Trading Resource of the Week : Futures Hedging Self Study Guide!

Self-Study Guide to Hedging with Grain and Oilseed Futures and Options. Regardless if you are a farmer, rancher or simply looking to trade grains and livestock futures, this guide will help you understand the ins and outs of trading and hedging using futures and options.

 

 

 

  • Hot Market of the Week – March Copper
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.
March Copper
March copper completed its first upside PriceCount objective and has settled into a range bound trade. IF the chart can resume its rally with new sustained highs, it would project a possible run to the second count in the 4.03 area, consistent with a challenge of the August high.
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.

FOMC Rate Decision Tomorrow +Futures Trading Levels 12.13.2023

March is front month for stock indices.

Symbol for March is H, so example ESH24

 

FOMC Rate decision tomorrow.

The following are my PERSONAL OPINION 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
  • The rate announcement comes out exactly at 1 PM central. As of this morning there is a 98% chance of no change in rates.
  • Traders will pay EXTRA attention to the language and the Q&A which starts at 1:30 PM Central

 

  • Be patient and be disciplined

 

  • If in doubt, stay out!!

Mini SP ( March contract) one possible outlook is below using the daily chart and QT Market Center platform.

Plan your trade and trade your plan.

The March WheatCorn spread accelerated to its third upside PriceCount objective to the $1.52 area and is consolidating its trade. At this point, IF the chart can resume its rally with new sustained highs, we are left with the low percentage fourth count to aim for around $2.27 which would be consistent with a challenge of the summer high.
PriceCounts – Not about where we’ve been , but where we might be going next!

NFP non Farm Payrolls tomorrow!

This is a market moving event right at 7:30 Am central that in the past generated some large and volatile moves.

I personally like to be flat 2 minutes before and resume trading a few minutes after the report is out.

If you have notes from previous NFP, now is the time to review…if you don’t have notes, time to start a trading journal and keep notes in it!

10 Minutes chart of the ES, mini SP500 from last NFP, Nov. 3rd below for your review.

Plan your trade and trade your plan.
