Futures Update – Exiting Long Pound

AlphaCapture

We had a rough session today with losses across the board in equities, bonds, currencies and commodities. One day’s numbers in isolation can be made to look big, but with some calm perspective, the reality is we’re still ahead on our equity longs, and our gains on bonds and currencies have turned to modest losses. …

Review Of Open Positions – Futures

AlphaCapture

Last week’s review indicated the S&P would likely trigger a long signal on a new high, and after marginally failing to trigger Monday, the necessary criteria¬†were met the following night. The S&P continued higher for the remainder of the week along with the NASDAQ, albeit with some increased volatility, and there were also gains on …

Review Of Open Positions – Futures

AlphaCapture

No changes to our futures portfolio this week, and little change in our p&l either with the 10yr unchanged, and modest gains in our 30yr and NASDAQ positions not enough to overcome the weakness in the Pound. Elsewhere, the S&P would likely trigger a long signal on a new high, as would the Euro. Oil …

Tonight’s signals appear to suggest the latter, with both the NASDAQ and the Pound returning to multi-year highs. …

Futures Update – Exiting Long Pound ($6B_F)

AlphaCapture

All of a sudden those exits in our S&P and NASDAQ longs over a week ago are looking very good. These markets continue to remind us just how fast they can move and why you have to obey stops and take your exits without hesitation. It’s the same for entries too. Look how quickly our …

Review Of Open Positions – Futures

AlphaCapture

Despite the volatility across many markets this week, this was setting up to be one of the most threadbare weekly reviews ever with only the one open position, but lo and behold, Friday’s close gave us three new entry signals to talk about:- long 30yr, long 10yr, and long Dollar, which we’ll detail shortly. Earlier …

Futures Update – Exiting Long NASDAQ ($NQ_F)

AlphaCapture

Another volatile session for most markets and another signal generated, this time a trailing stop in our NASDAQ long which we’ve exited at tonight’s open. We had been long since July for a profit of $8,120.00 per contract. Having seen six futures positions trigger exits in the last three days, all trailing stops except oil, …
