How to Trade Copper Futures

March 28th, 2014 Filed under Commodity Trading, Future Trading News, Future Trading Platform, Futures Trading | Comment (0)

Copper Futures Trading is one of the most popular vehicles in the industrial metals market. Copper is used in a wide variety of markets such as construction, plumbing, manufacturing and architecture. With such a wide array of usages, trading copper offers many opportunities for gain. More and more investors are looking to raw commodities as trading vehicles as they provide more liquidity and volatility within their respective markets. Trading raw commodities as futures contracts also allows for better price transparencies.

Copper is usually a great indicator of economic growth within a region. As the demand for copper rises, the more valuable the commodity becomes given its vital contributions to industrial and urban development. Worldwide copper consumption has been on the steady rise since 2011, with China being the world’s top copper consumer. Industrial copper producing companies use the futures market to hedge against losses and for price mitigation. Investors generally use the copper futures market to leverage their capital against price fluctuations to generate returns on their investments.

A copper futures contract represents 25,000 pounds of copper. Standard trading hours operate from Sunday through Friday beginning at 6:00 p.m. until 5:15 p.m. the following day Central Standard Time, allowing a 23 hour trading platform. The 45 minute break allows for the close out on the previous day’s results. Trading in copper futures requires paying close attention to market fluctuations and remaining active on developing markets. Because copper moves within the market at high volatility, neglecting a position for even a short period of the day can be very costly. Below are a few of the most popular exchanges copper futures trade on:

Thanks everyone who voted!! Appreciate your help in winning the #1 blog for futures trading by Trader Planet!! Please feel free to forward our daily blog to friends and other fellow traders who might be interested.

Another two markets I like to touch on when it comes to “other markets to daytrade beside the mini SP 500” are crude Oil and Gold futures.

More than a few similarities between the two markets.

They are both volatile, can move VERY fast. I have seen some very large moves happen in matter of minutes if not seconds. The “fear & greed” factor really plays a role in these specific two markets.

Both have active trading hours starting with Far East trading around 10 PM est all the way to the next morning until about 3 PM est. Good volume generally speaking but not close to the mini SP or ten year notes. So you may see some slippage on stops but the volume is more than enough to trade size.

Each tick on gold is $10, so every dollar move =$100 against you or in your favor. Crude is similar, each tick = $10. One full $1 move = $1000.

Both markets were quiet today relatively speaking but even on a quiet day, the range on gold was  $21 or = $2100 wide using one futures contract. Crude ranges today was less than $1 or about $890 between hi/lo.

I like using overbought/ oversold indicators on the two markets as well as using range / Renko charts.

If you never traded these markets before, I highly recommend exploring in simulation/ demo mode. get a feel for the explosiveness, volatility, personality for a few weeks before trying in live mode.

As always, any questions, please feel free to email me.

Two charts from today’s session of gold and crude for your review below ( if you like to try the charts I am using along with indicators displayed, send me an email):


Crude 18 ticks range bar Feb. 11th 2014

CLE - Crude Lights (Globex), Equalized Active Continuation - Range Bar 18 Ticks Units

Gold, 36 ticks range bar Feb. 11th 2014


GCE - Gold (Globex), Equalized Active Continuation - Range Bar =, 18 Ticks Units

GCE – Gold (Globex), Equalized Active Continuation – Range Bar =, 18 Ticks Units

Different Ways to Invest in Commodities and Futures

October 28th, 2013 Filed under Commodity Trading, Futures Trading | Comments Off on Different Ways to Invest in Commodities and Futures

When it comes to investing in commodities/futures there are several different ways to do so. I’ve been a futures broker at Cannon Trading Company for about 4 years and I wanted to touch base on a few different ways I have seen clients trade and invest in futures and commodities over the years.

I have seen many investors (small and large) participate in trading ETFs or ETF funds. With ETFs you do not own the actual commodity but you are looking to track the performance on either a single commodity or commodity index containing many different commodities through either its physical storage or derivatives positions in the market.

I do not accommodate trading ETFs or ETF funds with my actual clients. I am a registered futures broker and here at Cannon Trading Company we do not accommodate ETF trading for our clients. Please keep in mind the differences when trading ETFs versus commodities and futures. With ETFs you may experience management fees where as if you have a self directed futures and commodities trading account you will not experience those types of fees. Also when trading futures, unless you have a limited power of attorney on your account where you authorize another individual to trade your account, there is not a third party making your trading decisions and trading your account on your behalf. Here, at Cannon Trading Company many futures/commodities trader have self directed accounts where he or she makes their own decisions when it comes to trading.
