The sugar market has made a significant upside move over the past few days and weeks.
Weather concerns for part of the growing areas in Asia, as well as strength in Brazilian real contributed to this rally.
From a technical point of view, I feel this market is overbought and over-extended, but when fundamentals take over, you can use the charts for wall decoration…That being said, I will be looking for signs of exhaustion on the daily and weekly charts.
The chart below is a monthly chart of sugar, and you will see that we are trading right against recent highs and I got a sell signal in the shape of my red diamond. However, I don’t have a crystal ball, hence I will look on the daily chart for a similar clue before trying to go against the trend and go short.
Wishing all of you a great trading month in December.
My name is Ilan Levy-Mayer and I am the Vice President and Senior Futures Broker at Cannon Trading. I came up with the following personal observations after serving online traders worldwide for more than 17 years.
8 Steps to Successful Day-Trading
The following steps are guides to progress, and are not necessarily in sequential order. Some of them are always required, but each futures trader is different and will relate to these stages in their own ways. While attempting to learn and progress, one must keep in mind that futures trading is risky and can involve significant losses.
Hopefully if you are already trading you have completed your initial education: contract specs, trading hours, futures brokers, platforms, the opportunities as well as the risk and need to use risk capital in futures, and so on. Understanding this information is essential to futures trading. The second type of education is ongoing: learning about trading techniques, the evolution of futures markets, different trading tools, and more.
2. Find a System
I am definitely not advising you to go on the web and subscribe to a “black box” system (using buy/sell triggers if don’t know why they are being generated). What I am advising is developing a trading technique: a general set of rules and a trading concept. As you progress, you may want to put the different rules and indicators into a computerized system, but the most important factor is to have a focus and a plan. Don’t just wake up in the morning and trade “blank.”
