Short-Term Options in Commodities: Potential Benefits and Applications Part 2

By Adila McHich CMEGroup.com

Short-terms options are flexible tools for tactical trading strategies to mitigate specific event risks or make a directional bet on price movement in the short term. The trading volume of these types of options in commodities has grown tremendously in recent years because they appeal to different types of traders regardless of their time horizon or thesis. This article, which is Part 2 of a two-part series explains the macro and idiosyncratic (commodity-specific) market events and their applications using short-term options in commodities.

Commodity prices are determined based on a confluence of macro and idiosyncratic factors. As such, commodity price fluctuations are largely driven by fundamental (supply/demand) and cyclical factors (macro) tied to the business cycle and the economic activity, in addition to other exogenous market events such as geopolitical risk and weather events. These various factors can sometimes morph into a jump risk (tail risk), especially if the market event is significant enough and unanticipated. The short duration of these options offers more flexibility to target a specific market event.

Examples of economic data releases:

  • ISM manufacturing index
  • Central bank announcements
  • GDP growth
  • Unemployment rate
  • Consumer Price Index, Producer Price Index
  • Consumer confidence, etc.

Example 1: Using Crude Oil Weekly options for directional trade on the ISM

A trader expects oil prices to rise in response to the release of the ISM Manufacturing index which measures the activity of the manufacturing sector. This leading indicator is important and closely watched by the market because it is used as a proxy for the overall state of the U.S. economy. A level of 50 and above reflects economic expansion while below 50 signals a contraction. The ISM tends to move in tandem with oil prices in the long run as the result of their linkage from the demand side. Chart 1 depicts the intertwined relationship between ISM index and price changes of oil. The YoY oil prices changes are used to remove the cyclicality variations. An increase in ISM indicates a rise in manufacturing activity that requires more oil as input which would consequently lead to an increase in oil demand and prices. Additionally, this long-term linkage gives insight into the underlying momentum of the economy and oil markets and their projected trajectories. Though, this relationship can sometimes be decoupled in the short term due to other factors that affect oil prices such supply shocks (OPEC meeting, geopolitical event etc.)

Treasury Auctions and Earnings

By Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker

 

There’s no shortage of trade guidance / advice / market news available to provide futures traders with reasoning for a market move.  Charts showing a market’s direction – or lack thereof – technical indicators, even a trader’s gut reaction can qualify as a reason to enter a position.  For short-term traders, here are a few others that lately have moved the financial markets more than usual and are worthy of consideration:

 

Earnings reports: we’re heading into the tail end of earning season and while most of the major U.S. companies have released their quarterly reports, there are still some on the horizon that can be catalysts for jolts in the markets.

 

Treasury auctions: at regularly scheduled dates, the federal government auctions three types of securities: bills, notes, and Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS). The Treasury auctions an astonishing quantity of securities.  In calendar year 2003, it auctioned $3.42 trillion of securities: $2.78 trillion of bills, $616 billion of notes, and $26 billion of TIPS.  Lately, the results of some of these auctions have also jostled financial markets.

 

Finally, take a look at one of the indicators developed in-house by the Cannon Trading team, headed by our vice president, Ilan Levy-Mayer.

Red arrows are a sell, blue arrows are a buy . Red bars are “sell territory”, green bars are “buy territory” and black bars are neutral. The chart below will show you examples of some good trades as well as not so good.

  • Hot Market of the Week – March Soymeal
Hot market of the week is provided by QT Market Center, A Swiss army knife charting package that’s not just for Hedgers, Cooperatives and Farmers alike but also for Spread traders, Swing traders and shorter time frame application for intraday traders with a unique proprietary indicator that can be applied to your specific trading needs.
March Meal
March soymeal resumed its slide where the chart is approaching its third downside PriceCount objective in the $340 area. It would be normal to get a reaction after completing the objective in the form of a near term consolidation or corrective trade, at least. The low percentage fourth count to $231 is not shown here for relevancy but the weekly chart shows significant downside potential remains on a longer term basis.
PriceCounts – Not about where we’ve been , but where we might be going next!
The PriceCount study is a tool that can help to project the distance of a move in price. The counts are not intended to be an ‘exact’ science but rather offer a target area for the four objectives which are based off the first leg of a move with each subsequent count having a smaller percentage of being achieved. It is normal for the chart to react by correcting or consolidating at an objective and then either resuming its move or reversing trend. Best utilized in conjunction with other technical tools, PriceCounts offer one more way to analyze charts and help to manage your positions and risk. Learn more at www.qtchartoftheday.com
Trading in futures, options, securities, derivatives or OTC products entails significant risks which must be understood prior to trading and may not be appropriate for all investors. Past performance of actual trades or strategies is not necessarily indicative of future results.

The performance shown above is hypothetical in that the chart represents returns in a model account. The model account rises or falls by the average single contract profit and loss achieved by clients trading actual money pursuant to the listed system’s trading signals on the appropriate dates (client fills), or if no actual client profit or loss available – by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by the system’s trading signals on that day in real time (real‐time) less slippage, or if no real time profit or loss available – by the hypothetical single contract profit and loss of trades generated by running the system logic backwards on back adjusted data. Please read full disclaimer HERE.
