Glossary

*  MINI S&P FUTURES: Are agreements to buy or sell the cash value of the S&P Index at a future date. e-mini S&P futures are 1/5 the size of a full S&P futures contract and are valued at $50 X the future price. That means by buying or selling one future contract at a price of 950  you are leveraging $ 47,500  worth of stock. 

S&P futures are based on the S&P 500 Stock Index of 500 large-capitalization companies. The market value of the 500 firms is equal to about 80 percent of the value of all stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange. 

    *  FOREX OR FX:  Stands for Foreign Exchange. This is the market in which currencies are traded. The forex market is the largest, most liquid market in the world with an average traded value that exceeds several trillion dollars per day and includes all of the currencies in the world. 

        * RUNNER:  Is a trailing position.  Example:  You enter an order to buy 2 (two) futures contracts.  You exit one contract and you hold onto the other contract hoping to exit at the better price.  This latter contract is a "Runner".  The same term applies when trading stocks.

    * CANDLESTICK CHART:  A price chart that displays the high, low, open,  and close for a security / future.  Candlesticks can be used for any timeframe or tick chart. 

    * SET-UP:  "Time to react to what the indicators are saying with a trade." 

    * LONG:  The buying of a security such as a stock, commodity future or currency, with the expectation that the asset will rise in value. 

    * SHORT:  Short sellers assume that they will be able to buy the stock, commodity or future at a lower amount than the price at which they sold short. 

    * CHOPPY:  A situation in which stock / future price changes little over a period of  time. 

    * MARKET BREADTH:  A technical analysis theory that predicts the strength of the market according to the number of stocks that advance or decline in a particular trading day. 

    * STOP LOSS ORDER:  An order placed with a broker to sell a security future or commodity when it reaches a certain price.  It is designed to limit an investor's loss on a security position.  This is sometimes called a "stop market order".
