Dear Traders,

Most traders nowadays trade online utilizing what we call self directed, online trading.
However, some traders may benefit from a service called broker assisted trading
Traders who are not able to watch the screen all day, traders who are swing or longer term traders, traders who sell options are just some examples of clients who may benefit from working one on one with a broker.
The broker can alert the client for diff. price levels, developments and be a second pair of eyes as well as another voice to reason with and consult with.
You can read more on this type of service at:

Factors Likely to Shape Fed’s Interest Rate Path in H2 2018
By Blu Putnam, Chief Economist, CME Group

Video Highlights
  • Fed could hike rates at least once in H2 2018 as core inflation edges up
  • A second rate increase in H2 is possible but dependent on inflation data
  • Fed aiming for ‘rate neutrality,’ when fed funds rate equals core inflation
  • 10-Year Treasury Note at 3% could be a floor, not ceiling, if inflation strengthens

Range bar and volume charts may be a better solution for day trading & Support & Resistance Levels 6.19.2018

Dear Traders,

Why I Like to Use Tick and Volume Charts for Scalping

Today, I decided to touch more on an educational feature rather than provide a certain market outlook.
Many of my clients and blog readers know that when it comes to short-term trading I am a fan of using volume charts, tick charts, range bar charts and Renko charts rather than the traditional time charts like the 1 minutes, 5 minutes etc.
My rule of thumb is that if you as a trader who makes decisions based on charts that are less than 15 minutes time frame, it may be worth your time to research, back test and do some homework as to potentially using other type of charts like volume charts, Range charts etc.
Volume charts will draw a new bar once a user defined number of contracts traded. An example is the mini SP 10,000 volume chart which will draw a new bar once 10,000 contracts are traded.
Range bar charts will draw new charts once price action has exceeded a user’s pre-defined price or ticks range. An example might be an 18 ticks range bar chart on crude oil.
While volume charts rely ONLY on volume, the range bar charts rely ONLY on price action.
Their main advantage over traditional time charts is twofold in my opinion:
If the market is moving fast, reports have come out or there is heavy volume in the market, the traditional 5 minute chart will need 5 minutes to complete the next bar before it provides you with a signal…if you have day traded futures before you know what 5 minutes can do to these markets….The volume charts or range bar charts in this case will complete the bars MUCH faster because there is strong price action and strong volume and will be able to provide a signal faster than the time charts.
On the flip side, there are times when the market is dead…low volume, sideways, choppy action. If you are using the 3 minute chart and a moving avg. cross over, you may get a signal simply because time has passed and the moving averages crossed even though the market is pretty dead….If you are using a volume chart and the market is slow…it will take a while for the bars to complete and hence it may filter out some “noise” in the market.
For some screen shots as well as a free trial to trading signals:

Dear Traders,

A few weeks ago I shared an old article I wrote about trading crude oil futures and one of the blog readers mentioned it was “recycled material”. While I think the info in that article is timeless, the reader was right so I decided to write another article on the topic with tips into day-trading crude oil futures.
