Opinion: You’re Not Going To Die!

Posted by John Doherty on January 24, 2020

I should say, you’re probably not going to die today...

Every few years or so, the CDC comes out and absolutely terrifies the American public with a new killer disease warning. Right now it’s a particular strain of Coronavirus coming out of China. Symptoms of Coronavirus are very similar to those of the common cold; runny nose, fever, cough, sore throat, often leading to pneumonia, and it’s spread through direct contact with an infected person.

The Best Indicators the Coach's Use to Trade!

Posted by TopstepTrader on January 22, 2020

What's Right for the Goose...

The debate rages on. What’s the best indicator to use for trading futures? The answer is, there isn’t one. Are some better than others? For sure. It also greatly depends on what products you’re trading. If you’re tracking markets that rely heavily on fundamental factors for volatility, such as grains and meats, you would probably want to look at more time and price based indicators. If more technically reliant markets are your thing, like stocks and bonds, then pivots and oscillators might be more in your wheelhouse.

Trump Impeachment Takes Center Stage - Quick Reference Trial Calendar

Posted by John Doherty on January 20, 2020

Kicking off the week with the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday may leave some trader’s feeling a bit lethargic. There’s been a lot of time off so far this year. Three weeks into 2020 and there have only been 12 full trading days. I will even go so far as to say a good amount of traders haven’t even started back at it yet.

It’s possible that this trend may continue through the week, but we still want to keep you as informed as possible of upcoming market events.

Are You Trying To Pick Tops?

Posted by John Doherty on January 13, 2020

I went out on a limb during Monday morning’s Market Forecast video by saying that the January Break started with the poor jobs report Friday. It was my first contribution to the daily video, and since it wasn’t a very good call, hopefully it won’t be my last. In hindsight, coming out swinging on my first day telling people to short the S&P probably wasn’t the best way to kick things off.

On a quiet news day, a thin-to-win type of trading environment took over, and before the noon hour struck (Central Time) my early call for a pullback was turned to dust. Even though the S&P 500 futures didn't print a new high until near the close, I don’t feel vindicated in the least bit. I know I’m toast on this one. The old adage that says you should “never short a quiet market” rings as true today as the first day it was written.
