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.

No two Bull or Bear markets are alike. This pandemic is similar to 1918 (post WW1), which originated in China, unfortunately killing 50 million globally. The pent up demand led to the Roaring 20’s, which is the cycle we’re presently in. With the FED all in with unprecedented stimulus, we could see a 8-9% GDP number!
Q.E. is $120 billion a month, coupled
with the 3 stimulus packages and the new $2.2 trillion infrastructure in the pipeline. Also, the FED is allowing inflation to run hot, above their 2% target, using a weak US$, as its main catalyst. Lastly, the SHORT END may remain untouched for 2 years.
Eventually, the FED will lose control of the LONG END of the curve!
Future CAVEAT, is that we all know how the Roaring 20’s ended on Oct. 29, 1929.

It’s that time of the year where June contract is the front month for all stock indices/ currencies/ financials and other markets!
Rollover!!
Tomorrow we have FOMC.
Normally the volatility is around the actual rate cut/increase….This time it is 99.99% of no change. Language in the statement will be the main feature.
However, FOMC days do have unique behavior and this time my guess is, it will be around the language used after the announcement.
The following are my PERSONAL 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 3925.00 with a stop at 3919.00, instead “stretch the price bands” due to volatility and place an entry order to buy at 3919.75 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.
·    Keep in mind statement comes out at 1 Pm Central time, the news conference which dissects the language comes out 30 minutes later so the volatility window stretches out.
·    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!!

Why Use Tick & Volume Charts, Mini NQ Review and Support & Resistance Levels 2.23.2021

Why I like to use tick and volume charts for scalping
Today I decided to touch more on an educational feature rather than provide a certain market outlook.
Many of my clients and blog readers know that when it comes to short term trading I am a fan of using volume charts, tick charts, range bar charts and Renko charts rather than the traditional time charts like the 1 minutes, 5 minutes etc.
My rule of thumb is that if you as a trader make decisions based on charts that are less than 15 minutes time frame, it may be worth your time to research, back test and do some homework as to potentially using other type of charts like volume charts , Range charts etc.
Volume charts will draw a new bar once a user defined number of contracts traded. Example mini SP 10,000 volume chart will draw a new bar once 10,000 contracts traded.
Range bar charts will draw new charts once price action has exceeded a user pre define price or ticks range. Example might be an 18 ticks range bar chart on crude oil.
While the volume charts rely ONLY on volume, the range bar charts rely ONLY on price action.
Their main advantage over traditional time charts is twofold in my opinion:
1. If the market is moving fast, reports came out or there is heavy volume in the market, the traditional 5 minute chart will need 5 minutes to complete the next bar before it provides you with a signal…if you day traded futures before you will know what 5 minutes can do….The volume charts or range bar charts in this case will complete the bars MUCH faster because there is strong price action and strong volume and will be able to provide a signal faster than the time charts.
2. On the flip side, there are times when the market is dead…low volume, sideways, choppy action. If you are using the 3 minute chart and a moving avg. cross over, you may get a signal simple because time has passed and the moving averages crossed even though the market is pretty dead….If you are using a volume chart and the market is slow…it will take a while for the bars to complete and hence it may filter out some “noise” in the market.
Below is a 5,000 CVB ( constant volume Bar) of the NQ. If you like a free trial to the “turning points indicators” highlighted in the charts below or to discuss more in depth different charts and strategies, feel free to visit us!
