Hello Traders,

For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

 In the last few days we witnessed “summer trading” with low volume which encouraged me to share the following with you on the different types of trading days:

  • In my opinion there are 3 main types of trading days.

1. The most common day are two sided trading action with swings up and down – this type of trading day is most suitable for using support and resistance levels along with overbought/oversold indicators.

2. Strong trending days, mostly one directional – this type of trading day is the least common, many times will happen on Mondays and maybe 3-5 times a month at most – this type of trading day is most suitable for using ADX, MACD crossovers and pretty much looking for pullbacks to jump on the trend.

3. Slow and/or choppy trading days – this type of trading day is best suited for taking small profits from the market by looking at volume spikes, using stochastics as possible entry signals and usually wait for a pullback before jumping in.

  • A good question I’ve been asked is how can one asses what type of trading day we will have while the market is still trading….I have been doing some work in finding the answers and will be happy to hear feedback via email but here are some initial observations:
    1. Was the overnight session a wide, two sided trading range? If the answer is yes, good chances for similar trading day during the primary session (primary session is when the cash/stock market is open)
    2. Mondays have the highest chance for trending days
    3. The behavior of the first hour of trading can also suggests the type of action for the rest of the day.
    4. If the first 30 minutes of the trading day have good volume, better chances for type 1 or type 2 trading days.
    5. Low volume during the first 30 minutes can suggest a choppy (type 3 trading day)

FRONT MONTH FOR EQUITIES AND BONDS IS DECEMBER

SYMBOL FOR DECEMBER IS Z

We started the new week, right where we left off. With volatile moves in both directions.

I am sharing my daily Dec. mini Russell 2000 chart with you below.. It seems that at times, the Russell 2000 index has been the leader in the moves of the general stock market. We are currently in a very wide range (volatility definitely expands the “bands”) 739 on top and 654 below.

We are currently closer to the bottom level, hence we may see some more upside before we see sellers step back in. In all honesty, I do NOT have a strong feel for the market right now and do NOT have a preferred way of trading it based on swing or overnight time frame. When I do have a better feel or direction, i will be happy to share with you.

Monthly Job Report May Move the Markets | Support and Resistance Levels

Monthly unemployment is sure to move the market tomorrow morning…the big question is which way and to be honest , I have no idea…..

i am getting mixed signals from the chart perspective and there is a case both for the bulls and the bears.

The bulls need to hold above 1183.00 and break above 1215.75

The bears need to break below 1183.00 to have a shot at the 1142.50 level.

I am sure we can see wild and wide swings when the report comes out tomorrow morning before cash open and through out the trading session as large traders will try to square their positions ahead of the long, Labor day weekend.

When is doubt, stay out until you have a clearer picture of what you think the market will do.

See the Labor Day Holiday Trading Hours at our weekly newsletter.
