To successful trading,
Good evening traders, this is Brian with TraderShark.com, an educational website to learn how to trade the emini S&P futures. Today is Thursday, September 6th, 2012.
We had the employment situation come out, which was better than expected. And the jobless claims, which was within consensus range. And also Draghi had come out from Greece indicating that they were going to purchase a larger portion of the bonds back. Regardless of how the news report affected us, we had gapped up by over 8 points. With a gap of that size we were simply looking for 1 opportunity to pull back.
The market opened up here at 1411. Our first pullback opportunity right here at about 9:54. Some people did not want to trade going into a news announcement. And I understand that. However, we don’t trade 3 minutes prior to a news report. This was 6 minutes prior to a news report. We got into this trade at 1418.25 and held on. We had a trailing stop for the remaining part of the day. And notice how we just continue the gradual uptrend. Working our way until we exited here at 1427.50. That was 9.25 points or 37 ticks with 1 contract.
We had one trader stayed in the trade all the way up into the next Shark band. We had a Shark band up here between 1430 and 1431. Once it hit 1431 we knew we were pretty much at the highs of the day. And a little pullback. But it stayed at the highs of the day into the close.
