Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the June contract settled last Friday in New York at 41.71 a barrel while currently trading at 43.77 up about $2 for the trading week. I’ve been sitting on the sidelines in this market as the chart structure does not my criteria to enter into a bullish position at this time. Crude oil prices are trading far above their 20 and 100-day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is higher as the bullish momentum continues despite the fact that last Sunday OPEC decided not to cut production sending prices sharply lower only to rally significantly over the last several days. That tells me that the short-term bottom is in place. At the current time the 10 day low stands at 39.00 which is too far away. However, we could be entering into a bullish position over the next couple of days once the chart structure tightens, therefore, allowing a tight stop loss lowering monetary risk as that’s what trading is all about.

Cotton Futures

Cotton futures in the July contract dropped 250 points over the last 2 trading sessions currently at 59.35. I’ve been recommending a bullish futures position from around the 59.00 level and if you took that trade continue to place your stop loss below the 10 day low which currently stands at 58.23 as volatility certainly has picked up in this commodity. Prices settled last Friday at 59.56 while trading slightly lower week now just barely trading above its 20-day but still below its 100-day moving average as the recent plunge in prices was blamed on very weak export sales data coupled with the fact of profit-taking. Earlier in the week, the USDA lowered U.S ending stocks and world stocks sending cotton prices to an 8 week high so continue to place the proper stop loss and if we are stopped out I will move on and look at other markets that are beginning to trend.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the May contract settled last Friday in New York at 36.79 a barrel while currently trading at $39.31 this Friday afternoon on bullish comments about production slowing down dramatically towards the end of year propping up prices this afternoon. Oil prices are trading above their 20-day and 100-day moving average telling you that the short-term trend is higher. However, this market remains extremely choppy and had bearish momentum before today’s action so avoid this market at present and wait for better chart structure to develop which could take several more weeks in my opinion. Oil prices are trading between $35/$42 a barrel as there is very little fresh fundamental news to push prices sharply higher or lower in my opinion. I am waiting for volatility to slow down, therefore, then I can place my stop loss relatively close, therefore, lowering monetary risk, but at this time, I don’t see any trend in crude oil so look at other markets that are beginning to trend with better risk/reward potential at the current time. Rumors are circulating [Read more...]

10-Year Note Futures

The 10 year note in the June contract settled last Thursday in Chicago at 129 7/32 while currently trading at 130 12/32 trading higher 4 out of the last 5 trading sessions as I’ve been recommending a bullish position from around 129/25 as I think interest rates in the United States are going lower which is an amazing thing to state. Worldwide interest rates in many different countries have gone negative which is the first time in history that has happened as I think the world is chasing interest rates and at 1.77% the U.S still looks expensive in my opinion so play this to the upside as I’m looking to add more contracts once the chart structure improves, therefore, lowering monetary risk. If you took the original recommendation place your stop loss below the 10 day low which currently stands 128/20/30 as the chart structure will not improve for another 4 days as you will have to be patient with the monetary risk as I think prices will retest last month’s high around 132/16 as the bullish trend remains intact in my opinion.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the April contract settled last Friday in New York at 38.50 a barrel while currently trading 40.65 up over $2 for the trading week now trading above its 20 and 100-day moving average for the first time in 6 months. The selloff in the U.S dollar has pushed up oil prices tremendously over the last several weeks. Oil prices are trading higher for the 3rd consecutive day; however this rally has been based on very low volume which is a little concerning as I'm sitting on the sidelines in this market as I have missed the rally to the upside. The U.S dollar has hit a 6 month low and that has propped up many commodity prices and especially crude oil as gasoline and heating oil also have rallied substantially. You will notice this at your local gas station as you are paying much more than you were just three or four weeks ago as the tide has turned in the commodity markets. Rumors are circulating that Saudi Arabia is going to urge OPEC to start cutting production, therefore, pushing up prices even higher as their economy is struggling due to low prices. [Read more...]
