As has been the case in prior years, this week we’re seeing reduced daily trade volume across the futures markets.  Adding to this environment, Last Trading Day for Jan. ’24 Natural gas is tomorrow the 27th, and both First Notice Day for January ‘24 CBOT soy complex futures and Last Trading Day for January ‘24 RBOB gasoline and ULSD Heating oil is this Friday the 29th.

Both natural gas and crude oil numbers are out tomorrow due to the short trading week.

 

Just what is a Troy ounce, anyway?  For those trading precious metals futures like gold, silver, platinum and palladium, it’s the unit of weight by which those physical products are measured.

 

Turns out, a small town about 110 miles southeast of Paris and situated within the Champagne wine region was major intersection for parts of the Roman-era trade highways and then an important international trading hub during the Middle Ages (± 500 AD to 1500).  The town’s name: Troyes (pronounced: troy).  Right around the 12th and 13th centuries – call it the middle of the Middle Ages – an annual cycle of 2- to 3-week trade fairs flourished in the region and it was likely then that the unit of weight was standardized and first used.  It essentially beat out other systems of weight developed in other parts of Europe and eventually it was made the official weight for gold and silver by England in 1824, called the British Imperial system.  Four years later, the United States adopted it as an official weight standard for United States coinage.  And today, your precious metals are still measured using this system.

March Silver stabilized its break last month and activated upside PriceCount objectives on the correction higher. Now, the chart is taking aim at its first upside target in the 26.41 area.
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.

Updates and Bullet Points:

By Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker

 

General: 

 

While the Federal Reserve and its main voice Jerome Powell have been steadfast in declaring that interest rates would not be coming down unless the FOMC saw broad definitive proof that inflation was falling, traders have been pricing in that eventuality since the end of October. In just the last three weeks, the E-mini S&P 500 climbed out of correction territory and the yield on the 10-year T-note slid from the 5.00% it touched prior to the last Fed meeting down to 4.30% overnight. Never mind the CME Fed watch tool pegs the potential for a 25-basis points rate cut at the Fed’s December 13th meeting at a slim 1.1% and at 3.1% at their January 31st meeting. What likely has traders’ attention: the Fed Funds futures contract sees the probability of a 25-basis point cut at the March 20th Fed meeting at 40.6%. Don’t count on to begin to telegraph any sort of pivot until the Fed deems any signs of slowing growth as entrenched and that should take some time. The Fed will turn a cold shoulder to making quick moves as they do not want to reignite the inflation fire before it is extinguished.

 

Currency:

 

As the conversation shifts from rate hikes to cuts, the U.S. dollar is on track to hit its lowest level in months.

 

Metals:

 

In the scenario that the dollar and treasury yields continue to fall, look for precious metals like gold and silver to continue their ascent. Gold has already climbed over $200 per ounce in less than two months, from its October 5th close at $1850.80 / ounce to its second day closing above $2050 / ounce yesterday and today (basis February) – a ±$20,000 per contract move for the standard 100-oz. futures contract.
