Below are my comments on the opportunities I’m watching based on the day’s price action.

GC – Gold

Gold traded up to the 61.8% retracement level again today but was unable to close above this level.

ZL – Soybean Oil

Soybean Oil was lower during the overnight session coming back to test the 34 level but recovered to finish the day slightly higher posting a candle with a long lower shadow. I had an order in to buy during the dip but I was too greedy and the price didn’t trade low enough to trigger my order before reversing.

SB – Sugar

Sugar rallied back up to the 61.8% retracement level today before reversing to finish the day off the highs and post a candle with an upper shadow.

CL – Crude Oil

Oil continued its recent strong run up today surpassing the 61.8% retracement level of the recent range. If the break is credible the potential target is $61.44

DX - US Dollar Index

The dollar continues its downward momentum trading down to the 61.8% retracement of the recent uptrend. If this level breaks the potential target could be 88.34.

Review of August 19 Trading Action

I added to my Eurodollar position and took a long position in Gold today.

GE – Eurodollar

Trade: Short 5 contracts of December 2016 Eurodollar
Entry Price: 99.08
Risk: 99.14 risking $750
Target: Short term - 98.30, Long Term – 97.90

Daily Comment: Eurodollars were lower today closing back at the 200 SMA.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


HE – Lean Hogs

Trade: Short 1 contract of October Lean Hogs
Entry Price: $0.6025
Risk: $0.6220 risking $0
Target: $0.46

Daily Comment: Hogs finished the day higher posting a bullish full bodied candle.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


QO – Mini Gold

Trade: Long 1 contract of December Mini Gold
Entry Price: $1,345.50
Risk: $1,334 risking $575
Target: Short term - $1,419, Long Term – $1,619

Reasons for entering the trade:

Technical: Gold has been trading within a tight range between the 61.8% retracement of the recent range and the 40 SMA. Prices have been well supported at the 40 SMA posting a series of higher highs so I took a position at the next intersection with the 40 SMA as it approaches the 61.8% retracement level in anticipation of prices breaking this level.

Fundamental: Uncertainty caused by Central bank policy is driving the price of Gold.

Daily Comment: Gold was lower today posting a bearish full bodied candle but held around the 40 SMA again.

ZL – Soybean Oil

Soybean Oil was lower during the overnight session coming back to test the 34 level again today but recovered to finish the day only slightly lower posting a candle with a long lower shadow. I tried to be less greedy today and moved my order to just above the 34 level at 34.03 and missed the entry by 1 tick with the low of the day at 34.04.

Week in Review - 15 - 19 August Pt I


Trades for the week:

- Added to Short position in Eurodollars.
- Entered a Long position in Gold.
- Submitted orders to enter a Long position in Soybean Oil but was not filled

I’ll start the weekly update with comments on my open positions and attempted trades.

GE - Eurodollar

Eurodollars attempted to rally early in the week but prices quickly traded back down to the 200 SMA. The case for a bearish move in Eurodollars still looks good at this stage and I would be willing to add to this position on a close below 99.04.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


HE – Lean Hogs

Hogs rallied strongly on Monday but then posted a bearish engulfing candle the next day only to see prices rally again to finish the week higher. I am willing to remain in this trade while prices are below the falling 40 SMA.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


GC – Gold

Gold continued its attempts to surpass the 61.8% retracement this week to no avail but each failed attempt continues to be supported at the 40 SMA. The price action on Friday was negative and if there is any further negative action on Monday I will bail on this trade quickly.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


ZL – Soybean Oil

Soybean Oil had a massive week surging higher on Monday and Wednesday. The attempted retraces on Thursday and Friday were well supported around the 34 level. Soybean Oil offered 4 potential entries and I’m disappointed to have missed all 4 of them. I will continue my attempts to get on board next week.

Week in Review - 15 - 19 August Pt II

Below are my comments on other markets I see opportunities in.

SB – Sugar

Sugar had another attempt at surpassing the 61.8% retracement of the recent corrective range this week but was unsuccessful. Prices continue to hold at the 40 SMA.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


CL – Crude Oil

Oil continued strongly upward this week surpassing the 61.8% retracement of the recent range. Further evidence is required before concluding that this level is broken due to the indecisive price action on Friday.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


DX – US Dollar Index

The Dollar was sharply lower this week trading down to the 61.8% retracement level but prices held at this level.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


NG – Natural Gas

Natural Gas prices were higher this week before negative action on Friday wiped out most of the week’s gains. Natural Gas is still holding above the 200 SMA though.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


HG – Copper

Copper bounced off the 200 SMA on Monday but was unable to surpass the short term moving averages. The fact that Copper prices have been able to hold above the 200 SMA is supportive.

Below are my comments on other markets of note.

LE – Live Cattle

Cattle was sharply lower this week posting a lower close each day this week. The chances of a bullish outcome in Cattle now look remote.

KC – Coffee

Coffee put in a new low for the recent move on Wednesday before rallying to finish the week back at the short term moving averages.

6E - Euro

The Euro rallied strongly early in the week but paused near the 61.8% retracement of the recent range.

ZN - 10 Year Note

Review of August 23 Trading Action

Below are my comments on the opportunities I’m watching based on the day’s price action.

CL – Crude Oil

Oil continued lower during the overnight session before rallying back up to the 61.8% retracement level. The rally paused at this level with Oil finishing off the day’s highs and posting an indecisive candle.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


NG – Natural Gas

Natural Gas rallied strongly again today trading up towards the 61.8% retracement level of the recent corrective range. If prices can surpass this level a good buying opportunity may arise.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


KC - Coffee

Coffee opened lower but reversed to finish the day higher and post another bullish candle.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


SB – Sugar

Sugar initially traded lower retesting the 61.8% retracement level but bounced from this level to finish the day higher and post a bullish candle. An entry signal has now been triggered and I will look to buy on any retrace back towards the 61.8% retracement level as buying at current prices is outside my risk tolerance level.

SB – Sugar

Trade: Long 1 contract of October Sugar
Entry Price: 0.2042
Risk: 0.1989 risking $683
Target: Short Term – 0.2277, Long Term 0.2640

Reasons for entering the trade:

Technical: Prices penetrated the 61.8% retracement of the recent correction.

Fundamental: A deficit in supply is expected this year and new demand has hit the market.

Daily Comment: Sugar opened higher but failed to hold the ground above the 20.80 level reversing sharply to finish the day lower. Prices finished off the day’s lows back at the 61.8% retracement level but still posted a bearish candle. Based on the day’s price action the entry order appears to be the wrong move and I will re-evaluate whether to continue with this trade before tomorrow’s open.
