Gold Futures

Gold futures in the December contract continued their bearish trend down another $7 this afternoon in New York currently trading at 1,220 an ounce trading far below their 20 & 100 day moving average as I’ve been recommending a short position when gold prices broke 1,278 which was the 4 week low at the time and if you took that recommendation make sure you place your stop above the 10 day high as I think there’s a high probability that prices will retest December 31st 2013th low of 1,186 in the coming months. The U.S dollar continues to make new highs against the foreign currencies which is very pessimistic gold prices also due to the fact that the Federal Reserve is ending quantitative easing as there is very little bullish fundamental news as all the interest currently is in the S&P 500 which is hitting another all-time high so continue to play this to the downside and if you are not in this market on the short side sit on the sidelines and look for any rally to get short while placing your proper stop loss of 2% of your account balance on any given trade.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures have been very volatile in the last couple of weeks as prices are up $.30 this Friday afternoon in New York currently trading at 93.15 a barrel in the October contract as I am now recommending a short position when prices closed below 92.50 earlier in the week while placing your stop loss above the 10 day high which currently stands at 96.00 a barrel risking around $3,500 per contract as the chart structure is awful at the current time but I still do believe that the trend is lower despite the fact that prices traded as low as 90.43 before rallying severely in the last couple of days. Crude oil prices are trading below their 20 & 100 day moving average as the U.S dollar continues to make new highs against the Euro currency and I think that will be the main factor of lower prices, however problems with Iraq in Syria are propping up prices once again but continue to play this to the downside and sell any rally making sure you use the proper stop loss as the 10 day high will start to come down dramatically on a daily basis starting next week so the risk reward situation will be better than it is at the current time. The 10 year note is hitting a 5 week high yielding 2.56% and that is also a negative influence on commodity prices as well as oil as the United States is becoming an exporter as we are not so reliant on Middle East oil and that’s why prices have not been skyrocketing due to the all ISIS nonsense which is now controlling 2 countries.

One of the biggest moments for the markets can come when there is a key news release or fresh fundamental data. Buyers and sellers seem to wrestle with the potential outcome, and in the case of larger announcements, volatility goes through the roof. The problem that I see some traders struggle with is knowing what news to look for, and how to trade it. [Read more...]

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the October contract are currently trading sharply lower this Friday afternoon in New York at 93.10 a barrel after settling last Friday around 96 in an extremely volatile trading week as we had a $3 dollar down move and a $3 dollar up move before selling off once again because of the surging U.S dollar which continues to pressure commodity prices. I am currently sitting on the sidelines after getting stopped out last Friday and if prices break 92.50 I would be recommending another short position while placing your stop loss above the 10 day high of 96 risking around $3.50 per contract or $3,500 risk as the chart structure is very poor currently. Problems with ISIS the terrorist group are not supporting prices as you would think as the world is awash with crude oil supplies as the tug of war continues between the bulls and bears however prices still look very vulnerable to the downside as the trend in the U.S dollar will continue to the upside in my opinion.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures hit a 2 week high today trading up $1.30 a barrel at 95.85 as tensions with Russia continue to prop up prices as I have been recommending a short position but it’s time to move on and look for another market as this trade hit a 10 day high today so if you took my short recommendation it’s time to exit and move on in my opinion. As a trader you must have an exit strategy and my exit strategy is if I’m short I place my stop at the 2 week high so currently sit on the sidelines and wait for a better trend to develop as this trade was disappointing but was pretty neutral but I do believe that over supplies eventually will continue to push prices lower but there is so much chaos going on in the Middle East at this point pushing prices higher so let’s wait for some better chart structure to develop as we might consolidate in the next several weeks so wait for another trend to develop as I like trading the crude oil market because sometimes the risk reward situation is highly in your favor since crude oil is a highly volatile commodity.
TREND: NEUTRAL

