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.

I hate to be a killjoy, but we aren't in the clear unless we either have already taken profit or if there isn't a strong freeze in Brazil next week.

Reminder bump

ron99 View Post
The last 5 years in a row, CL inventories, after being down the prior 3-4 weeks, are up for the 3rd week of July.

So if you are wanting to sell CL calls I would do it before Tuesday PM's API inventory report.

Of course, past performance may not be indicative of future results.

Quoting 
Destin Pipeline declared a force majeure on its US Gulf of Mexico natural gas pipeline system Sunday due to "high levels of liquid in Destin's offshore segment."

The operator said the process of removing these liquids from Destin's slug catcher would take up to seven days, after which the force majeure would be lifted and deliveries to the Pascagoula processing plant in Mississippi would resume.

affects this
Quoting 
BP's 250,000 bpd Thunder Horse Gulf of Mexico oil platform has been shut by Destin Gas pipeline work. The Thunder Horse platform is the largest offshore production platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

So this major oil well, and maybe others, will be shut down this week which should lead to lower oil inventories on the reports next week Tues & Wed.

If I am correct oil will drop this week and then rise midweek next week.

Of course, other factors may come into play.
