We started out 2023 with a bit better volume across the board and some large moves across different markets.

Still not the volume we saw in the first week of December but as large traders return from holidays the volume will pick up.

We have a busy day tomorrow!

ISM PMI

JOLTS

FOMC Minutes.

If anyone has holidays “hangover” tomorrow should cure that out as I expect some larger moves and higher volatility.

Heads up traders. The holidays are near at hand and with them, holiday trading hours and holiday trading conditions. This year, Christmas falls on a Sunday and Monday the 26th is the designated holiday. So, when the markets close Friday afternoon – at their regular times – the markets will remain closed Sunday night all the way through to their Monday afternoon/evening openings. Ordinarily, trade volume across all asset classes declines into a holiday and this may be augmented due to the extended closures of the markets. It’s advised to keep an eye on your open positions and open orders coming into the Monday afternoon opening.

Christmas 2022 Trading Schedule

New year’s Trading Schedule

We wish you all a safe and joyous holiday!!

 

From the CME Globex Control Center, executive summary:

 

Fri. Dec. 23 = ALL NORMAL closes

 

Mon. Dec. 26 (day) = CLOSED, all mkts.

 

Mon., Dec. 26 (night) = NORMAL opening and pre-opening for all – EXCEPT grains and livestock remain closed.

 

Tues., Dec. 27 = grains and livestock 8:30 a.m. market re-opening.

Please contact your broker if you have any questions about your positions. And remember, the next front month for these contracts – March – is already well traded and available.

Triple Witching + Trading levels for 12.16.2022

START TRADING MARCH CURRENCY FUTURES AS WELL!

Triple Witching

Heads up traders:

Triple Witching is near. For those of you trading stock index futures – any size S&P 500, Nasdaq, Dow Jones, Russell 2000 – remember that this Friday at 8:30 A.M. Central Time, those contracts’ December futures expire and will no longer be available for trading. If you happen to hang on to any Dec. contracts past that time, they will automatically be offset via the cash settlement price of that contract. For you stock index futures options traders, if you to hang on to any Dec. options, the cash settlement price will determine whether your options are in or out of the money, in which case they will either expire worthless or be instantly exercised/assigned, valued and offset by the cash settlement price. Stock options also expire this Friday, thus the triple witching expression (no supernatural phenomena will appear at this time).

 

Final Settlement Procedures

Quarterly settlement of S&P 500, E-mini S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400, E-mini S&P MidCap 400, S&P 500 Citigroup/Growth and Value and SPCTR Index futures and options on futures are based on a Special Opening Quotation of the relevant underlying index. The Special Opening Quotation for each index is based on the opening price of each component stock in that index on expiration Friday.

Special Opening Quotations (SOQ) generally differ from the opening index value of each index because all stocks do not open immediately. For example, on typical days surveyed by CME Group, most S&P stocks open quickly, with around 95% open within 15 minutes and 98% open within 30 minutes. Other indexes with larger numbers of stocks may take longer to open.

 

Please contact your broker if you have any questions about your positions. And remember, the next front month for these contracts – March – is already well traded and available.

    • Important Notices – Rollover

    Rollover is here for stock indices. i.e., the E-mini and Micro S&P, Nasdaq, Dow Jones and Russell 2000.
    I personally start trading MARCH this Monday when the volume on March is higher than the December.
      Volume in the December contracts will begin to drop off until their expiration next Friday, December 16th (8:30 A.M., Central Time). At that point, trading in these contracts halts. Stock index futures are CASH SETTLED contracts. If you hold any December futures contracts through 8:30 A.M., Central Time on Friday, Dec. 16th, they will be offset with the cash settlement price, as set by the exchange.
     Monday, December 19th is Last Trading Day for June currency futures. It is of the utmost importance for currency traders to exit all December futures contracts by Friday, December 16th and to start trading the March futures. Currency futures are DELIVERABLE contracts.
    The month code for March is ‘H.’  Please consider carefully how you place orders when changing over.

    PriceCounts – Not about where we’ve been , but where we might be going next!

The PriceCount study is a tool that can help to project the distance of a move in price. The counts are not intended to be an ‘exact’ science but rather offer a target area for the four objectives which are based off the first leg of a move with each subsequent count having a smaller percentage of being achieved. It is normal for the chart to react by correcting or consolidating at an objective and then either resuming its move or reversing trend. Best utilized in conjunction with other technical tools, PriceCounts offer one more way to analyze charts and help to manage your positions and risk. Learn more at www.qtchartoftheday.com

The performance shown above is hypothetical in that the chart represents returns in a model account. The model account rises or falls by the average single contract profit and loss achieved by clients trading actual money pursuant to the listed system’s trading signals on the appropriate dates (client fills), or if no actual client profit or loss available – by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by the system’s trading signals on that day in real time (real‐time) less slippage, or if no real time profit or loss available – by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by running the system logic backwards on back adjusted data. Please read full disclaimer HERE.

Weekly Newsletter #1123: How is your IRA / 401k doing? + Levels for November 14th 2022

November 11th, 2022 Filed under Commodity Brokers, Commodity Trading, Day Trading, Futures Trading, futures trading education, Weekly Newsletter | Comment (0)

Cannon Futures Weekly Newsletter Issue # 1123

How is your IRA / 401k doing?

When the stock market declines, most retirement accounts lose value. That’s because IRA / 401k investments tend to be largely invested in purchased stocks – via stock mutual funds and/or an assortment of individual stocks.
But, did you know there are investments available for IRA’s and 401k’s that can provide positive returns in both up and down markets? Consider making an inquiry into our selection of automated trading systems that trade stock index futures contracts that track the major stock indexes like the S&P, S&P Midcap, Nasdaq, Dow Jones and Russell 2000.
If you are looking to diversify your current IRA or 401k portfolio with futures trading, but have little time or know-how to pursue things, one great first step would be to explore some of options we offer here at Cannon Trading CO.
Our licensed, experienced brokers are happy to provide feedback any of the automated trading systems from our selection, based on your available risk capital, your risk tolerance, overall financial goals.
Below please find links to some of systems we follow. Some examples of these systems are below for you review. Keep in mind that futures trading is risky and not suitable for everyone.

Futures trading is complex and carries the risk of substantial losses. It is not suitable for all investors. The ability to withstand losses and to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can adversely affect investor returns.

 

Hot Market

Gold futures snapped a downtrend of over a few months when they broke above the 1692 levels this week
Short covering rally along with higher interest rates fueled this market. Bitcoin weakness also helped the yellow metal safe heaven status.
Next possible upside target is 1805.
1692 support must hold.
