Natural gas at resistance

Pavel Hála | Analyses | 1. 4. 2013

Natural Gas is at $4 which was an unbreakable resistance that turned the price down last year. Actually, the price broke over $4 on Wednesday but pulled back on Thursday and is hovering slightly below $4 right now. Check out our chart of most liquid May future contract: So what now? Will the last year…

Big move in grains

Pavel Hála | Analyses | 29. 3. 2013

We saw a big move down in grains yesterday. That’s because USDA released their prospective plantings and grain stocks reports. Farmers want to plant more acres of both corn and wheat this year. Corn estimate is at a record 97.3 million acres against 97.16 last year. Soybeans came in at fourth highest ever at 77.1…

Sugar reversal

Pavel Hála | Trading ideas | 25. 2. 2013

Sugar has been in a downtrend for quite some time. I think this is about to change. This is the daily OHLC chart from app.spreadcharts.com: Yep, no sign of a turnaround. So why do I think this may happen? Because of the internal structure of the market, i.e. distribution of futures positions between particular market participants….

Soybean oil spread with great profit potential

Pavel Hála | Trading ideas | 21. 2. 2013

Today I have one more volatile (and therefore risky) spread. But despite volatility, this trade still has a very good RRR (risk reward ratio). The trade I’m talking about is the soybean oil interdelivery spread ZLZ13-ZLN13: Based on the picture above the technical setup is not great but still favorable. Price seems to have found…

Crowded hogs spread

Pavel Hála | Trading ideas | 19. 2. 2013

Lean hogs are good for spread trading. So good that many people are watching it. I’ve seen recommendations to enter this trade during past weeks in many newsletters and from people on Twitter. The spread I’m talking about is HEM13-HEJ13. So, as I’ve said, most people who wished to enter this spread are probably already…

One of my favorite natural gas trades

Pavel Hála | Trading ideas | 18. 2. 2013

Time has come to enter one of my favorite spread trades. It’s in NYMEX natural gas – NGQ13-NGM13. I’ve made money on this spread every single year during last five years. I consider NG to be a great commodity for spread trading. This spread trade is also very conservative because you can set just a…

US Dollar up?

Pavel Hála | Analyses | 14. 2. 2013

The US Dollar is on the verge of breaking up. At least in my opinion. And I think the upcoming move will be a big one. Gold and silver will probably get crushed. As you can see in the March Dollar index (DXH13) future daily chart the dollar is completing a bullish wedge pattern: Maybe…

Wheat spread trade

Pavel Hála | Trading ideas | 13. 2. 2013

I’m watching one CBOT wheat interdelivery spread. It’s ZWZ13-ZWN13. Seasonality is pushing the spread up: ZWZ11-ZWN11 was an abnormal year and it’s distorting our chart. Luckily in our app you can interact with charts and that includes our seasonality analysis. If you click on the ZWZ11-ZWN11 in the legend or the little orange square beside…
