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.

  • Hot Market of the Week – Feb Gold

Hot market of the week is provided by QT Market Center, A swiss army knife charting package that’s not just for Hedgers, Cooperatives and Farmers alike but also for Spread traders, Swing traders and shorter time frame application for intraday traders with a unique proprietary indicator that can be applied to your specific trading needs.
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
Trading in futures, options, securities, derivatives or OTC products entails significant risks which must be understood prior to trading and may not be appropriate for all investors. Past performance of actual trades or strategies is not necessarily indicative of future results.

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.

This morning at 7:30 A.M., Central Time / 5:30 A.M., Pacific Time, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released its Consumer Price Index Report, which measures the prices paid by consumers for a basket of consumer goods and services.  Instantly, stock index futures experienced EXTREME volatility.  The E-mini $5 Dow Jones futures contract (YMZ22) jumped ±500 points (a ±$2,600 per contract move) in less than 10 seconds. The E-mini S&P 500 futures contract (ESZ22) jumped ±100 points (a ±$5,000 per contract move) within that same short span of time.

What happened?  We wrote about this topic in detail a few weeks ago.  Read More!

If you are a day trader, make sure to check your calendar for when these important reports will occur.  Not being prepared may result in severely consequential results for your trades and your account.

Check out the 10-second chart below showing today’s market movement.

Also tomorrow is Veteran’s Day.   While banks are closed, the futures markets will be open regular hours.

Plan your trade and trade your plan.

Pay Attention to the Road Signs While Trading + Trading Levels 10.27.2022

Pay Attention to the Road Signs…..

by Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker

Please be aware of the potential for the market you’re trading to react suddenly and forcefully in terms of price change. The most common catalyst is one typically staring right at you on your calendar of government and private reports. “Core” economic reports likely take center stage for stock indexes and treasuries. Currently that list includes measurements on the U.S. employment rate, inflation (CPI, PPI) business and consumer confidence and the like. Markets closely tied to the global economy like crude oil and its products, precious metals (gold & silver), industrial metals (copper, platinum) and currencies also react to U.S. reports. The U.S. is well on through its grain harvesting season when regional yields are being closely monitored and compiled to produce the totals that will be combined with the rest of the world’s production. At the same time, important southern hemisphere crops – particularly in South America – are just developing and estimates on their contribution to the world’s grain demands are being watched by the “big three” futures contracts on the CBOT: corn, wheat and soybeans.

Last but not least, earnings…..take a look at what happened yesterday on the NQ and MNQ right at the close of the cash market in stocks ( below is a 10 seconds chart – yes, TEN SECONDS…):

The above chart is an example of mostly “good signals”. Like any other concept, this model has “failed signals” as well and it is always MUCH easier to explain and review any method looking back after the fact then when one is trading live money in real time. Please read disclaimer below as it is VERY appropriate.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.

ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NO INVOLVE FINACIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETLEY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
