Category Archives: Index Futures

Introduced in the year 1982, Index futures or stock index futures are extremely popular among trading commodities today. While trading, an index future is settled in cash on the value of a certain stock market index. One of the most traded indices is the S&P500.

However, even if you find it tough to comprehend what Index futures are, you can take assistance from the trade experts at Cannon Trading.

We at Cannon Trading want you to understand the basics and the details about Index Futures like our experts do. There are a number of blogs that we list here in our category archive. We recommend that you read these to know for yourself what Index Futures trading is all about.

Stock Index futures are entering the “rollover period”.

Used to be that the Thursday before was the “official rollover day” but last few years more and more traders simply follow the volume and it seems that the volume will go to the next month, in this case December around Monday coming up. We will keep you posted.

For now September has more volume and we will keep posting September levels.

Consistency, Discipline, Expectations

FED raises rates by 75 basis points as widely expected.
market rallied pretty hard in similar fashion to the last FOMC (which was followed by a large sell off after….) Will be interesting to see market and price action during the last two trading days of the week.
On a different topic:
When was the last time you evaluated yourself when it comes to trading?
Are you consistent or do you change methodology every other week?
Are you discipline or as soon as you hit a large losing day you throw away all your rules out the window?
Are you realistic with your expectations or do you really expect to day trade and be profitable every single trading day?
These are just some questions/pointers to help you in this tough journey called trading.
More to follow in the next few blogs.
As always, plan your trade and trade your plan. Please contact your broker or Cannon Trading with any questions.

Rollover Notice + Futures Trading Levels for 6.10.2022

Large sell off today in stock index futures.

Tomorrow we have CPI which is a market moving event.
Also read below regarding rollover notice.

Rollover Notice for U.S. Stock Index and Currency Futures

Heads up traders! We’re approaching important dates on the trading calendar.
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 SEPTEMBER this Monday when the volume on September is higher than the June.
  Volume in the June contracts will begin to drop off until their expiration next Friday, June 17th (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 June futures contracts through 8:30 A.M., Central Time on Friday, June 17th, they will be offset with the cash settlement price, as set by the exchange.
 Monday, June 13th is Last Trading Day for June currency futures. It is of the utmost importance for currency traders to exit all June futures contracts by Friday, June 10 and to start trading the September futures. Currency futures are DELIVERABLE contracts. By holding any June futures contracts through the close of Last Trading Day, you will be subject to delivering (short positions) or taking delivery of (long positions) the full notional value of the futures contract. So, unless you’re sitting on 12,500,000 Japanese Yen to give to the exchange, exit that short position.
The month code for September is ‘U.’  Please consider carefully how you place orders when changing over.

Trading Futures, Options on Futures, and retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors.  You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge, and financial resources.
