Weekly Futures Recap With Mike Seery

We've asked Michael Seery of SEERYFUTURES.COM to give our INO readers a weekly recap of the Futures market. He has been Senior Analyst for close to 15 years and has extensive knowledge of all of the commodity and option markets.

Michael frequently appears on multiple business networks including Bloomberg news, Fox Business, CNBC Worldwide, CNN Business, and Bloomberg TV. He is also a guest on First Business, which is a national and internationally syndicated business show.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average settling last Friday in New York at 1,277 while currently trading at 1,288 an ounce down about $12 this afternoon as I have been recommending a bullish position when prices cracked 1,245 and if you took that trade place your stop at the 10 day low which in Monday’s trade will be 1,217 still risking about $70 or $7,000 per contract plus slippage and commission, however the chart structure will start to improve on a daily basis starting next week. Gold prices hit a 5 month high this week and now is being considered as a currency and not a commodity as nobody wants to own any of the foreign currencies especially the Euro currency which was down another 100 points today sending the U.S dollar to an 11 year high as countries like Yemen are collapsing right in front of our eyes and many other countries are getting crushed by the low crude oil prices so investors are seeking a safe haven in gold despite today’s negative tape.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are slightly lower this Friday afternoon in New York after settling last Friday at 1,216 currently trading at 1,260 as I’m currently recommending a long futures position while placing your stop loss below the 10 day low which is around 1,209 risking around $50 or $1,650 on a mini contract plus slippage and commission. Gold futures are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average hitting a 5 month high as the chart structure will also start to improve on a daily basis starting next week as the market has caught fire recently due to worldwide problems as money is pouring back into the precious metals and out of the S&P 500 in the beginning of 2015.

Yesterday the Swiss government announced they will let the Swiss Franc float rocketing that currency up while sending shockwaves through the bond and currency markets and it certainly looks to me that problems are here to stay here for a while as Europe is a mess and this could push gold up to the next resistance level of 1,300 – 1,320 so take advantage of any price dip while maintaining the proper stop loss risking 2% of your account balance on any given trade as gold has finally turned into a short-term bull market once again.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are currently trading higher by $8 in New York this Friday afternoon trading at 1,216 an ounce after settling last Friday at 1,186 up around $30 this week hitting a 3 week high as terrorism in France has occurred with Al Qaeda now taking credit for killing 12 people and possibly more sending gold prices higher as a flight to quality.

Gold prices are trading above their 20 and right at their 100 day moving average looking to breakout however the true breakout does not occur until prices close above 1,240 on a closing basis which could possibly happen next week as gold prices have been grinding higher despite the fact that the U.S dollar hit a 9 year high which is generally very pessimistic precious metal prices but with worldwide tensions currently prices are holding their own. Gold prices have been in a steady long-term downtrend after hitting 1,900 back in 2011 as the stock market seems to be relentless to the upside, however profit taking is hitting the S&P 500 today sending money back into the precious metal but be patient on this trade and wait for the true breakout to occur which could take several weeks hoping that the chart structure will be tight allowing us to place a tight stop loss minimizing the risk to 2% of your account balance on any given trade so keep an eye on the gold market as it certainly looks like something is about to develop in my opinion.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract witnessed another extremely volatile trading session with another $20 trading range currently trading up $4 at 1,188 after trading as low as 1,167 earlier in the session as the U.S dollar hit another multiyear high pressuring many the commodity prices, however bottom feeders appeared thinking that gold was overdone to the downside. Gold futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average as I am currently sitting on the sidelines in this market waiting for better chart structure to develop as the market is just too volatile in my opinion, however if you are bearish this market I would sell at today’s price while placing my stop above the 10 day high which currently stands at 1,210 risking around $23 or $2,300 per contract plus slippage and commission as the chart structure is relatively solid at the current time. Gold futures remain in a long-term downtrend as investors are still putting money into the S&P 500 and out of the precious metals especially with a strong U.S dollar which looks to head higher in my opinion and with worldwide problems cooling down especially with Russia there’s really no reason to own gold at the current time.

