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.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures hit a 2 week high today trading up $1.30 a barrel at 95.85 as tensions with Russia continue to prop up prices as I have been recommending a short position but it’s time to move on and look for another market as this trade hit a 10 day high today so if you took my short recommendation it’s time to exit and move on in my opinion. As a trader you must have an exit strategy and my exit strategy is if I’m short I place my stop at the 2 week high so currently sit on the sidelines and wait for a better trend to develop as this trade was disappointing but was pretty neutral but I do believe that over supplies eventually will continue to push prices lower but there is so much chaos going on in the Middle East at this point pushing prices higher so let’s wait for some better chart structure to develop as we might consolidate in the next several weeks so wait for another trend to develop as I like trading the crude oil market because sometimes the risk reward situation is highly in your favor since crude oil is a highly volatile commodity.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the October contract down are $.30 this Friday afternoon currently trading at $93.60 a barrel finishing down about $1.50 for the trading week and I’m still recommending a short position in crude oil placing your stop above the 10 day high which on Monday’s trade will be at 97.10 risking around $4 or $4,000 per contract as the trend seems to be getting stronger to the downside as the U.S dollar is pressuring commodity prices hitting an 11 month high against the Euro currency this afternoon. The chart structure in crude oil will improve dramatically in the next several days so be patient as prices are still trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average dropping around $12 in the last 3 months as world supplies are extremely large at the current time and my theory states that the United States government wants to hurt Russia and the one way to hurt Russia’s economy is by pressuring oil prices as Russia’s economy is basically based on high energy prices so continue to play this to the downside as I think we will crack $90 a barrel in the next couple of weeks.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures hit a 5 month low this week in New York finishing higher this Friday afternoon at 96.95 up around $.1.40 as I have been recommending a short position in crude oil for quite some time and if you took that recommendation when the breakout occurred around 98.70 make sure you place your stop at the 10 day low which also stands at 98.70 as prices have been pretty nonvolatile in the last week or so except for Thursday’s trade when oil finished down over $2 as the U.S dollar is pressuring crude oil and many other commodity prices to the downside. The next major level of support is around 94.50 a barrel and if that level is broken I think there’s a possibility prices trade as low as $90 as the U.S government wants oil prices to go lower due to the fact that Russia’s economy relies on high oil prices so if prices drop dramatically Russia’s economy goes in the tank and with all the sanctions against them that could change the current situation with Putin. Crude oil futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average so continue to play this to the downside as the chart structure is outstanding and take advantage of any rally making sure that you use a proper stop loss and proper money management techniques to limit your loss to 2% of your account balance on any given trade.

Crude Oil Futures

Crude oil futures in the September contract finished basically unchanged for the trading week to close around 97.60 and I have been recommending a short position when prices broke 98.70 last week while placing your stop loss now above the 10 day high which is 102.10 risking around $4.00 or $2,000 per contract as the chart structure will improve dramatically in the next 2 days so if you’re lucky enough to get a rally in tomorrow’s trade take advantage will placing the proper stop loss minimizing your risk to 2% of your account balance. Many of the commodity markets were lower again today due to the fact that the U.S dollar hit a new 6 month high and I still do believe that the federal government wants lower oil prices because Russia’s economy is based on high oil prices and there’s no better way to hurt the Russians than push crude oil back down to $80 a barrel so continue to sell this market as I remain bearish. Crude oil futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average with the next major support around 96.50 if that level is broken I think you will retest the March lows of around 94.25 so continue to play this to the downside.

Silver Futures

Silver futures in the September contract are settling around 20.40 an ounce finishing down about $.25 for the trading week while still trading below their 20 but above their 100 day moving average hitting a 5 week low and if you are currently bearish silver I would sell at today’s price while placing my stop above the 10 day high which is 21.12 risking around $.50 or $2,500 per contract as the chart structure is outstanding currently. Many of the commodity markets are going lower because of the U.S dollar hitting a 6 month high against the Euro currency as I think that trend is going to continue here in the short term. The volatility in silver is extremely low at the current time and I would assume with all the worldwide problems that volatility will start to increase however prices still look weak in my opinion as the Federal Reserve is cutting back on the quantitative easing which is also a negative influence on precious metals prices as the fundamentals currently are neutral to weak.
TREND: LOWER

