I’ll let you in on a little secret.
One of my favorite sites to have up while I’m trading is “Financial Juice.”
It’s a news feed that alerts me to any important financial news coming in that could inject volatility into the market.
The main things to look out for when trading the S&P 500 are the usual US economic numbers (see left).
But… there are also news bulletins coming in unannounced – and they make me happy I’m trading US Index Futures.
See that bottom news event about Russia being ready to blast ships going into Odesa, Ukraine?
Fear of war escalation in Europe leads to the Euro acting crazy, sorry Forex bros.
Oh you were short AAPL when they announced they were now competing with OpenAI? Get wrecked…
Since most of this turbulence is coming from Europe, at Tradacc we’re sitting comfy in our lane just trading the ES day in and day out.
It takes a lot of buying power to move the S&P…
So we’re taking high-quality setups and seeing if we are right based on our technical expertise – without worrying about price manipulation from erratic news events.
