Best trade – week ending Feb. 15, 2019

The trade Oil: $1010 Monday Feb. 11 Oil continues to offer a majority of the best trades so far in 2019. The reason is not difficult to understand; the intraday volatility of oil futures has increased sharply in the past couple of months, and greater intraday price swings mean more trading opportunities and larger moves. This trade is fairly typical of what has been happening in the oil markets. The price dropped in overnight trading, reached an extreme shortly after the open — which is … Continue reading

Best trade – week ending Feb. 8, 2019

The trade Gold: $590 Feb. 4 The best trading opportunities so far in 2019 have been in oil futures. Last week was no exception, and Nat’s oil trades returned a potential profit of $560 for the week, despite being stopped out (by five cents) on Thursday.

To make it even sweeter, Nat’s first sell level caught the last dime before the reversal … Continue reading

The trade Oil: $600 Jan. 22 This was a difficult week for traders using Nat’s daily inflection points (but not for her full access members). There were three or four excellent entries that missed her inflection levels by a few dollars, but then went on to be very profitable, leaving traders watching from the sidelines in frustration Full access members had the benefit of calls made before and during the trading session that made it easier to capture some of these trades. But for traders … Continue reading

Best trade – week ending Jan. 18, 2019

The trade S&P500 e-mini (ES): $600 Jan. 16 This is our favorite trade this week not because it made so much potential profit, but because it was so easy to execute. Nat’s first selling level for the ES on Jan. 16 was 2625.75. The market moved up from the overnight lows during the day but stayed below the entry until midway through the afternoon session. Then the market broke above the entry level several times in the space of five minutes, and almost immediately fell … Continue reading
