Top 50 Trading Rules
Most Common Pitfalls To Avoid When Trading Futures-Commodity Futures
500 experienced futures brokers were asked what caused most futures traders to lose money when comes to trading futures.
Their answers reflected the trading experience of more than 10,000 futures traders.  Download the PDF and find out what they said.

1.) Have a Plan

Many futures traders trade without a plan. They do not define specific risk and profit objectives before trading. Even if they establish a plan, they “second guess” it and don’t stick to it, particularly if the trade is a loss. Consequently, they overtrade and use their equity to the limit (are undercapitalized), which puts them in a squeeze and forces them to liquidate positions. Usually, they liquidate the good trades and keep the bad ones.

2.) News Factor

Many traders don’t realize the news they hear and read has, in many cases, already been discounted by the market.

3.) Trade Objectively

After several profitable trades, many speculators become wild and nonconservative. They base their trades on hunches and long shots, rather than sound fundamental and technical reasoning, or put their money into one deal that “can’t fail.”

4.) Know Your Size

Traders often try to carry too big a position with too little capital and trade too frequently for the size of the account.

5.) Don’t Get Greedy when it comes to Trading Futures

Some traders try to “beat the market” by day trading, nervous scalping, and getting greedy.

Trading 102: What type of Trading Day is it?
The strong contrast between the last few days speed and behavior of different markets across the board compared to what we witnessed in January, brought me to share this piece:
  • My opinion is that there are 3 main types of trading days.
1. Most common is 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 day, 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
3. Slow and/ or choppy trading day – 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.
  • Good question is how can one asses what type of trading day we will have while the market is still trading….I am doing some work about it 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 have good volume, better chances for type 1 or type 2 trading days.
  5. low volume during first 30 minutes can suggest a choppy (type 3 trading day)

Trading 102: What’s Your Trading blood type?
This is a reprint of an article Ilan Levy-Mayer, VP of Cannon wrote for SFO magazine a few years back. Valuable information which we wanted to share with you:
Perhaps the greatest luxury I have in this business is the ability to observe the experiences of many traders with different personalities, life schedules and risk capital, each trading in a variety of markets. What most astute brokers realize is that, over time, as some individuals prematurely exit winners while others desperately cling to losers, it becomes quite possible to match different “blood types” of those traders with their correct “trading diets.” Clearly, we’re not talking the medical blood type here, but in the figurative sense it makes the right point. With practice, it’s not too hard to determine blood types (type of trading best suited to the individual) based on the personality of the trader, and then prescribe a diet based on that individual trader’s capital, experience, risk profile and schedule.
