Futures Trading Levels, Early FOMC Release Tomorrow

Cannon Trading /

FOMC tomorrow. Keep in mind that the statement now comes out earlier than before, it comes out around 12:30 pm EST and then there is a press conference during the time FOMC used to come out at, around 2:15 PM EST.

Refer to your notes from last FOMC.

Please read below and look at a 5 minutes chart from the last FOMC day . Pay attention to how volume dries up right before and the big spike in volume and price action right during and after the announcement.

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 tomorrow early morning reports, we may see more volatility during first couple of hours as well.
