Swing Trading the Stock Market After Interest Rate Changes
The stock market hates indecision, we see "melted candlesticks" (small body) on the daily and weekly charts with little hope of easy trades.
Yesterday the FOMC cut interest rates and day traders saw violent moves in both directions. Today I'm looking for a trend day. Actually 2 trend days.
Now that the decision is past us, it's time for the big money to start positioning for the end of 2019. So I'm game planning for consistency to the day and weekly order flow.
For day traders that means holding to the close and avoiding the wiggles and jiggles, and trying to perfectly time entries and exits.
For swing traders it means picking a side and being patient. Let the market make you money.
Stock futures are trading lower, here is a scan of a few stocks with bearish order flow. Note the scan includes a "relative volume of 1," this means it traded at or near it's average volume yesterday.
