Welcome to Nightly Patterns! – Overnight Trading

This futures trading room focusses on high leverage Overnight Trading with futures:

“Just open the trade at the close and, if not stopped, close it at the open.”

One of the main advantages of the Nightly Patterns trading style is that it gives traders the opportunity to trade at a specific time, avoiding constant market screening. Furthermore, it allows traders to keep their money in cash during the day, making it possible to add Overnight Trading to other Intraday Trading strategies. Its unique time horizon makes this trading style completely uncorrelated to most other strategies, leading to superior portfolio diversification.

Overnight price action analysis with a rare bearish bar pattern

4 trades

It has been a boring December concerning overnight trading. I’ve been monitoring my patterns finder algo every night like always, but  there weren’t any patterns triggering or they were only mixed.

It doesn’t mean the algos aren’t working anymore, some sideline periods do exist.

Do you remember last lazy summer? It was just before a good profitable autumn.

Anyway, I want to discuss briefly why last night I didn’t send any alert:

  • I had mixed seasonality.
  • I had 9 bullish patterns triggering

Where’s the problem? I could have jumped in. But wait a minute, I looked carefully at the chart and look for a rare bar pattern in order to find one to confirm the action.

My backtesting work resulted in a very strong bearish pattern: very few rules, 4 instances, all of them bearish.

I discovered yesterday’s morning this rare bearish pattern:

O0<L1 – O1<L2 – O2>H3 – O3<C4 – L2>H3 (equity curve’s above)

Sometimes rare patterns win the battle between bulls and bears.

The excellent trade requires seasonality on the right side of the patterns triggering. Yesterday it wasn’t. And if I can find rare pattern triggering, I want it on the right side too. Otherwise, waiting on the sidelines is the rule.

This prudent behaviour prevent us from a little loss this morning.

Hope to see better price action later,

Intraday seasonality – 15 minutes anatomy of a day in the stock market (11:00 – 11:15)

Where are the intraday stock market edges? When should a trader be long or short?

Well, those aren’t easy questions. Intraday seasonality does exist. You can have a look at the previous quarter of an hour here.

Now, I’m writing down a simpler approach: I’m splitting the the stock market session in 15 minutes different periods and see what’s happening with them. I have data back to 28 September 2009: last 10 years of data exactly. Intraday data are very difficult to handle, that’s why I’m focusing only on the last 10 years.

I’m backtesting the ES future market.

Let’s have a look at this quarter: 11:00 – 11:15 AM EST.

The equity curve below shows a slightly bullish edge. Equity rises steadily at the beginning and then it goes down and up, up and down. This isn’t the idea setup for me.

If you had traded all those quarters of an hour at 11:00 AM EST blindly, going through wild moves, you would have earned about 6% going long on ES futures contract, during the last 10 years.

I’ll be back soon with another intraday seasonality study,

The equity curve below shows a slightly bullish edge. Equity falls steadily at the early beginning, there is a serious counter trend up then though. This isn’t the idea setup for me.

If you had traded all those quarters of an hour at 10:45 AM EST blindly, you would have earned about 2% going long on ES futures contract, during the last 10 years.
