“I use mental stops”…..Said the trader who just blew up his account day trading crude oil the wrong way…..

By Mark O’Brien
As futures brokers, we’ve heard clients share their thoughts on trading and truly, their strategies are as unique as the individual trader. With that said, there are a number of “nuts and bolts” to trading that all traders can employ – or not. One example of these is the STOP order. We as brokers hear a variety of assertions from our clients as to the virtues or evils of employing STOP orders in their trading.
In this blog we’re going to showcase today’s price activity in April crude oil to make a case for the virtues of employing STOP orders.
Notwithstanding the almost unheard-of ±$23/$23,000 per contract price range, at one point, the April crude oil contract fell ±$10 per barrel/$10,000 per contract in the span of five minutes.
As we’ve spelled out in recent blogs, with the Russian attack on Ukraine and all the geopolitical moving parts now involved in the conflict, commodity price volatility has reached remarkable heights across several asset classes – energies in particular. So be it, but this provides us with low hanging fruit, as it were, to advocate for the use of STOP orders. Price moves like this literally scream for the implementation of STOP orders, lest you find your proverbial trading legs cut off at the knees – or worse. If you find yourself eyeing crude oil, unleaded gas, gold, wheat, any stock index, just to list the recent headliners, transpose those mental stops to actual orders. Trade safely and sanely.
