This is a sample entry from Don DeBartolo’s email newsletter, Trade Spotlight: Futures, published on Wednesday, November 8, 2017.


There is a trade opportunity based on a breakout in the Live Cattle futures market. The Stochastic indicator is showing a strong change in Momentum to the downside. The Trend Seeker is up, albeit with a weak ranking. The MACD indicator, a trend indicator, appears to be turning bearish already. Ideally there is an up session followed immediately with an M.E.T. breakout. Let’s have our order working in anticipation.

Sell the February 2018 Live Cattle futures contract at 127.950 using a stop order, GTC.

Entry is a break of today’s low. Initial Margin = $1,650 Maintenance Margin = $1,500

If filled:

Stop loss: Place buy stop on 130.050, above the 130 price level, GTC ($1,020)

Target: Place buy limit on 122.750, a potential support level, GTC. ($2,080)
