It feels like a new world out there in so many ways. Trading is one as well….This is a TOTALLY different markets than what we witnessed 6-8 weeks ago, a year ago etc.
Know the rules, understand current margins, know where the circuit breakers are/ limit moves.
CONFIRM MARGINS WITH YOUR BROKER, margins are function of volatility, platform, exchange overnight and other factors and during this volatility, margins can change so if you are not sure – check with your broker!
Figure out your max risk.
After you do all that, feel free to trade but jumping in and trying to trade without the basic knowledge above is like jumping into a stormy ocean without a life vest…..
Here are some EXCELLENT resources to help you navigate these volatile times:
Yesterday I wrote: YM – The Mini Dow Jones, sitting on a junction level. Break below yesterdays’ lows can confirm a sell signal you see on the chart as red square. Failure to do so, will signal a short term upside bounce. Today’s low was 26586 – previous day lows was 2584!! Still watching…..

Knowing What You Don’t Know
Every trader has done it. You’ve done it, your friends have done it, even your broker has done it at one point early in their career.
Here’s the scenario:
You’ve finally finished your futures education at Cannon Trading Company. You’ve done you’re homework on stops, limits, indicators and price movements for the market you’re trading. You’re ready to go, you enter your limit order and you wait.
**DING**
You get filled. Your heart rate picks up, a wry smile crosses your face and you begin to imagine the possibilities of the one trade you’re in: How much can I make? How much can I lose before it’s too much? You’ve waited through months of technical trading and deep meditation to get here, and now it’s finally paying off with one of your first trades in the live market. Sayonara paper trading; aloha live futures.
Then, all of a sudden, the top of the hour hits and the market starts acting up. It’s getting more volatile and more volatile; it’s picking up speed and taking an unforgiving turn against you. You can’t think straight, all you can think about is your losing position that could get worse and worse as the seconds go by. You race to put in a stop order, but you finally have to settle for a market order just to stop the bleeding. You stare.
**DING**
YM – The Mini Dow Jones, sitting on a junction level. Break below yesterdays’s lows can confirm a sell signal you see on the chart as red square. Failure to do so, will signal a short term upside bounce.

Trading 101: 5 Big Mistakes Beginners Should Avoid Making
Trading Futures Is A Tough Business, But If You Are One Of The Very Few That Can Succeed, This Could Be A Lucrative Business As Well
I have seen quite a bit since I became a broker in 1998. Some war stories to share about the markets, some crazy moves and much more in between. I was trading futures with clients on the sad Sept. 11th 2001 day when the planes hit and the markets were plunging before they were closed for almost a week. I witnessed the meat contracts making limit up and limit down moves over the years and much more…..
As a commodity broker I have observed MANY traders, many of them were new traders, and this allows me to share with you some valuable observations I hope will help you start your futures trading journey on a much smoother road than most.
Here are the FIVE CRUCIAL MISTAKES you need to avoid!
I shared the Mini SP 500 chart below this past Friday on our weekly newsletter. You can see the chart and outlook provided last week HERE.
Below is the updated chart after today’s price action for your review – click here to enlarge image.
3308 is now first resistance above. 3127 major support below as well as the 3180’s level which were the lows at the end of July.

Quadruple witching tomorrow….
Futures, futures options, stock options and single stocks all expire tomorrow morning right on the open of the stock market.
Keep in mind that September mini SP and it’s relatives ( mini Dow, mini Nasdaq etc.) EXPIRE tomorrow and cash settle based on special settlement price….Markets can get volatile tomorrow morning right before and around the open.
The September contract will simply cease to trade. If you have not switched to December yet, now is the time…..
Know the rules, understand current margins, know where the circuit breakers are/ limit moves.
Figure out your max risk.
After you do all that, feel free to trade but jumping in and trying to trade without the basic knowledge above is like jumping into a stormy ocean without a life vest…..
The path for USD has been rocky since its highs of mid-March, but the degree of rockiness depends on the path you’re taking. Continued complications around Brexit have now sent the pound (GBP) lower against the dollar on the year, while the euro’s (EUR) take on this news has been mostly bullish. Then there’s the yen (JPY) that is trying to find out what exactly Japan’s new prime minister, Yoshihide Suga, might mean for the BOJ.
Euro-Pound Push and Pull
If the trend around Brexit continues, then the pound and euro will cancel each other out and leave little in the way of a US Dollar reaction; and the same goes for this one-off news story that’s specific to Japan and its currency. So what will move the dollar?
What Will Move the Dollar?
Interest rates are still hugging 0%, which makes the next move either into negative territory or higher to normal ranges. Those thinking the former is in play might look at a bearish Small US Dollar (SFX) futures position, while those in the latter group could employ their ideas by trading the dollar from the long side. Finally, the upcoming election creates potential for USD movement. The election of Donald Trump, a republican, on November 8, 2016, was met by a 1% rally in the dollar the following day and a 6% rise for the rest of the year. SFX could see some volatility as November nears.
