Indices News & Information on Cannon Trading

Indices

Category Archives: Indices

A plural of indexes, indices is a term often used in the markets. There are different indexes or indices in the markets and these don’t always move up or down in coordination. Indexed moving in tandem would create redundancy meaning that we don’t need more than one of them.

The Dow and the S&P500 are two extremely noteworthy as well as popular indices. While a change in the Dow indicated that the expectations of the investors have changed with regard to the risks and earnings of large companies, the S&P500 features 500 of the most highly traded stocks in the U.S.

Each index is different from another and each one behaves differently. You won’t find any one index that has continued to look the same over the years. Moreover, every index depicts a different thing. You can gain a deeper understanding into the world of indices.

We at Cannon Trading help you by providing the latest information on indices and their market performance. You can read it all here under one archive tagged as Indices. Read and be informed.

FOMC tomorrow and the markets are expecting NO CHANGE in rates tomorrow, however, traders will pay close attention in an attempt to predict future hikes the rest of 2023.

The following are suggestions on trading during FOMC days:

 

·    Reduce trading size

·    Be extra picky = no trade is better than a bad trade

·    Choose entry points wisely. Look at longer time frame support and resistance for entry. Take the approach of entering at points where you normally would have placed protective stops. Example, trader x looking to go long the mini SP at 4425.00 with a stop at 4419.00, instead “stretch the price bands” due to volatility and place an entry order to buy at 4419.75 and place a stop a few points below in this hypothetical example ( consider current volatility along with support and resistance levels).

·    Expect the higher volatility during and right after the announcement

·    Expect to see some “vacuum” ( low volume, big zigzags) right before the number.

·    Consider using automated stops and limits attached to your entry order as the market can move very fast at times.

·    Know what the market was expecting, learn what came out and observe market reaction for clues

·    Be patient and be disciplined

·    If in doubt, stay out!!

Quadruple Witching + Levels for Sept. 15th 2023

What you need to know before trading futures on Sept. 15th

by Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker:

 

For those of you trading stock index futures and options, remember that tomorrow is Last Trading Day for the September stock index futures contracts and their quarterly options.  At 8:30 A.M., Central Time, the September contracts will stop trading and the CME will post a settlement price which will serve to offset any open September futures positions.  It will also determine the status of the contracts’ options – whether they’re in or out of the money.  Note that this does not apply to Friday Week-3 options tied to the December futures contracts.  Those expire at their usual afternoon time.

 

Tomorrow is nicknamed quadruple witching which refers to the simultaneous expiration of not only stock index futures and options, but also stock options and single-stock futures, which actually ceased trading in 2020 – and was never a much of asset class in the U.S. since their arrival in 2002. 

 

The new front month for the major stock index futures contracts is now December.

 

For currency futures traders, Monday is an even more important date on the calendar.  It’s also Last Trading Day for these futures contracts, however these contracts are true deliverables.  Instead of receiving a settlement price with which your open positions will be offset, your open long or short positions will be exchanged for actual cash-based positions in the type of currency your position represents.  For example, if you hold a single September British Pound futures contract through Last Trading Day, you will be assigned a short cash position of futures contract’s value of 62,500£, the current U.S. dollar value of which is ±$77,500.

 

The long and short of it (pun intended), keep a very close eye on the calendar and steer well clear of becoming contractually obligated to deliver or take delivery of a futures contract’s underlying asset.

 

If you have any questions regarding any of the futures contracts you’re trading and those important dates n the calendar, reach out to your broker at Cannon Trading Co. 

Rollover is here for stock indices. i.e., the E-mini and Micro S&P, Nasdaq, Dow Jones and Russell 2000

 

Volume in the September contracts will begin to drop off until their expiration Friday, September 15th (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 September futures contracts through 8:30 A.M., Central Time on Friday, Sept. 15th, they will be offset with the cash settlement price, as set by the exchange.

 Monday, September 18th is Last Trading Day for September currency futures. It is of the utmost importance for currency traders to exit all September futures contracts by Friday, September 15th and to start trading the December futures. Currency futures are DELIVERABLE contracts.

The month code for December is ‘Z.’  Please consider carefully how you place orders when changing over.
