Futures Trading Levels & Economic Reports - August 2011

Futures Trading Levels, Proceed With Caution – Live to Trade Another Day

To add to such high volatility, we will have FOMC tomorrow morning.

THESE ARE NOT NORMAL MARKET CONDITIONS TO SAY THE LEAST.

If you normally trade 4 lots, I suggest you trade 1 contract or even just stay out of the market.

If you normally trade 50 lots, you may want to reduce your trading size to 10 lots.

Yes, the wide range provide many opportunities but they also provide the risk of getting your account wiped out.

SURVIVE TO TRADE ANOTHER DAY…..

When markets trade with such high volatility, one must understand the enviroment one is trading in, which is quite different from the environment of few weeks ago.

Ranges are wider, speed is faster and volume is higher. You must take that into account, adjust your trading accordingly and make sure that you set limits as far as your daily risk is concerned and don’t allow one trade or one trading day to wipe your trading account.

WITH THE INCREASING DAILY RANGES, IT WOULD BE WISE TO VISIT THE FOLLOWING LINK AND STAY UPDATED ON DAILY LIMIT MOVES, JUST IN CASE:
