Labor Day is behind us and the summer is officially over according to the trading world…..

Short trading week ahead and keep in mind that the crude oil numbers, which usually come out on Wednesday, will come out on Thursday instead at 10 AM central time.

Also the front month for bonds, metals, financials and most of grains is now December – if you are wondering or need ANY help, feel free to contact us.
I read the following quote over the long weekend and I have been thinking about it off and on and believe the quote is correct:
“Successful traders don’t think on how much they can possibly make from a trade but rather look at the potential risk first”.

A few notes as we head into the last unofficial trading day of the summer…..
Traditionally, in the trading world, the last day before Labor day is considered the last summer trading day…Traders expect more volatility after Labor Day. and for the lower volume we usually experience in August to turn into higher volume when traders return from the long weekend on Tuesday.
Along the way keep in mind:
Tomorrow is also the last trading day of the month, which can get interesting at times.
Front month for Silver, bonds, ten years, grains is now DECEMBER.
We will send a separate note when it is time to rollover the equities which is towards the middle of September.
Next blog will be sent Tuesday afternoon so we would like to wish you a great, relaxing and safe Labor Day!
Labor Day Summary below and full details available here.
