E-mini- Technical Turnaround Tuesday?

E-mini- Technical Turnaround Tuesday?

Yesterday Monday the S&P500 mini-futures, the ES, continued moving down extending the weakness we saw in Friday’s closing movement. It spent most of the day in decline, and only the now customary 3:00 pm ramp-a-thon moved it off the lows and allowed it to close respectably, at 2090.50, eight points below the previous close. It also closed below the 20/40-day moving averages. The one ray...

SPX -What Monday's Drop Tells US

SPX -What Monday's Drop Tells US

In the 07/20/15 Trader Planet article, I mentioned that we had some bullish sentiment extremes and to expect lower. The SPX proceeded to drop 70 points in 7 days and made a low with some bearish sentiment extremes and now remains in a neutral trading environment when looking through an investor sentiment window. The SPX has been trading within the 2040-2134 range for the last 3 months and...

10-Year Treasury Note Faces Stiff Resistance

10-Year Treasury Note Faces Stiff Resistance

We’ve begun to notice an anomaly within the interest rate futures where the volatility of the 10-Year Treasury Note is significantly higher than both shorter and longer dated maturities. Rather than attempting to answer why this may be, we’d rather focus on the trading opportunity it presents both within the interest rate sector and as an outright speculative trade. First, let’s look at some...

The Dow And Emerging Markets ETF EEM

The Dow And Emerging Markets ETF EEM

This week’s commentary takes a look at emerging markets but first a review of the most recent Hybrid Lindsay forecast for the Dow Industrials index. The July 27 commentary (US Stocks Are Near A Low: Here's Why) mentioned the official forecast for a low in the period July 24-31 but also explained why “a tradable low is very close”. Indeed, last week’s low was seen that day.  The next...

US Stocks: Trade From The Long Side

US Stocks: Trade From The Long Side

In my last market update (7/20) I characterized the 300+ point rally in the NQ as “unsustainable.” My initial target was 4492 and we hit 4497 on 7/28. This downside forecast was not due to any particular bearishness on my part. By nature, I’m actually more bullish than bearish, and in my own trading I prefer to trade from the long side. Nevertheless, the Volume Profile chart showed very...

US Stocks: Fear Index Is At Record Lows

US Stocks: Fear Index Is At Record Lows

There goes July. Did anybody notice? June started high and ended low. July started low and ended high. Except for the color of the candles on the chart, there wasn’t much to chose between them ... and not much to remember them by. The US equity market, at least as represented by the Standard and Poor 500  (SPX), has now spent the first seven months of the year drifting along near the top of...

Trading Psychology: Avoid The Prediction Trap

Trading Psychology: Avoid The Prediction Trap

When I sit down to write for TraderPlanet, I typically mull over things that have occurred the same day in my coaching practice. It seems the fresher the experience, the more easily it can be milked for a few drops of insight. Tonight I had the pleasure of working with an aspiring futures trader, a corporate pilot by day who has dreams of retiring from flying and leveraging his navigational...

US Stocks: Brace For Potential Short Squeeze

US Stocks: Brace For Potential Short Squeeze

The Street assumed that the Fed's silence on raising interest rates in 2015 means no rate hike this year. That may not be true, but it put the S&P500 mini-futures (ES) back into a bullish cycle and helped it hold the price above the key 2100 psychology line. The futures pretty much duplicated Wednesday’s action: dropped sharply from the overnight high and made a low one point above...

How To Profit In Thin Liquidity Environment

How To Profit In Thin Liquidity Environment

It is a fact that liquidity in the markets has been decreasing for some time now. This is not just a feature of the holiday period, but certainly is more noticeable between mid July to around the third week in August. Thinning liquidity is in part due to the over mature long term cycle we are finding ourselves in.   Banks cannot trade as they used to due to tightening of regulations, low...

US Stocks Poised For Follow Through Gains

US Stocks Poised For Follow Through Gains

The S&P500 mini-futures opened flat yesterday, but came to life as the day got closer to the Fed interest rate announcement at 2:00 p.m. After some wide fast moves, the futures settled down and closed at 2101.50, above the important 2100 level for the first time since this decline began, and about 14 points above the prior close. A good day for the Bulls. The impetus for this irrational...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
