Learning the S&P 500 Squawk Speak

Recommended Posts

Learning the S&P 500 Squawk Speak service from TradersAudio for trading the emini futures



In the past I was not able to put much effort to learn Squawk. My initial attempt into this got overcome by spectical opinions & I also was not able to find enough material to learn than.

Now that I have a home-office and trading almost full time I think I have the environment to give it a sincere go. I also am more savvy to the market terms & use market internals data everyday in my trading.


My first task is to just learn to decipher the important quotes from the continuous price auction commentary and also when the auction prices itself matters with the noise. And than some hands on experience and investigae if it provides any edge to my intraday trading.



My Starting Point

I have sincerely been adviced to start at the FAQ section of TradersAudio website http://www.tradersaudio.com/faq.html


I am going through them now. If you have any more links, seminars or recorded videos please do post here.


I hope others would join in & help. And those who are making successful use of this service would contribute towards our learning experience


Many Thanks

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th August 2018.

      FX News Today

      Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.8 bp at 2.880%, 10-year JGBs up 0.7 bp at 0.094% as of 05:35GMT, as stocks move up from early lows on trade talk hopes. Asian sold off early in the session amid concerns over global growth and particularly China, after a Sino-related tech slump saw Wall Street heading south yesterday. Reports that China and the US are preparing a low level round helped to put a floor under markets, however, and mainland China bourses managed to move higher, while other indices are up from early lows. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.78% and -0.21% respectively. The Hang Seng is still down -0.395, but CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are now up 0.61% and -0.20% respectively. The Kospi slumped -0.87% after returning from holiday and the ASX 200 is down -0.035. Meanwhile, US futures are moving higher with Chinese markets. Oil prices are slightly up from lows and the September US oil future is trading at USD 65.10 per barrel.

      FX Update: The Dollar and the Yen have both weakened, giving back recent gains amid an improvement in risk appetite. The US and China have agreed on a new round of trade talks, while Turkey has managed to halt the rout of the Lira and secure major investments from Qatar and China’s Alibaba. The USDIndex (DXY) is showing a 0.3% decline, at 96.44, heading into the London interbank open, while EURUSD is concurrently showing a 0.3% gain, earlier printing a two-session high of 1.1397, putting in some space from yesterday’s 13-month low at 1.1316. USDJPY has settled in the upper 110.00s after printing a low in Tokyo at 110.46. AUDJPY, viewed as a forex market proxy on risk appetite in global markets, is showing the biggest move with just over a 0.5% gain. Over the near-term, the Dollar and the Yen will likely remain apt to weaken before settling as developments on the latest phase of Sino-US negotiations are awaited.
