Intro To Day Trading

  • What is Day trading?
    Day trading is when a trader takes numerous trades each day that last anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours. This kind of trading is very appealing to new traders due to the huge amount of money that can be made in a short period of time. The advantage of day trading is that you profit from extremely small price movements, which means traders can take big profits from each trading session.
  • What is Swing Trading?
    Swing trading is when a trader stays in a trade over a number of days and weeks.
  • What is regular margin?
    Brokers can add on additional leverage called “regular margin” as they see fit.  it is up to the broker to manage his own risk; as any additional margin it affords traders is the brokers responsibility.  Once the trader settles the futures contract he is returned the initial or regular margin and any gains or losses are added or deducted based on the trade that was executed.
  • What is maintenance margin?
    A trader must also establish “maintenance margin”, which is the absolute lowest account balance which the trader must maintain when trading futures before a margin call is made, and the trader must deposit more money into the account. (this number differs by broker. Some have a margin of $500 and some $2500, you will need to do you research)
  • Long Positions
    When a futures trader believes that the price of an asset is likely to rise, it makes sense to consider entering into a long position. This approach is similar to the traditional ‘buy and hold’ strategies that are commonly seen in stock markets. Here, a futures trader buys an asset at one price and looks to sell it back to the broker at a higher price some time later. The difference between this purchase and sale price marks the total profit or loss in the position.In terms of strategy, long positions are generally based on a bullish outlook that supports an argument for higher prices at a later date.
  • Short Positions
    When a futures trader believes that the price of an asset is likely to fall, it makes sense to consider entering into a short position. With this approach, a futures trader will effectively ‘sell’ an asset at one price and then buy it back from the broker at a later date. If the asset price falls during the time the position is held, the trader profits. The difference between the initial sale price and the later purchase price marks the total profit or loss in the position. Short positions are generally based on a bearish outlook that supports an argument for lower prices at a later date.
  • What Is Price Action?
    The study of price movement as it plots on day trading charts in the form of bars, candles, etc. When used correctly, price action can be a reliable trading method for predicting future movement. All of our day trading methods at Ace Trades are based on price action, as it is objective and the only truly accurate indicator of market activity.
  • What are news releases and how do they effect the market?
    Scheduled economic reports, prominent political figures, and big-headline world events can cause massive price fluctuations in the markets. The best resource for staying on top of scheduled events is the Bloomberg economic calendar. Watch for the events marked with a red star, these events cause volatile market activity. Watch the Ace Methodology call huge opportunities during large news releases such as fed day and non-farm pay rolls.

Futures Trading Basics

  • What is a Futures contract?
    A futures contract is an agreement by two parties for the delivery of an underlying commodity, index or currency at some future date for a pre-agreed arranged price. Futures are derivative products that can speculate on forex, commodities (ex Gold, Oil, Pork) or indices unlike equity (which has a limited number of shares), an unlimited amount of futures contracts can be created. Simplified Futures Contract: When you buy 1 futures contract on the Emini Sp for example at 2100. And sell it at 2105 you just made 5 points. Now if you were only trading 1 contract that would be worth $250 ($50 per point, per contract * 5 points). Now if you were to trade 5 contracts and make 5 points that would be $1250. ($250 for 5 points * 5 contracts = $1250)
  • How does futures trading work?
    Futures trading is a zero sum game. When you are buying 2 contracts someone else is on the opposite side selling those contracts.
  • What Is the Difference Between Trading stocks and futures?
    As a trader, both stocks and futures can be traded electronically through platforms. In both stocks and futures, the trader is speculating on a price. The main difference is that when trading stock, a trader is actually buying shares, or equity in a company or they are selling shares of a company by borrowing the shares first from someone else. There are only a certain number of outstanding shares of that company. In futures, the trader is either buying or selling a derivative product ex. (Gold, Oil, Pork) The trader does not actually own any shares of the underlying asset. The trader owns a contract which can be converted into physical delivery of a product at expiry t. In the case of oil, barrels of oil. In most cases traders are day trading and simply trying to make profits on fluctuations in the price of the futures contracts and no delivery is ever taken. Stocks have no expiry, while futures contracts have expiry dates. As a trader this simply means you are usually trading the futures contracts with the closest expiry to the current date.
  • What is the E-mini S&P Futures Market?
    An electronically traded futures contract on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange that represents a portion of the normal futures contracts. E-mini contracts are available on a wide range of indexes such as the Nasdaq 100, S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and Russell 2000.
  • What is an E-mini S&P Point worth?
    An emini SP point is worth $50.00 on one contract
  • What is a Gold Point worth?
    A gold point is worth $100.00 on one contract
  • What is a crude (oil) point worth?
    A Crude point is worth $100.00 on one contract
  • Where Do I trade futures?
    In order to trade futures, you must have an existing futures account or you must create an account with a broker. If you have a stock broker, then you can probably open a futures account with them as well. If you are outside of the United States, you can also gain access to trading US futures as long as you have a valid passport and utility bill to prove your address. Futures are traded on exchanges, but you’ll actual execute your trades on your broker platform who will clear your order.
