5. Futures Economic Reports for Tuesday May 7, 2013
For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
We started this week very quietly, especially compare to last week. Much lower volume and narrower trading range.
Last week we had a slew of reports and events and the daily ranges were wider than the average ( take a look at the Mini Dow Jones daily chart below and the ATR, average true range study in it). This week we started quietly and there is not much activity ahead on the economic calendar until Thursday.
Try to get a feel for the market early in the day by looking at the overnight range as well as the range of the first trading hour after cash open. This can help you estimate what type of range/ volatility we may have and adjust your trading parameters accordingly.
