Trading Homework for Trade-date Thursday August 29th 2019

As a hurricane bears down on Florida, large moves in lumber and orange juice were made on Tuesday.

Most other markets were mostly tame. Except Platinum – wow, what a move there.


  • GC: Keep buying pullbacks.
  • SI: Keep buying pullbacks – this is now a momentum market it seems.
  • HG: 5SMA Sale
  • ZB: Upper end of range or start of new breakout leg? If I squint I can say its the start of a new breakout leg, meaning even lower long term rates.
  • LC: Short rallies
  • LH: Likely forming a sideways line
  • CL: At resistance – short with stop at Tuesday’s high?
  • EMD: Boucing from lows. 3 day triangle
  • Equities (ES, NQ, FDAX, NK, FESX): Also 3 day triangle.
  • BP: Short bias.
  • MP: Lower end of range. Feels weak. If it breaks, watch out below.
  • PL: Wow, what a move. z-day, buy pullbacks, scalp only (since it ran all the way up to a prior consolidation area/resistance).
  • LB: Break-a-way gap on hurricane news.
  • OJ: Break-a-way gap on hurricane news.
  • FGBL: Tight consolidation – seems like it wants higher.
  • BR: Hammer at lower end of range on really high volume. Feels like a sell climax for now. Tentative long bias (catching a falling knife ..)
