Crude Oil Trading Updates, Opportunities and Risks:

By John Thorpe, Senior Broker
Have you had an opportunity to trade the financially settled Micro WTI Crude oil contract? I have and this contract is just what the doctor ordered. When you are faced with the high price and volatility we have seen over the past few years you won’t have to make a decision to either be out or be in the WTI Crude oil contract where we have seen $10,000.00 daily price swings.
With the Micro, which is one tenth the size of the 1000 barrel WTI Crude contract or 100 barrels only, each dollar move per contract in the price of Crude oil is $100.00 rather than $1000.00. What this allows you to do is adjust the amount of leverage you want and not expose yourself to the volatility of the larger CL contract.
The symbol is MCL U22 for the current September contract.
According to the CMEGroup, 33,000 unique traders have come to the CME to trade this contract since it was listed a year ago. The CME Group declares traders from over 145 countries trade the Micro crude oil contract and traders from over 33 countries have traded the new Options contracts on the Micro Crude contract.
Transaction Costs are inexpensive for this contract as exchange fees are .50 per contract.
As always, plan your trade and trade your plan. Please contact your broker or Cannon Trading with any questions.

Crude Oil Futures Volatility Offers A “Different Market Personality” Than Stock Index Futures. Here Is Some Of The Things You Need To Know About Day Trading Crude Oil Futures:

By: Ilan Levy-Mayer, Cannon Trading Commodities Broker & VP
Crude Oil is one of MY favorite futures market for day trading. Before I dive in and share with you how the volatility in crude oil fits my risk tolerance for day trading and provide a couple of chart examples, we should review some of the specifications of Crude Oil Futures.
Crude Oil Futures have monthly expiration. So each month we trade a different contract month, so one needs to know when is the first notice day and last trading day for crude oil futures in order to always make sure we are trading the proper month with the most liquidity and avoid any chance of getting into delivery situation.
Next is the contract size. Crude Oil futures are based on 1000 barrels. To be honest from a day trading perspective all I care is that each tick or 1 cent fluctuation is $10 against me or in my favor per contract. That means that a move from 92.94 to 92.74 = $200.
Another factor is trading hours. At the time I am sharing my thoughts with you, April 8th 2013, crude oil futures trade on the CME Globex platform and trade from 5 PM CDT until the next day at 4 PM CDT. That is 23 of straight trading hours. I definitely don’t recommend day trading this market 23 hours…but it is good to know the trading hours.
Volume in crude oil futures is pretty good to trade in my opinion. Averaging about 300,000 contracts per day.
One last pointer to touch on is the API (American Petroleum Institute) report that normally comes out Wednesday at 9:30 CDT (on short weeks, holidays etc. , this report will be pushed to Thursday at 10 AM CDT). I tell my clients that this report is way too volatile and I like to be out 5 minutes before and not resume trading 5 minutes until after the report comes out. This report by itself deserves a writing but on short, the report provides information on how our stock pile is doing ( = supply/demand) and the market will move based on the numbers versus what was expected. Again as a day trader, your main job is to know about this report, when it comes out and in my opinion stay out of the market during this time..
Would you like to contact Ilan or any of our brokers for more feedback? We are happy to help!
Are you using Sierra charts and looking to implement their Teton order routing?
If so, look no further, Cannon can assist you in getting set up!

FOMC Tomorrow + Futures Trading Levels for 7.27.2022

FOMC Tomorrow – Fed decision

Big day tomorrow! More than a few reports including crude oil numbers and most important, FOMC – Fed decision.
Looks like the FED will raise rates between 50-75 basis points. currently 75% for 0.75 hike)
The exact figure?
How many fed governors voted? language? future projections?
All these factors will be KEY.
The following are my PERSONAL suggestions on trading during FOMC days:
·    Reduce trading size
·    Be extra picky = no trade is better than a bad trade
·    Choose entry points wisely. Look at longer time frame support and resistance for entry. Take the approach of entering at points where you normally would have placed protective stops. Example, trader x looking to go long the mini SP at 3725.00 with a stop at 3719.00, instead “stretch the price bands” due to volatility and place an entry order to buy at 3719.75 and place a stop a few points below in this hypothetical example ( consider current volatility along with support and resistance levels).
·    Expect the higher volatility during and right after the announcement
·    Expect to see some “vacuum” ( low volume, big zigzags) right before the number.
·    Consider using automated stops and limits attached to your entry order as the market can move very fast at times.
·    Keep in mind statement comes out at 1 Pm Central time, the news conference which dissects the language comes out 30 minutes later so the volatility window stretches out.
·    Know what the market was expecting, learn what came out and observe market reaction for clues
·    Be patient and be disciplined
·    If in doubt, stay out!!
As always, plan your trade and trade your plan. Please contact your broker or Cannon Trading with any questions.
