Futures Update – Thursday, 06/10

We had a positive day today as most of our positions traded in our favor. Just like we pointed out in last night's update, today's session saw wider trading ranges on the back of the monthly CPI report. The big difference this month is the markets were much more resilient in the face of higher inflation numbers. I, like most, expect to see high inflation numbers over the next [...]

Futures Update – Wednesday, 06/09

Today's performance was largely mixed with most markets trading sideways/choppy - really not much to highlight. It was good to see more upside in Orange Juice (OJ) and 10Y Notes (ZN) but nothing really to write home about. I think tomorrow will be very different with the monthly CPI report due out in the morning. As a reminder, the CPI report last month caused a fairly large selloff in [...]

Futures Update – Tuesday, 06/08

Overall, our portfolio was mixed on the day but we had some really nice movement in select positions. It was great to see Heating Oil (HO) hit a new 52-week high today - that's a trend I expect to see continue over the following days/weeks. Also, Orange Juice had another nice move higher, so we'll be moving our trailing stop higher to lock in more profits. Our Cocoa (CC) [...]

Futures Update – Monday, 06/07

We had an excellent day today thanks to Cocoa (CC) trading lower by 2% and our Orange Juice (OJ) moving higher by 2.7%. These are the kind of days that show how important it is to trade commodity markets, as they provide great long/short setups. Please note, our OJ position hit our upside profit target today. As such, we'll be moving our trailing stop order up as the market [...]

Yesterday's close on the 20MA brought a decent bounce today as $SPX closed up +0.71%. This is always a good test of our patience as most will panic after watching yesterday's tickers drop. Sometimes its better to just sit on your hands and not do anything at all during times like those. There may be more like those ahead but we stay the course and continue to stick to the [...]

Happy New Year!! Markets took us for a wild ride today as $SPX dropped -1.48% to start off the new year. Things steadied themselves by close ending right above the 20MA around 3700. News of the UK closing through mid-February sent most panic sellers out trying to catch the top of the market. A new variant of the virus is said to be spreading and traces of it have [...]

Markets ripped higher today with ES closing up 3.56%.
