Good evening traders, this is Brian with TraderShark.com, an educational website to learn how to trade the emini S&P futures, the Euro futures and the crude futures. Today is Tuesday, September 17, 2013.
The market opened up this morning here at 1692 represented by this white dotted line. We generally don’t trade the first 15 minutes of the day. Coming out of the no trade zone the market continued to grind higher. There was really no opportunities to pull back. 9:50 until 10:10 and right here at about 10:00 had a little bit of a pull back, kind of a head fake prior to a continuation higher. If you don’t get a pullback to break a significant level prior to going into this reversal zone, likelihood is continuation higher.
Our first opportunity to get in to a trade was right here at about 10:13. There’s actually two trades, you had a conservative trade, it went off, it’s called an extended wave trade. And target 1 and target 2, hit for a total of 6 ticks. We then had another extended wave trade here at around 10:30, target 1 and target 2 hit.
And for a longer term, more aggressive trade, we have what’s called a hook pattern, started also at 10:13. Now I traded 3 contracts. First contact got off at 4 ticks. And then the sideways motion got me out right over here. I took both contracts off at 1 tick. So took a total of 6 for the day, 3 trades, 18 ticks.
Now going into 11:30, we have what’s called a no trade zone from 11:30 to 1:15 Eastern Standard Time. And we also have a directional indicator that keeps up on our hands or sitting on the sidelines when you get this sideways motion chop. So in the meantime, going into the closing timeframe, I do want you to notice this, right up into the new trading hours 5:15 Eastern Standard Time, our hook pattern actually hit its target 2 at 1699.50.
Now, we have a special event going on next week. All next week we’re opening up our crude oil Shark Den. I wanted to show you if you’re interested in participating in that.
