Hello Traders,

Many clients have asked me over the years: “what other markets do you like for day-trading?” and my answer includes markets like gold, us bonds and crude oil.

Crude Oil is one of these markets that can reward and/or punish day traders very quickly….It is a volatile market and if you are a trader that refuses to use stops….then this is defintely NOT your market for day-trading.

Crude Oil inventories come out weekly on Wednesdays at 9:30 Central time.

This report has a large impact on Crude Oil prices.

Below you will see an intra day chart from todays session reflecting price action during this report.

On a different note, we are now in stock earnings season, which will affect stock index futures price action.
