Lack of Energy taking a bite out of AAPL?

Here’s a Short E-Mini Futures Trade Right Out of the Gate

In today’s video I outline a short trade set up in the E-Mini S&P 500 futures contract which turned out to be quite nice. It had a very low risk to reward ratio when first putting on the trade to the down side, so I thought I would take you through the entire trade to show you what this type of low risk trade looks like. I typically use logical profit objectives combined with a trailing stop on a portion of any trade set up, but in this instance I decided to trail the stop because I know large moves can occur in the first half hour of trading. The short took place at 1373.50 and I was eventually stopped out down at 1363.25, not too bad of a trade starting off the trading week. I hope this helps in your own trading.

E-Mini S&P 500 Futures Trades Hits Profit Objectives

What I wanted to do on this quick video is to recap yesterday and to explain in a little bit more detail so you could mirror this type of set up in your own trading. I yearn for these types of trades and I’m constantly looking for them. As you can see in this video the second profit objective of 1386.75 (a 16 point profit) was hit in the overnight trading session. This type of trade is generally a 2 to 4 day trade when taken off a daily chart, but in this particular trade these two profit objectives were hit on the same day, not too bad. Hope this helps you in your trading and have a profitable trading day and great weekend!

The More Things Change … Or Do They?

Hi, Friends, here’s hoping that all is going well. It was a little nasty to have the non-farm payrolls number released on a day when cash equities were closed, but it was pretty clear that we were going to have a fairly severe downdraft today. As I look at the daily chart of the SPX, […]
