Futures Trading Levels, Proceed With Caution

When markets trade with such high volatility, one must understand the enviroment he or she are trading in, which is quite different from the enviroment of a 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 not allow for one trade or one trading day to wipe your trading account.

I wrote more about the topic in an article called: “Survivor day-trading.”
