No Surprises From Yellen, But E-Mini S&P 500 Still Vulnerable

No Surprises From Yellen, But E-Mini S&P 500 Still Vulnerable

There weren’t any surprises in Wednesday’s FOMC announcement, but it did leave us a little room for debate. Policy rates remained the same (.25%), and the taper will continue, reducing asset purchases by $10 billion to $15 billion per month. The Fed expects to end the bond purchase program next month, which would appear to be step one towards a change in interest rates. As it has been with...

Institutional Traders Use Pivot Points: Here's Why

Back in mid July I wrote that the S&P 500 (SPX) was close to major resistance at the Yearly R1 pivot point at 1990.

I knew that the big banks, market makers and Algos all use pivot points. Most professional traders use daily and weekly...

Strangle Gold Into The Fed Announcement

Gold may drop to $1,200 an ounce, possibly breaching that level to test last December’s low at the 1183 area, thanks to a resurgent U.S. dollar and higher Treasury yields on expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve could signal tighter policy this week. Big Picture Spot gold staged a modest comeback in Asia on Tuesday Sept 16, rising back above $1,236 after hitting an eight-month low of...

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.
