AU vs US bond spreads

Check this out from the ASX, this was a popular spread in the past, not sure what it's like now though but worth some investigation: http://www.asx.com.au/documents/products/asx_interest_rate_futures_research_aus_us_bond_spread.pdf

If you want to trade London/EU session after work (I presume as you are AU based) then you could look at Euribor/Short Sterling/Eurodollar markets for rates. Due to CB intervention and ZIRP/NIRP these markets are pretty bad for retail.

For commodities you could look at products such as Sugar, Coffee, Cocoa, Brent Crude Oil, Low sulphur Gasoil and many others. Have a look at Ice Future Europe for a complete list.

For index spreads you could look at the 5/2 FESX/FDAX ratio spread.

This was a good thread - not sure what happened

The new crop bean spreads over the pas week provide an example of reduced corrrelation between the price of the nearby and the spread. Flat price of X has dropped approx $1.30 while the X/K has lost approx 10 to 15 cents. This is what I was trying to suggest above, that the correlation between the nearby and the spread will approach zero as the spread approaches full carry. The spread simply has nowhere to go (assuming full carry is not breached. I have only seen it happen a couple of times and for good reason).

@brentf if you see this, you should start posting again if possible.. u gave good insight especially on bean spreads.. good reading for a newbie to spreads like me

I was curious to know what strategies underlie your spread trading. Do you look for historical price differences between two markets to spread? In an algorithmic trading system, would such price differences trigger a trade signal? Perhaps you’re looking at seasonal tendencies. In this case, would dates on the calendar trigger a trade signal?

Most of my spread trading is seasonal trading.

You find some information about my strategies in the thread "Commodities Futures Trading" > "Seasonal Trades".
