple of hours as well.
