Strong start early Monday with a follow through in Crude Oil and the E-mini S&P after a down week last week. Friday's e-mini S&P range was only 6.0 points and as a percentage of closing price was the 5th lowest in the nearly 20 year history of the E-mini S&P.
See how to manage automation in Crude Oil by exiting on Friday and re-entering on Monday. Crude Oil after hours holds trades overnight and over the weekend but with a 3 day weekend, we recommended exiting Friday's close and re-entering at Monday's 5pm CST open. The price action gave us this opportunity as well as the opportunity to get in at prices better than the entry price up until almost 9 am EST Tuesday morning.