Silver Futures

Silver futures in the September contract finished the week down about $.30 to close this Friday at 20.60 ending on a positive note up about $.18 closing right near session highs as the trend is now lower hitting a 4 week low so I’m neutral this market sitting on the sidelines waiting for another trend to develop, however if you are bearish I would sell at today’s price of 20.60 while placing my stop loss above the 10 day high which was on Monday’s trade at 21.32 risking around $.70 for $3,500 per contract as the chart structure currently is very solid. I’ve was recommending a long silver futures position when prices broke above 20.02 in late June while getting stopped out last week at the 10 day low as prices have broken down as the Malaysian airliner crisis has settled down as deflation currently is in the air not inflation as the U.S dollar continues to rally against the Euro currency as many of the commodity markets have been heading lower. Silver futures are trading below their 20 but still above their 100 day moving average telling you that trend currently is mixed and if you’re not looking to sell at today’s price level I would sit on the sidelines and trade another market that has a stronger trend.
TREND: MIXED

Silver Futures

Silver futures in the September contract rallied $.35 cents this week as tensions between Israel and Hamas have sent prices to 4 month highs at 21.48 with the next major resistance at $22 as I’ve been recommending a long position when prices hit a 4 week high breaking above 20.02 about 3 weeks ago so continue to place a stop below the 10 day low as the chart structure is outstanding as that level currently stands at 20.82 risking around $.70 or $3,500 per contract at these price levels. Silver has been going higher in recent weeks as this commodity has solid demand due to electronics and many other products that currently use silver and if you’ve been following any of my previous blogs for the last several months I thought prices were extremely cheap especially compared to the rest of the commodity markets so continue to be long while placing your stop at the 2 week low as prices are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the trend remains higher.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract went out on a sour note this shortened holiday trading session down $12 at 1,318 reacting negative to the U.S jobs report which came out at 288,000 new jobs as the economy is improving as the S&P 500 hit all-time highs once again today as the money flow is coming out of gold and into equities and that has been this precious metals problem for quite some time as there is not a lot of demand for gold currently. I am sitting on the sidelines in this market but I have a couple of trading recommendations if you are bullish gold and think prices will continue to move higher buy at today’s price of 1,318 place your stop below the 10 day low of 1,305 risking $1,300 per contract and if you’re bearish gold and think that its finally topped out you would sell at today’s price while placing your stop above Tuesday’s high of 1,335 risking $17 or $1,700 per contract as the chart structure has become very tight in the last 2 weeks. As I’ve talked about in previous blogs I do believe the stock market will continue to move higher and I believe that gold here in the short term still looks negative in my opinion unless something crazy comes out of Iraq.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract basically finished unchanged for the trading week with very little volatility trading at 1,319 still right near a 3 month high and if your currently bullish this market I would buy a futures contract at today’s price while placing my stop below the 2 week low which currently stands at 1,260 risking around $6,000 per contract, however that chart structure will improve dramatically in the next couple of days as volatility has really slowed down as we enter the Fourth of July holiday weekend. I am currently sitting on the sidelines in this market as I’m waiting for better chart structure to develop which is already currently happening and if you’re looking to get short this market I would sell at today’s price while placing your stop above today’s high of 1,325 an ounce risking around $600 per contract as if prices break that level to the upside I would have to think the trend has definitely turned bullish. Gold futures are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average as the chaos in Iraq is certainly propelling prices in recent weeks as gold had a bearish trend for quite some time actually hitting 1,240 earlier in the month so I’m not totally convinced where prices are going to and that’s why I’m sitting on the sidelines.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract went out last Friday at 1,274 exploding this week settling around 1,316 up about $42 and all that activity was in Thursday’s trade as prices traded up over $40 due to the craziness that’s going on in Iraq and the fact that the entire country basically imploded in weeks after the U.S spent almost $1 trillion and 4,500 deaths Iraq is worse off today than it was 10 years ago as investors finally woke up and started buying the gold market. Gold futures are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average hitting a two-month high and as a trend follower I have to believe that prices are going higher however at the current time I am on the sidelines due to the fact that there is terrible chart structure so I’m waiting for a better chart pattern to develop.

The problem with Iraq is the situation is not going to go away like the Syrian problem as this is going to be around for years to come and could spread into other countries and don’t forget the fact that Iran is developing a nuclear bomb which is amazing to me how no country has stopped that production and that will be a huge problem down the road as well as interesting times are back in the precious metals as volatility certainly looks like it’s going to increase to much higher levels.