Gold futures traded over the last 2 months in a price range between $1,140-$1,240 and now around mid-range so I’m waiting for a trend to develop as traders are waiting next Friday’s monthly unemployment report which should send even more volatility into this market so make sure if you are in the futures market that you use the proper amount contracts risking 2% of your account balance on any given trade as this market is high risk.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average settling last Friday in New York at 1,222 currently trading at 1,196 continuing its long-term bearish trend as I’m currently sitting on the sidelines in this market as volatility is too high and the price remains extremely choppy as we head into the new year. Gold prices rallied as high as 1,240 last week before settling back despite the fact that the stock market had a wild ride but the interest still is in the S&P 500 which looks like it’s going to close right near another record high today. The problem with the gold market is the ETF market in gold might be sold come year end for tax purposes and when that happens the ETF than has to sell the futures contract so I still think lower prices are ahead but this market is difficult to trade at the current time so move on and find a market that is trending strong in one direction. The U.S dollar hit another multiyear high which is generally pessimistic commodity prices and especially precious metals prices, however with turmoil in Russia gold prices have been extremely volatile with many $30/$40 price ranges on any given day so if you do trade this market make sure you place the proper amount contracts limiting risk to 2% of your account balance as I have to admit it’s fun to watch but I remain on the sidelines until a true breakout occurs. Rumors of Russia having to sell some of their gold reserves sent gold prices down nearly down $30 in Wednesday’s trade however that rumor has not been verified at the current time but with the problems in Russia it would not surprise me about anything.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract settled last Friday around 1,190 while currently trading at 1,223 this afternoon near a 6 week high as I’ve been recommending to sit on the sidelines in this market as volatility is way too high and the risk is also way too high in my opinion, however it does look to me like a bottom has been placed here in the short term with gold spiking from the 1,140 level last week and then rebounding around 100 dollars in the last 7 trading days which is incredibly impressive as the stock market is sharply lower this afternoon sending money back into the gold and precious metal sector. Gold futures are trading above their 20 but still below their 100 day moving average telling you that the trend is lower as I will remain neutral as the chart structure is awful at this time, however if you do think gold has bottomed my recommendation would be to buy at today’s price level while placing your stop loss below 1,186 risking around $37 or $3,700 per contract plus slippage and commission but the risk is too high & does not meet my criteria so I will wait for better chart structure to develop but I have to admit its sure fun to watch.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are down $16 this Friday afternoon in New York currently trading at 1,192 an ounce after settling last Friday at 1,175 with huge volatile this trading week with Monday’s trade going as low as 1,140 before rallying sharply hitting a 4 week high as the volatility is as high as I’ve ever seen it due to the fact that crude oil prices have plummeted coupled with a strong U.S dollar as I’m neutral this market and I’m advising traders to sit on the sidelines and look for another market with better chart structure with less risk. Gold futures are trading above their 20 but below their 100 day moving average telling you that the trend is mixed and I do believe that gold prices will continue to head lower as money flows will continue to head into the S&P 500 which is hitting another record high today but the volatility is too high and the risk/reward at the current time is not in your favor in my opinion. The month of December in recent years has been bearish as ETF selling in the gold has put pressure on prices as investors want to take a tax break on losing trades before the end of the year and I think that will continue this year as well as I still see no reason to own gold at the current time.

Gold Futures

Gold futures this Friday afternoon after the Thanksgiving holiday are sharply lower due to the fact that crude oil prices are down nearly $5 also pressuring the precious metals to the downside as gold in the February contract is currently trading down $29 at 1,167 after settling last Friday at 1,198 as I still remain neutral in this market as prices are trading above their 20 day but still below their 100 day moving average so avoid this market at the current time. In my opinion choppy markets are difficult to trade as the longer term downtrend line in gold is still intact in my opinion as a strong U.S dollar and S&P 500 continue to take money out of gold as the money flow continues to go into those 2 sectors as I still think there’s a possible retest of 1,130 in the month of December and if you remember in 2013 December was also a negative month to the downside as the stock market in my opinion will continue to climb higher throughout the rest of the year. The chart structure in gold is poor at the current time as prices have been choppy in recent weeks so look for a better market to trade and keep an eye on this and hopefully better chart structure will develop over the course of the next several weeks but I’m feeling that we will not be involved in the gold market until at least early 2015.

Gold Futures

As I talked about in yesterday’s blog I am telling investors to remain neutral as I do believe gold prices will remain choppy to lower for the rest of 2014 as prices rallied $9 to trade around $1,200 per ounce as extreme volatility has entered this market and I think today’s price action was very impressive due to the fact that the U.S dollar was up over 50 points which is generally very bearish precious metals, however China cut their interest rate pushing many commodities prices higher. Gold futures are trading above their 20 but below their 100 day moving average moving higher despite the fact that the ECB looks like they’re going to utilize more stimulus which is remarkable in my opinion as I do think if the U.S dollar continues to move higher eventually that will be very bearish gold prices so sit on the sidelines as you do not want to trade a choppy market. This market is extremely volatile with big up price swings and down swings so avoid and move on to a trendy market like the S&P 500. Volatility in gold is amazing lately with many days of a $30 – $50 trading range which is incredible going into the holiday season, however if you remember last year gold’s low was near December 31st and we opened up the next day around $20 higher and I think the same thing will happen because of the fact that stock sales which are losers are sold to offset winning trades come the month of December so I still look for another leg down but still would sit on the sidelines at the current time.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the December contract had a wild trading session this Friday afternoon in New York trading as low as 1,146 down over $20 only to explode higher finishing up $29 to close around 1,190 in one of the wildest trading days I can remember, as prices hit a 2 week high. If you are currently short this market I would exit at the 10 day high which occurred today so currently I’m neutral this market sitting on the sidelines as I still think gold prices are headed lower for the remainder of 2014 as money flows will continue into the S&P 500 in my opinion, however when prices hit a 2 week high it’s time to move on and sit on the sidelines and wait for another trend to develop. The U.S dollar was sharply higher this morning which caused precious metal prices to be sharply lower in early trade, however the U.S dollar sold off somewhat closing up around 20 points as massive short covering in my opinion is what’s to blame for today’s price action. The trend now in gold is choppy to neutral as volatility is extremely high at the current time so make sure you use the proper amount of contracts making sure that you risk 2% of your account balance on any given trade as 1,200 is the next resistance level in the December contract.
TREND: NEUTRAL
