    How to Trade the S&P 500 Index

    What is the S&P 500 Index?

    The S&P 500 Index is an index consisting of the five hundred largest publicly traded companies on U.S. stock exchanges.

    Why Should I Be Interested in the S&P 500 Index?

    As a very broad index representing the leading lights of the world’s largest and most successful economy, the S&P 500 Index is extremely interesting to investors and traders worldwide, and more so than any other stock market index except perhaps the NASDAQ 100, the major American technology index.

    How Can I Invest in the S&P 500 Index?

    As investment typically means buying and holding an asset for a period of months or years, it is important to invest through a vehicle which does not impose periodic holding costs, while spread and commission is not so important. That means that if you are investing in the S&P 500, you will be wise to not use brokerage CFDs, as these will almost always generate an overnight swap fee daily which will hugely eat away at long-term profits.

    How Can I Trade the S&P 500 Index?

    As traders are looking to profit from taking several short-term positions either long or short in the S&P 500 Index, they are much more interested in accessing an instrument which is liquid and usually has competitive spread and commission. Additional longer-term costs of holding positions, such as overnight financing fees which are often known as “swaps”, become less important.

    How to Day Trade the S&P 500 Index

    The S&P 500 Index can be a great asset to day trade, although when traded as a CFD it can have a comparatively higher spread than Forex currency pairs. This means that you are probably better off as a day trader to adopt a relatively conservative trading style which enters few trades, perhaps a maximum of only one per day when conditions seem right.

    Seasonality of the S&P 500 Index

    Many analysts have noted that stock markets seem to tend to perform differently over different months of the year. This tendency is known as “seasonality”. One well-known expression about stock markets is “sell in May then go away”, meaning that markets often do well during the first four or five months in the year before declining over the summer.

    Ethereum Price Prediction

    A look at Ethereum in the short-term and long-term charts shows strong bullish sentiment. From a look at the daily chart, which is an indicator of short-term momentum, the moving averages point to bulls in charge of the market. The 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day moving averages are all trending upwards. The shorter-term (50 and 10-day) moving averages are also firmly trending above the 200-day moving average.

    Forex Trading Hours in South Africa

    The Forex market has a unique structure which sets it apart from other assets.

    For example, equity markets have precise open and closing times. The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), for example, is active Mondays to Fridays from 9 AM to 5 PM South African Standard Time (GMT +02:00). So, while there is a clear answer to the question “what time does the JSE open?”, the answer isn’t so clear when it comes to Forex. The Forex market is open 24/5, which is great for traders who want to place trades before work or at the end of their day.

    Overview of Forex Trading Times


    The fact that the Forex market trades around the clock from Monday to Friday means there isn’t an “official” open and close of business in every country.
    A good way to think about the Forex market is to divide the trading day into 3 sessions which represent the main money "centers": Asia, Europe, North America.

    Impact of Daylight Savings Time (DST)


    While it’s true that Forex trading can be done 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, there is a detail that cannot be overlooked. Every day at rollover time (5 pm New York time), you will be unable to place trades for a short amount of time (this will depend on your broker).

    Therefore, in South Africa, the Forex market opens and closes at either 23:00 (between March and November) or 00:00 (between October and March). Generally speaking, you shouldn’t be trading during those times (due to lower volatility and higher spreads). But if you are trading Forex during those times, just keep these adjustments in mind.

    Best Time for Day Trading in South Africa


    Knowing how the 24-hour cycle works, you can now understand what the best time to trade Forex in South Africa is: the slot between 10:00 and 17:00 SAST (South Africa Standard Time).
    10:00 SAST is when the London session opens and 17:00 is 2 hours into the U.S. session. This is the main window where economic news is released (always influential for intraday and day traders) and deep liquidity, allowing for optimal trading conditions.

    43% of Forex transactions are traded during the European session, which makes it the most important Forex trading session of the day.

    South Africa is actually a decent place to trade Forex because the best trading conditions coincide with the 10:00-19:00 SAST window. As such, it’s actually easier to trade Forex from South Africa than the United States! Some traders in the US have to get up at 3AM in order to trade Forex during the European session – not a comfortable time by any means.

    Sell Short Marathon Petroleum

    Stock Market-marathonpetroleum-h4-acy-securities-pty.png


    The Marathon Petroleum weekly cycle tops on September 19th and can be sold short on Friday. All three short and all three long signals have been profitable in the last year. The daily and the monthly cycles also are in decline. September has been a weak month for this stock. It has closed on the downside in nine of the last eleven years. The period from the 17th through the 23rd has been the weakest interval in the month. The 22nd has been the most bearish day of the month. The share price is due to fall closer to $50 by the end of this month.
