Strategy Video: Identifying Range Trades in Range Conditions

Strategy Video: Identifying Range Trades in Range Conditions

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Low volatility and well-establish technical boundaries sets the stage for a market predisposed to range

• Looking for individual opportunities in a range market involves technicals, themes and event risk

• Where EURUSD, AUDUSD and USDJPY have caveats to their ranges; GBPUSD, NZDUSD and the S&P 500 better fit

Patience is a virtue most traders struggle with. They want trades. Fitting your analysis and seeking setups that fit broader conditions is your best bet for finding active positions rather than optimal scenarios for weeks and months into the future. With a backdrop of persistently low volatility, well establish trends and themes that are currently balanced; we are looking at a bigger picture more conducive to range and congestion positions. In today's Strategy Video, we look at how to establish our market type, filtering individual opportunities and assess some of the majors.
