Stop/ losses

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With Trump announcing decision; on Mexican tariffs last night, FTSE likely to rise steeply on Monday 

Am short on 7333 is it worth setting a stop loss at (say) 7350 over the weekend, or will just sail through?

If it was me i would considering hedge using weekend FTSE

But if it was me i had probably used a guaranteed stop over the weekend with this Mexican thing going on 

Worst case scenario? a gap up when futures reopen and then down to close the gap?

I see the weekend ftse is only 20 points up after the close, the markets did hear about the tariff introduction being delayed earlier in the afternoon but it didn't become official so to speak till after close. It first appeared on twitter immediately after the NFP release and caused that kick back up on the indices charts.

Difficult to know how the chart will play out, certainly keep an eye on the ftse weekend chart and consider @Kodiak's suggestion of a hedge. Putting an order in now won't be action'd til the open and if there is a gap there will be slippage as you suspect.

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
