3 Main Types of Trading Days, 30 Year Bond Chart Review & Support and Resistance Levels 11.12.2021

November 11th, 2021 Filed under Charts & Indicators, Financial Futures, Future Trading News | Comment (0)

Dear Futures Trader,

Get Real Time updates and more on our private FB group!
Yesterday we had a nice volatile day, with price action both up and down and then we followed it today ( Veteran’s Day, banks are closed) with very choppy, much narrower price action. Tomorrow is Friday, after a quiet day and with some meanigful reports – which encouraged me to share the following with you on the different types of trading days:

 In my opinion there are 3 main types of trading days:

1. The most common day are two sided trading action with swings up and down – this type of trading day is most suitable for using support and resistance levels along with overbought/oversold indicators.
2. Strong trending days, mostly one directional – this type of trading day is the least common, many times will happen on Mondays and maybe 3-5 times a month at most – this type of trading day is most suitable for using ADX, MACD crossovers and pretty much looking for pullbacks to jump on the trend perhaps with the help of parabolics.
3. Slow and/or choppy trading days – this type of trading day is best suited for taking small profits from the market by looking at volume spikes, using stochastics as possible entry signals and usually wait for a pullback before jumping in.
·A good question I’ve been asked is how can one asses what type of trading day we will have while the market is still trading….I have been doing some work in finding the answers and will be happy to hear feedback via email but here are some initial observations:
1.  Was the overnight session a wide, two sided trading range? If the answer is yes, good chances for similar trading day during the primary session (primary session is when the cash/stock market is open)
2. Mondays have the highest chance for trending days
3. The behavior of the first hour of trading can also suggests the type of action for the rest of the day.
4. If the first 30 minutes of the trading day have good volume, better chances for type 1 or type 2 trading days.
5. Low volume during the first 30 minutes can suggest a choppy (type 3 trading day)
6. Are there other strong trends in other sectors? ( bonds? metals? energies? Dollar index? )

Day Trading 201: Using Tick/Volume charts and Oscillators for Scalping

Using tick charts and oscillators for day-trading (by Ilan Levy-Mayer VP of Cannon Trading and CTA at Levex.net )
I really don’t think anyone has found a “perfect way” to day-trade.
Different techniques work well in different market environment.
In this week short educational feature, I will touch on one technique you can add to your trading arsenal. This technique works better on choppy, two sidedway and/or volatile markets. It does NOT work well when the market has a strong trend.
The chart below illustrates a few principals I like:
  1. It uses a tick chart rather than a time chart. I like tick charts ( range bar, volume charts, renko) better when day-trading shorter time frames for the simple reason it already includes a big factor in the market, VOLUME. If you are using a 5 minute chart for example, you may get signals simply because time “has passed” and certain indicators you are using adopt certain values. When using tick charts during periods where there are lots of movement, you won’t have to wait until your time frame bar closes to get your signal, volume becomes a bigger more important part of your trading decision.
  2. The other part for this trading approach is to use overbought/ oversold indicators in an attempt to catch exhuastion in selling or buying and catch the counter trend move. Sometimes that move will be minor, sometimes it will be a trend reversal and at other times just a little pause in a strong trend….no crystal balls here, just another tool to observe and consider in your trading. In the PDF you will see the same indicators, same market, same time frame BUT using different type of charts…..

Today is the day for some futures market philosophy.
But first, a heads up: Start trading in January beans – November beans entering first notice day.
You should be already trading December natural gas.
My colleague, Mark O’Brien shared this with me today as he heard my frustration with some of the trades and markets…
“Every battle is won or lost before it is ever fought.”
Sun Tzu
The Art of War
This passage  that dates back the 6th century B.C. , can aptly be applied to trading futures. Prepare for each trade and set your risk.  If the initial outcome is favorable, use your enemy’s (the market’s) resources (move your stop) to sustain your trading.
Don’t engage in extended battles (over trade) and consume your resources (money, time, mental energy).
Your “enemy,” (the market) only has the power to destroy your account if you let it.
