What to Look for as we Finish the Trading Week

By Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker

Energy:

After starting the year near $72 per barrel, by June, West Texas crude oil (Jan. ’23 futures contract) climbed to its highs above $108 per barrel. Today, Jan. crude oil traded to an intraday low of $71.75, a ±$36 per barrel (±$36,000) leap and fall.

Not to be out don’t, after breaching $10.00 per million British thermal units in early August, natural gas traded below $5.34 intraday yesterday, a whopping ±46% cut in the asset’s value and a ±$46,000 move for a single futures contract (Jan. ’23 futures contract).

Metals:

Albeit experiencing a slight correction this week so far, gold (Feb. ’23 futures contract) managed to hold nearly all of its ±$170 rally through $1,800 per ounce off its multi-year lows of early November near $1,635 per ounce – a ±$17,000 move in one month.

Announcements:

Keep an eye on the calendar for important U.S. government reports this Friday, starting with the Labor Department’s release of its Producer Price Index showing the cost of wholesale goods and services. The reading reflects what companies pay for supplies such as grains, fuel, metals, lumber, packaging and so forth. This is a key inflation gauge in the midst of four-decade high wholesale prices. Release time: 7:30 A.M., Central Time.

Also on Friday, the USDA will release its Crop Production Report along with its World Supply/Demand report (likely the more critical). It’s delivered at 11:00 A.M., Central Time.

The current “Blackout Period” is December 3rd through December 15th.

Keep a Trading Journal!

By John Thorpe, Senior Broker

You’ll often hear us say ‘plan your trade and trade your plan’.

I’ll add to that “and keep a detailed Trading Journal or Trading Diary”.

There are a number of important ways you can develop as a trader by documenting and reviewing your daily trading activity.

  1. Skill development – a diary allows you to see where in your analysis you were correct, but most importantly where you were wrong. Most of us find it difficult to admit when a mistake has been made. A conversation in the mirror is helpful to overcome this frailty. Not calling out your mistakes will hinder you as a trader, learning from your mistakes is one of the most effective ways of improving any skill set. Michael Jordan’s secret to success was captured in his quote; “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots; I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that’s why I succeed” Fearlessness when it came to failing. Honesty first, with yourself.
  2. Improves your trading strategy- giving yourself the ability to look back and potentially avoid making the same mistake more than once. You can identify the successful strategy whether it was due to a set-up, a particular way the market was behaving, before a report or after one or perhaps your risk management strategy. After evaluating the success or failures of your trading strategy, you may conclude that you need to change that strategy.
  3. Key elements to your diary-

Date and time

Position size ( in notional value relative to your account size)

Details of the transaction, Long or Short, entry price, risk management used (stop, option or spread) trade outcome. Keep notes of specific market behavior during times like holiday trading, specific reports ( CPI, NFP etc.)

Record your why, your rationale for the trade. Record your emotional state (well rested, anxious, excited) Was it a busy day?, did you monitor the trade?, did you go to the gym?, did you leave for a few hours? Why did you close the trade? Did you get nervous? Was the market beginning to change complexion?

Setting aside time to review your journal once a week is highly recommended to gain the maximum use out of the experience. A trading journal or Trading Diary is not just about the initial documentation, but the review is what will create a better understanding of triggers, both good and bad that you can learn from and improve your trading strategy for years to come.

Take the Worry out of your Crypto Trading

By Mark O’Brien

This week, the U.S. Justice Department announced that two Estonian citizens were arrested for their alleged involvement in a $575,000,000 cryptocurrency fraud and money laundering conspiracy.

Also this week, a notable Chinese venture investor, Bo Shen revealed he lost $42 million worth of crypto as a result of a theft from his personal wallet. Most of those assets were denominated in US Dollar Coin (USDC), a stablecoin created jointly by fintech company Circle, and crypto exchange Coinbase.

Most notably in the news recently, the collapse of crypto platform FTX continues to rattle the world of digital assets. In this instance, FTX’s customers’ funds on are still frozen, and they are losing hope they will ever get much back. It’s customers number in the millions. The 50 largest creditors alone are owed more than $3 billion dollars.

It makes you wonder about the safety and integrity of trading crypto assets.

Let this be a reminder that the world’s largest futures and options exchange – the CME Group – offers you a choice for managing cryptocurrency risk with Bitcoin and Micro Bitcoin futures and options. With efficient price discovery in transparent futures markets, prices based on the regulated CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) and easily traded on your supported trading platform.

Take the worry out of your crypto trading.
