Trading rules – Daily trades

  • Enter a buy and a sell order overnight for each of the three contracts covered in the Naturus daily worksheet: oil and gold futures and the e-minis (i.e. a total of six orders each trading day). Trade the front month: e.g. CL1!
  • All orders are good “day-only” — automatically cancelled at the close of the day session.
  • Place a hard stop on every order: $300 for all contracts.
  • If an order is filled, cancel the opposite order, i.e. order-cancels-order.
  • If an order is filled and not stopped out, cover it market-on-close.
