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.

Most of our clients enjoy $500 daytrading margins for the contracts below, depending on the platform and in rare cases market conditions. Few of the trading platforms will use % of overnight margins and/or  if you plan on holding positions more than intraday than note below:

ES was $5,555 –> now $6,105

NQ, $5,720 –> $6,380

YM, $4,620 –> $5,280

RTY, $3,245 –> $3,630

NKD, $4,565 –> $5,280

BE CAREFUL!! THESE ARE NOT “REGULAR OR NORMAL TIMES”

Plan your trade, trade your plan and ALWAYS try to asses the risk/ reward ratio you are about to trade.

Earnings season is under way. Make sure you are aware of major earning announcements.
Another good source for earnings reports by MorningStar. I would have not guessed that we would retrace all the way back after the major sell off/ flash crash we had back in Aug 21st.
