Been trading PL for about 7 years. Looked into PA, but a little too thin for me to trade. PL has a big seasonal long move between xmas and new years. Don't tell anyone!!!! LOL. Like to see PA moving the same direction as PL. Made half of my income off PL this year. Day trade it also. Slippage can be a little high at times.

I do not know of any complete supply and demand reports, comparable with those mentioned by you, for metals. I receive Shanghai copper warehouse stocks and LME copper stocks from the Hightower Report, but I am sure that you can find them at the Internet sites of these exchanges, too. There you might also find these figures for other metals.

Best regards, Myrrdin

New pattern?

My aesthetic eye says Gold down today may be the start of a trend?

Via Google I found some information regarding open outcry at this site:
Futures Trading Hours - Commodity Futures And Options Daily Schedule .

Gold futures: 8.20 - 13.30 (ET) .

Currently I hold the following positions:

GCJ
GCJ-ECH
PLJ
I expect inflation to grow during the next couple of months, and, thus, gold price to rise. As I am not sure about the Euro I hedged some futures with a short Euro position.

According to MRCI these trades are suppported from December until end of February, and should move sidewards for the next couple of months.

COT data is bullish.

Best regards, Myrrdin

I just entered the SIZ-GCZ spread as a longterm trade.

The spread currently is at approx. USD -45,000, the recent high is just below USD -53,000.

First target is around USD -35,000, second target around USD -10,000.

But it might take years to get there.

Best regards, Myrrdin

So your hypothesis is that Silver will outperform Gold, but your doing that as 1 contract:1 contract trade? Isn't the danger that the trade becomes dominated by the Gold position since it's so much larger? More specifically if Silver goes up 50%, and Gold goes up 35%, your hypothesis would be correct but you would actually lose money. On the other hand if Silver goes down 25%, and Gold goes down 20%, your hypothesis was wrong but you would actually make money.
