Regarding risk management, it is always best to define your strategy according to your own risk profile. For some guidance on trade management, read one of my articles on that topic.
Given the choppy fundamentals of these energy markets, today’s trade projection is based on a purely volume profile analysis, thus getting ready to get long (as usual in a bullish market).
In the current market conditions, the trade could be initiated around both the previous and current months’ Volume Point of Control (VPoC), that is to say, around 4.490-4.550 (yellow band), with a stop loss to be located just below the previous swing low (4.340) and targets at 4.745 and 4.860. Given the international tensions, lifting European gas (TTF benchmark) prices back up to October ’21 levels, the participants may try to auction with higher bids on the US benchmark.
In addition to the previously mentioned targets, a third one could be located between 5.9000 and the psychological $5.000 mark.
That’s all folks for today – happy trading!
