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.

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.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract settled last Friday at 1,252 an ounce while going out in New York today Friday the 13th at 1,274 an ounce trading higher by over $20 an ounce bucking its recent bearish trend. Currently I’m sitting on the sidelines and waiting for another trend to develop as the reason gold snap backed was in the last couple days 2 major cities in Iraq have been taken over by Al Qaeda and it’s a possibility that Baghdad is next bringing the possibility of U.S troops once again sending crude oil and the precious metals higher today. Gold is trading above its 20 day but still below 100 day moving average which stands at 1,296 so keep a close eye on this market as there’s a possibility prices may have bottomed in the short term due to the geopolitical risk. If you believe that prices have bottomed my recommendation would be to buy at today’s price while placing my stop below the recent low of 1,240 risking around $3,300 per contract in case the trend does change and if the Iraqi situation really flares up gold prices would move sharply higher in the short term just on short covering alone. The volatility in my opinion will start to increase over the next several months as it has remained low for some time now so you might want to look at put or call options because the premiums are relatively cheap.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract traded in a very tight and narrow trading range this week going out last Friday at 1,246 and settling this Friday at 1,251 up about $5 for the week, however I’m still recommending a short position when prices broke below 1,267 placing your stop loss above the 10 day high which currently stands at 1,290 risking around $40 or $4,000 per contract from today’s price levels. Gold futures are trading below their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that trend is lower as major support is at 1,240 and if that level is broken I would think you have to retest 1,200 as the same old story continues with the S&P 500 hitting all-time highs once again as money is coming out of the gold sector into equities and I think that trend is going to continue especially with low interest rates staying around for quite some time. At the current time there are no geopolitical events that one must rush into the gold market with the stock market continuing its trend higher it’s difficult for gold to rally at this time so I do see lower prices ahead but make sure you do place your stop loss at the 2 week high in case the trend does change as an investor or trader you always must have an exit strategy.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the August contract finished down for the 5th straight trading session finishing lower by 45 dollars this week at 1,245 an ounce continuing its bearish trend trading below its 20 and 100 day moving average as I remain bearish gold prices as I think there’s a high probability of a retest of 1,200 and if that level is broken look at a re test near the contract low of 1,180 as prices look very bearish in my opinion. You have to ask yourself at this time would you rather own gold or stocks as investors are choosing to sell their gold and are buying stocks and it seems like on a daily basis. The problem with gold right now is everybody’s buying the S&P 500 which hit another all-time high today as there is a very little interest in purchasing gold at the current time especially with bond yields continuing to move lower as the money is going into bonds and stocks and out of gold. Gold futures are still higher by about $60 in the year 2014 but traded as high as 1,390 earlier in the year and has given back much of this year’s gains that it had and I do think the trend continues to the downside and if you took my original recommendation place your stop above the 10 day high minimizing risk in case the trend does change. Gold is famous for having large washout days meaning it will sell off $50 in one day and volatility will spike as I said in yesterday’s blog & I sense one of those days is coming as the trend seems to be getting stronger.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the June contract basically traded unchanged for the trading week with very little volatility as this market has gone sideways over the last 7 weeks and is looking to breakout soon in my opinion. If you look at the daily chart we are starting to form a tight wedge and I do think if prices break the critical level of 1,265 the bear market will continue however if prices break out above 1,310 a bottom might be in place and time will only tell so at this point I’m sitting on the sidelines as there is no trend in this market, however this is starting to become an interesting chart, so keep a close eye on those 2 price levels as the longer we consolidate the more powerful the breakout becomes. Gold futures are trading just an eyelash below their 20 and 100 day moving average as volatility is extremely low at the current time so if you’re bullish this market I would look at bull call option spreads because the premiums are relatively cheap and if you’re bearish this market I would look at bear put spreads limiting your risk to what the premium costs as gold certainly will become extremely volatile once again it’s just a matter of time.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the June contract are trading right at their 20 and 100 day moving average which doesn’t happen very often telling you that this market has basically been going sideways over the last 2 months with very little volatility is as prices seem to be bottoming out around the 1,270 – 1,280 at the current time I’m sitting on the sidelines in this market as there is no current trend but a breakout seems to becoming in my opinion as I do think with low interest rates remaining for quite some time that gold prices are currently bottoming out.

If you’re looking at buying this market at today’s price of 1,294 I would place your stop loss below the 4 week low 1,275 an ounce risking around $20 per contract or $2,000 if you’re looking at a bearish position I would sell at today’s price while placing my stop above the 10 day high which stands at 1,310 risking around $1,700 per contract as the gold chart has excellent chart structure allowing you to place tight stops. The story this week was a lot of money going into the U.S treasuries as investors think the U.S could be slipping into a recession and if that is true you would have to assume that gold prices will benefit from bad economic news so keep a close eye on this market.
