How She Plans:
As a futures and forex trader, she keeps an eye on the economic calendar for volatility events, and overnight ranges. She stays on top of the global Macro narrative, central banks, then the market trends. It’s pretty basic and simple. Not too time consuming as long as you keep up with it!
TradeStation Daily Chart
This TradeStation grid allows Raghee to look at one security in detail. A daily chart is a great reference for her swing based plays.
TradeStation Correlations Comparison Grid
Raghee keeps her important pairs from her watch list in her TradeStation grid, on multiple time frame charts to watch correlations play out.
Price Movement Ranges
Raghee’s Price Movement Ranges are very important in determining risk in her work. She defines her risk based on volatility, number of contracts and the time frame. The risk per time frame varies per price movement range. She always uses this chart to quantify and limit the risk she has on hand.
EURUSD Price Movement Range
Here is an example of a EURUSD Price Movement Range on a daily time frame. This tells Raghee how much this pair is capable of moving each day.
E-mini Price Movement Range per Hour
This PMR tells Raghee how much the ES is capable of moving each hour of the day in points.