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the October contract down are $.30 this Friday afternoon currently trading at $93.60 a barrel finishing down about $1.50 for the trading week and I’m still recommending a short position in crude oil placing your stop above the 10 day high which on Monday’s trade will be at 97.10 risking around $4 or $4,000 per contract as the trend seems to be getting stronger to the downside as the U.S dollar is pressuring commodity prices hitting an 11 month high against the Euro currency this afternoon. The chart structure in crude oil will improve dramatically in the next several days so be patient as prices are still trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average dropping around $12 in the last 3 months as world supplies are extremely large at the current time and my theory states that the United States government wants to hurt Russia and the one way to hurt Russia’s economy is by pressuring oil prices as Russia’s economy is basically based on high energy prices so continue to play this to the downside as I think we will crack $90 a barrel in the next couple of weeks.

Coming Back From a Loss

If you follow our blog, then you are definitely familiar with trader Larry Levin, President of Trading Advantage LLC. We have gotten such a great response from some of his past posts that he has agreed to share one more of his favorite trading tips as a special treat to our viewers. Determining the direction of the market can be tricky and just plain confusing at times, but Larry’s expert opinion keeps it simple.

If you like this article, Larry’s also agreed to give you free access to his weekly trading tip.

A friend of mine in the pit had been having a rough time of late when he asked me a typical question among us traders - How do I come back from a loss? Since he had been having a "rough patch" and not just one bad trade, I gave him the following advice that is to be used over a period of time.

First I asked him, "What does your trading journal look like - or maybe you don't have one?"

He didn't think it was necessary, which was his first mistake. It is critical to keep a trading journal.

In my journal I ask myself everyday "Did I follow my trading plan properly? Did I do anything wrong and if so, why?" If I did follow my plan correctly but I lost money, I am not hard on myself. Sometimes this happens! If I didn't follow my rules but still made money, however, that's a problem.

I highlight these days so I never repeat this fatal flaw. One of the worst things you can do is ignore your rules and make money, because then you feel that "winging it" is a good plan. It is not.

If this happens, you have to ask yourself; "Why didn't I follow my rules?" Was it lack of confidence in the system? Fear? Or did my ego want to be the hero that sold the high?" [Read more...]

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures hit a 5 month low this week in New York finishing higher this Friday afternoon at 96.95 up around $.1.40 as I have been recommending a short position in crude oil for quite some time and if you took that recommendation when the breakout occurred around 98.70 make sure you place your stop at the 10 day low which also stands at 98.70 as prices have been pretty nonvolatile in the last week or so except for Thursday’s trade when oil finished down over $2 as the U.S dollar is pressuring crude oil and many other commodity prices to the downside. The next major level of support is around 94.50 a barrel and if that level is broken I think there’s a possibility prices trade as low as $90 as the U.S government wants oil prices to go lower due to the fact that Russia’s economy relies on high oil prices so if prices drop dramatically Russia’s economy goes in the tank and with all the sanctions against them that could change the current situation with Putin. Crude oil futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average so continue to play this to the downside as the chart structure is outstanding and take advantage of any rally making sure that you use a proper stop loss and proper money management techniques to limit your loss to 2% of your account balance on any given trade.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the September contract finished basically unchanged for the trading week to close around 97.60 and I have been recommending a short position when prices broke 98.70 last week while placing your stop loss now above the 10 day high which is 102.10 risking around $4.00 or $2,000 per contract as the chart structure will improve dramatically in the next 2 days so if you’re lucky enough to get a rally in tomorrow’s trade take advantage will placing the proper stop loss minimizing your risk to 2% of your account balance. Many of the commodity markets were lower again today due to the fact that the U.S dollar hit a new 6 month high and I still do believe that the federal government wants lower oil prices because Russia’s economy is based on high oil prices and there’s no better way to hurt the Russians than push crude oil back down to $80 a barrel so continue to sell this market as I remain bearish. Crude oil futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average with the next major support around 96.50 if that level is broken I think you will retest the March lows of around 94.25 so continue to play this to the downside.
