To Successful Trading,

Good evening traders, this is Brian with TraderShark.com, an educational website on how to trade the emini S&P futures. Today is Monday August 25th 2014. Let’s go and start out by telling you about a Webinar we have coming up here at TraderShark.com. We are sponsoring Rande Howell, “Master the Emotions of Money and Loss of Trading.” Go to the Website TraderShark.com. Go ahead and click over the Home tab and you will see the next Webinar Guest, click on that. You will see a little bio and brief description of Rande. This is this coming Wednesday at 4:30, it is about a 45 minute presentation. Click here to register, it tells you a little about Rande. We are also going to have a free Webinar coming up that following Friday, I’ll get that link up here shortly. This morning, the market opened up at 1996 represented by this white dotted line. We’re awful close to that 2000 mark and you know that we are going to gravitate up there gradually whether it is today or into the week. So a lot of people are looking to go long into that high, but new home sales came in below consensus range this morning, so that is a bearish signal or shot across the bow if you will. Let’s go and check this out. From 9:30 and 9:45, we generally call that a no trade zone. Just coming out of the 9:45 time frame heading up till you get short and got stopped out for a minus 4 ticks. I took minus 4 ticks and moved my stock up at a standard trade setup would have gone in T1, and I got stopped at minus 2 ticks. Continuing into the morning we have a news report at 10 o’clock, the new home sales and notice we we’re trying get into a long position, not just because of the news itself being bearish but because of the trade setup we had in the moment going in to our favor. New opportunity to get in here right about 10:17 or so and another opportunity if you want to add on positions. Rode a little bit of a pullback for continuation. And then as we move on there is another opportunity get in this little pullback, got out just based on market internal indicator got me out a little bit early no big deal, first contract was 2 ticks, 2nd contract was 2 ticks. We had a very low volume starting out the day so if you have a lower volume day you want to have to your targets just a little bit tighter, your stops ends tighter. As we work our way in the next no trade zone, actually this is called a lunch time trading zone from so from 11:30 to 1:15 Eastern Standard Time, some traders choose to trade in this time frame, if you did, nice beautiful setups to the downside but for those traders in there, trading in the no trading zone, we are going to review more on that. Working our way sideways, you can see at 96, back up at the opening price and that was pretty much it for the day. So please feel free to join us, this Wednesday at 4:30 for Rande Howells presentation, I think you’ll enjoy it. And on Friday, we are going to have a free day in the shark den.
