Dear Traders,

Starting June 28, 2021, CME Group has removed the trading halt between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m. CT on CME Globex for Equity Index products.
This enhancement will allow market participants to access liquidity continuously throughout the trading day and manage event risk that occurs during the trading session with greater ease.
Tomorrow is also the last trading day of the month!
Last trading days and first trading days of the months will at times have unique characteristics. Possible larger moves, sharper turns, higher volume.
Large traders/ funds will try to “close the books for the month”, book profits or losses etc.
Do you homework, go over notes from your journal, study the charts from prior last/ first trading days and be prepared.

Dear Traders,

Starting today, June 28, 2021, CME Group has removed the trading halt between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m. CT on CME Globex for Equity Index products.
This enhancement will allow market participants to access liquidity continuously throughout the trading day and manage event risk that occurs during the trading session with greater ease.
Subject to regulatory review and effective June 28, 2021, CME and CBOT will eliminate the 3:15 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Central Time (CT) trading halt on CME Globex which currently exists for certain Equity futures and options contracts.
The halt was initially implemented to account for transactions conducted via open outcry in the trading pits and is therefore no longer necessary.
June is almost over and just like that next week is 4th of July and the beginning of what we consider “summer trading”…
Summer trading USUALLY = less volume, narrower ranges but also larger moves on certain reports.
Below is a video I put together a few years ago on trading using overbought and oversold conditions – still very valid in m opinion.

30 Year Treasury Notes (ZB) 120min Chart & Futures Levels 12.03.2020

Each market has a different personality, different behavior along with different times of the day when it is most active. If you are finding that the ES (mini SP) is not giving you enough risk/opportunities then start monitoring a couple of other markets and perhaps explore them in demo / simulated mode.
I think that there are more than a few markets that are suitable for day-trading. Below you will find some observations, tips along with what are unique about these markets, personality and most active trading hours (interest rates, mostly the ten year and 30 year).
In most platforms, the symbols are ZB for 30 year bonds and ZN for 10 year notes.
Product Symbol
ZB
Contract Size
The unit of trading shall be U.S. Treasury Bonds having a face value at maturity of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) or multiples thereof
Price Quotation
Points ($1,000) and 1/32 of a point. For example, 134-16 represents 134 16/32. Par is on the basis of 100 points.
Product Symbol
ZN
Underlying Unit
One U.S. Treasury note having a face value at maturity of $100,000.
Deliverable Grades
U.S. Treasury notes with a remaining term to maturity of at least six and a half years, but not more than 10 years, from the first day of the delivery month. The invoice price equals the futures settlement price times a conversion factor, plus accrued interest. The conversion factor is the price of the delivered note ($1 par value) to yield 6 percent.
Price Quote
Points ($1,000) and halves of 1/32 of a point. For example, 126-16 represents 126 16/32 and 126-165 represents 126 16.5/32. Par is on the basis of 100 points.
Tick Size
(minimum fluctuation)
One-half of one thirty-second (1/32) of one point ($15.625, rounded up to the nearest cent per contract), except for intermonth spreads, where the minimum price fluctuation shall be one-quarter of one thirty-second of one point ($7.8125 per contract).
Contract Months
The first five consecutive contracts in the March, June, September, and December quarterly cycle.
These contracts are often affected by many of the economic reports that come out at 8:30 AM Eastern and there is very active volume between the hours of 8 AM EST and 3 PM EST
Volume on both contracts is very good. Ten years will often have 1 million contracts traded per day (might be the second most active US futures market after the mini SP 500) and the bonds will avg. around 300,000 contracts.
These markets can experience very volatile movements during and right after different reports but then will often trade smooth or in an intraday trend the rest of the day.
Spread traders may find some interesting strategies trading the ZB/ZN spread or what I refer to as the 30/10 and some call NOB spread ( notes over bonds).
120 minute chart of the ZB or 30 yr bonds for observation below.
