Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

mike,

is there anywhere on the forum where i can find harmonic rotation studies of CL? i apologize if this seems lazy

thanks.

Pretty sure someone shared them in the master homework thread:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/20164-master-homework-statistics-thread.html

If not, there is at least a spreadsheet in there that shows you how to do it yourself.

IMO oil will be staying here or going lower the next 3 months. Record refinery oil demand now will drop off when summer driving is done. Oil production has not dropped enough to hold prices.

Refinery input peaks about now and then drops off to Nov.

That means that oil inventory will start growing again.

Hedge fund longs have increased the last 2 weeks. If they have to bail out then prices will drop further than expected.

I don't do spreads. Maybe @SMCJB can help you. He does spreads.

@CobblersAwls on seasonality, would you rather look at Percentage of Up/Down Years or Avg. Percentile Change of that month?
I understand the latter is more valuable but when I plot it against price looks like another delayed indicator. Maybe it is not a timing signal I don't know...

Hello,

Sorry for the delayed reply, was on holiday and only just got back last night. It's a good Q and one I will have to think about. I don't know too much about seasonalities but am just strating to look at them amongst others as I broaden my knowledge.

I suppose the best thing to do would be to look at the seasonal patterns of each month coupled with the context of each year - perhaps during some years there were events (war?) that lead to the demand for oil to change against the norm? You could then consider this for future months of interest in order to guage whether you think normal seasonal trends will hold true or whether other macro factors may override them. Then again I know very little...

Cheers.

I'm been out the last 6 days and not 100% caught up yet.

Front end of the curve has been hit hardest with Sep/Oct down ~30c, Oct/Nov down ~20c, Nov/Dec down ~10c. Most of the other spreads have only widen approximately 2c though. While this seems like a drastic curve shift I've felt that these 3 spreads have been a little high for a while now, and actually had a trade on betting this curve shift would happen. Unfortunately I took most of it in the week before it all collapsed - very bad timing on my behalf but I don't like having positions that close to the prompt. Ignoring prompt Sep, the front 8/9 spreads look relatively in line to me - for the first time in a while.

As for taking an outright directional bet here, I have no opinion. In the last year the Month 2 - Month 7 spread has approximately a $9 range and we are close to being in the lower quartile of that range (chart 1). Saying that prices are now about as low as they have been in the last year, but contango is not anywhere near as steep as it was last time we were at these prices (chart 2). My gut feel is more in line with chart 2, ie that contango should be steeper here given outright prices, but that's not a trade I have on, or one that I necessarily want. Sorry for nothing more helpful.
