The different pulse of the markets on different days makes a big difference. The strategies used on fast and volatile market may not work when the same market is choppy and quieter. I think that maybe there are some rare strategies that will work in all market environments but I have never seen one yet….So be aware of how the market/ markets you are trading are acting.
What type of action did the overnight session had?
How did the first 30 minutes of primary session went ( in markets like stock index futures where the underlying asset, i.e. stocks, just opened)?
Does it seem like the day ahead will be one of those speedy, crazy type of price action? or perhaps choppy? possibly a trending day?
Certain strategies will work better. Know what weapons in your trading arsenal will work better in what type of market conditions and try to adjust accordingly.

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 non conservative. 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.

FOMC Tomorrow & Support and Resistance Levels 7.28.2021

Tomorrow we have FOMC.
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 4325.00 with a stop at 4319.00, instead “stretch the price bands” due to volatility and place an entry order to buy at 4319.75 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!!
