Where to learn how to trade Commodities.

Hi all,

I'm interested in trading commodities (not through ETF's) and I'm looking to get some advice on how to start learning the commodities market.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I need some structure and I'm struggling.

Thanks,

DT10k

Material


I am not sure what you already know, so i will post somethings to study.
First what markets do you want to Trade? have you Decided on this already...what fits your Risk Tolerance?
I would Definately open a Demo account and see what markets might work for you as far as:
- Risk Tolerance= Futures or Commodity markets are Risky as in they can take away as much money as you will allow them to if you are wrong on the Direction of Price action.
- Active Trading Times for that market
- Margin Requirements
- Contract Specifications
- Contract Expiration months.
Most Brokers list this info on their site.

I would Study: Technical Analysis of Charts...there are many sites for this.
If you already have a Demo account...then start looking at Price action of the Different size Charts.
The Demo account is where you need to spend your time looking for what you will be learning along the way.
The main thing is do not risk more on a Trade than your account size could endure= Do Not take a Big Loss.
I will try and get some Study Info for you after i see more posts and what you might already know.

Haven't decided on what exact markets I'd like to trade. I'm thinking of trying the Commodity Futures market, I'm trying to learn NinjaTrader so I can automate my trades.

Question about Technical Analysis of charts, with Futures trading are the swings in price determined mainly on external factors (supply / demand) impacting the underlying derivative? E.g. Potential that US might perform air strikes on Syria and that will cause the price of oil to rise? I've traded the equities market and have a good understanding of technical indicators and studies of price movement, position sizing, and risk tolerance. Are there Commodity related analysis that assist in your trades?

Here are some Reports that would effect Futures Markets...this is CL=Crude Oil....Volatile Market....Much Price Movement...High Risk Tolerance Market.
But it shows what the outcome is for these Reports.
There are things like you mention that could effect Price to move.
You seem to already have some Experience with certain markets, so i would just work with Ninjatrader like you mentioned and apply what you already know to get started.

I don't look at other analysis. It's bad for my psychology.

Take in care that anything related to the arabic world like wars, nuclear programs.. affects to oil price. If the US think on an attack, the price of crude oil will rise 'cause it can't export his oil.

Crude oil is my favorite commodity and it has a great volatility for intraday trading.

Be carefull on trading wednesdays with the crude oil supply!

Good trading!!

Not mentioned commitment of trades should definitely be on ur list :
Commitments of Traders - CFTC

What your looking for is retail to be on one side and large speculators the other side that provides best opportunities if trend following.
