Soybeans: Soybeans play a critical role in the global food ecosystem. The oil from the crop is used in many products including bread, crackers, cakes, cookies and salad dressings, while the meal from crushed soybeans serves as the main source of food for livestock. Soybean oil also serves as a feedstock in the production of biofuels. The growing need for food and fuel in emerging market economies could drive demand for soybeans. Three countries – the United States, Brazil and Argentina – account for 80% of global production.

“In 2017, the percentage of S&P 500 sales from foreign countries increased slightly, after two years of measured decreases. The overall rate for 2017 was 43.6%, up from 43.2% in 2016, but down from 44.3% in 2015 and 47.8% in 2014, which was at least an 11-year record high. S&P 500 foreign sales represent products and services produced and sold outside of the U.S.“

The recent upswing in NG prices has been an incredible trade for many, yet we believe a top is now forming in Natural Gas that could catch many traders by surprise.  The recent upside gap in price and upward price volatility would normally not concern long traders.  They would likely view this as a tremendous success for their long NG positions, yet we believe this move is about to come to a dramatic end – fairly quickly.

When I was writing technical analysis reports for the customers of a major global bank, I received some interesting feedback from one of the bank's relationship managers. The customers liked the reports, she said, but it would be good if I made them less "technical." Making technical analysis reports less technical, hmmm. (To be fair, it is actually good advice because striking a balance between technical details and readability is an art.) Sometimes, though, an explanation of a concept cannot help but delve into some detail. So please bear with me on this one.
Since there are a glut of fundamental and technical indicators available – many of which conflict – which do you follow? In other words, how do you react when the employment rate is dropping, but stocks rise to new highs on increased earnings? Should you buy when stocks are well below historical price-to-earnings ratios despite high volume selling? For every report and survey suggesting one direction, there is usually a contradicting indicator that suggests the opposite.
It was out of a need to account for such volatility that the Revised FED Model was created. This model essentially adds projected earnings to the analysis. In other words, if stock market earnings are expected to rise over the next year, then the FED Model is dependable and investors can simply compare earnings yields between bonds and stocks. But if stock market earnings are predicted to decline, then this strategy is ineffective. By accounting for projected earnings, the Revised Fed Model creates a more reliable method of investing.
If you miss even a small handful of these major moves higher, you can kiss a good portion of your long-term return goodbye. According to J.P. Morgan Asset Management's report, for the 20-year period between Jan. 3, 1995 and Dec. 31, 2014 (including both the dot-com bubble and Great Recession) the S&P 500 returned 555% (9.9% annualized) for those investors who held on and never sold. If you missed just the 10 best days in terms of percentage gains over this more than 5,000-day period, your return was more than halved to 191%. 
Weather can play an important role in determining many commodity prices. In the agricultural sector, prolonged drought conditions or excessive rainfall can limit crop yields and cause prices to rise. In the energy sector, hurricanes, storms or extremely cold weather can curtail drilling or refining activity and create supply shortfalls. Severe winter weather can create excessive demand for heating and cause big increases in prices of commodities such as natural gas and heating oil. Extremely warm weather, on the other hand, could raise demand for electricity needed to power air conditioning units.
American stock exchanges aren't the only ones with extended trading hours. The Hong Kong Stock Exchange, for example, allows for a premarket session from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. local time prior to the market opening. The Toronto Stock Exchange gives traders a full hour after the close of the market, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. local time, to do additional trading.

So I had subscribed to the newsletter in the mid 2000's, and it correctly called the market peak back in the summer of 2005. I acted on that information and sold a rental property in the Central Valley (before it crashed more than 50%). Yes, I had to pay some taxes, but I kept my powder dry, and was prepared when the housing market bottomed out in 2010. When the timing newsletter issued its "buy" signal, I bought back in and caught most of the upside move. So this book/newsletter saved me a lot of money in getting me out of the market before the crash.
"Professor Zakamulin has written a much-needed comprehensive guide to market timing rules using eight types of moving averages, as well as related methods like MACD and the momentum rule. His thorough analysis applied to stock indices, bonds,currencies, and commodities clearly shows that trend following offers advantages after trading costs. It can protect one from loses when needed most and is a prudent investment strategy for medium and long-term investors. This is a landmark book that should help improve both academic and practitioner perception regarding the efficacy of trend following methods."
Placing a sell/stop in the correct place works great for the 1 X leveraged etf, but when you are in a 3 X leveraged etf setting the sell/stop is a totally different game. Very rarely do I let the original sell/stop be hit before I will exit the trade as you have to give the stock some wiggle room when you first take a position. As more information becomes available you can start to make adjustments to your sell/stop mentally. A 3 X etf can get away from you in a heartbeat so one has to pay very close attention at all times.

What separates commodities from other types of goods is that they are standardized and interchangeable with other goods of the same type. These features make commodities fungible. This means that two equivalent units of the same commodity should have mostly uniform prices any place in the world (* excluding local factors such as the cost of transportation and taxes).

This website is intended as a source of information only, not financial advice.

Commodities can fall in value as well as rise in value: substantial losses can be made commodity commodity trading or trading with CFD services.
