February the 3rd Overnight Trade Overview

3-2-2020

Greetings traders,

Yesterday’s long trade – the entry was on February the 3rd of 2020 – is described below:

Trade entry  – Emini future price = 3243,75

Trade exit – Emini future price = 3284,25

Stop loss triggered – none

Take profit triggered – 40,5 Emini points

Trade gain = 40,5 Emini points

Trade gain in $ per contract = $ 2025

The entry was on the blue circle on the left and the exit was on the first blue circle on the right (take profit hit). Today’s stock market open is on the second blue circle on the right.

This is one of my best trades ever.

January the 30th of 2020 Overnight Trade Overview

30-1-2020

Greetings traders,

Last Thursday’s trade – the entry was on January the 30th of 2020 – is described below:

Trade entry  – Emini future price = 3289,5

Trade exit – Emini future price = 3275

Stop loss triggered – none

Take profit triggered – none

Trade loss = 14,5 Emini points

Trade loss in $ per contract = $ 725

The entry was on the blue circle on the left and the exit was on the blue circle on the right.

Anyway, the first blue bubble on the left highlights the 4.00 PM EST (stocks close) potential entry. Normally, we enter at 4.13 PM EST (futures close). If we had entered the trade 13 minutes earlier, the take profit order would have been hit.

Sometimes it’s better, sometimes not. It’s vital to choose always the same time, if you trade at 4.00 you trade always at 4.00, if you trade at 4.13 you always trade at 4.13.

That’s it.

Regards,

Marco Simioni

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.

The equity curve below shows a mixed edge. There are steady up rushes and sharp down crashes. Well, stock markets regimes change over time. They can last for many years, forever, or change quickly to the opposite direction. The change is not easy to detect. This is a very wild quarter of an hour.
