The Week Ahead

By Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker

 

Grains / Soy complex: For Soybeans and corn interests, many eyes are on South America, where because their crop year runs counter to here in the U.S., large producers like Argentina and Brazil are approaching harvest. Brazil is set for a bumper soybean crop. Argentina is experiencing drought conditions which are more adversely affecting their corn crop than their soybeans. Traders believe the soybean crop can recover more significantly from the heat and drought as compared with the corn crop.

Gold & Silver: precious metals analysts often look to ETF holdings for guidance on gold and silver futures prices, eyeing inflows and outflows for developing patterns. To wit, both gold and silver ETF holdings are sitting above their levels at the start of the year

Energy: Crude oil traded to a 4-day low this A.M. The likely catalyst could be Chinese energy demand, which seems to be linked to COVID infection rates in that country, whish show little signs of peaking yet.  Support at $80.00 per barrel (March contract) looks vulnerable unless we see some confirmation of improving conditions inside China.

Plan your trade and trade your Plan

Weekly Newsletter – Hogs Spread Idea, Holiday Schedule + Levels for 12.19.2022

Here’s a futures spread idea from our friends at Moore Research ( FREE TRIAL ESPECIALLY for Cannon’s clients and blog readers!). This is a calendar spread in lean hogs. Moore Research specializes in seasonal research designed to anticipate future price movement rather than constantly react to an endless stream of news. Like the annual cycle of weather from warm to cold and back to warm, annual cycles in supply and demand can produce seasonal price movement. This calendar spread in lean hogs is an idea in that concept. Retail pork consumption peaks around July/August, at the tail end of the low point in slaughter. With cold storage inventories reduced by end of August and slaughter still low, the market bids October futures higher over April, when stocks near their peak. Contact your Cannon Broker for additional assistance.
Performance Snapshot
Below is a performance snapshot of the seasonal trend for each of the last 15 years. You can find average gain/loss, best/worst equity (based on one futures spread contract), and more.
A Cannon broker will be able to assist, provide feedback and answer any questions about spreads, seasonal tendencies, options and MUCH MORE!
Futures trading involves a substantial risk of loss and may not be suitable for all investors. Trading advice is based on information taken from trade and statistical services and other sources Cannon Trading believes are reliable. We do not guarantee that such information is accurate or complete, and it should not be relied upon as such. Trading advice reflects our good faith judgment at a specific time and is subject to change without notice. There is no guarantee that the advice we give will result in profitable trades. All trading decisions will be made by the account holder. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
SEASONAL TENDENCIES ARE A COMPOSITE OF SOME OF THE MORE CONSISTENT COMMODITY FUTURES SEASONALS THAT HAVE OCCURRED OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS. THERE ARE USUALLY UNDERLYING FUNDAMENTAL CIRCUMSTANCES THAT OCCUR ANNUALLY THAT TEND TO CAUSE THE FUTURES MARKETS TO REACT IN A SIMILAR DIRECTIONAL MANNER DURING A CERTAIN CALENDAR PERIOD OF THE YEAR. EVEN IF A SEASONAL TENDENCY OCCURS IN THE FUTURE, IT MAY NOT RESULT IN A PROFITABLE TRANSACTION AS FEES, AND THE TIMING OF THE ENTRY AND LIQUIDATION MAY IMPACT ON THE RESULTS. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT HAS IN THE PAST OR WILL IN THE FUTURE ACHIEVE PROFITS UTILIZING THESE STRATEGIES. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT PRICE PATTERNS WILL RECUR IN THE FUTURE. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. RESULTS NOT ADJUSTED FOR COMMISSION AND SLIPPAGE.

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

PPI final this week!

Gold may again be on the March.

By John Thorpe, Senior Broker

Recently we have had a bit of a breakout in the spot gold contract prices traded through our platforms and the CME/Nymex. The contract is a 100 troy oz deliverable contract GCZ22. There are also , smaller sized contracts, Micro’s MGCZ22 10 troy ounces and Mini’s QOZ22 50 troy ounces Financially settled.  These contracts offer not only a great day trading tool but also a wonderful way to control an interest in a tangible asset class. Much has been, currently is and will continue to be written about Gold as a hedge during times of uncertainty. How prices will move as an effect of whatever the cause will always be open for debate.

From Executive order 6102 signed in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt forbid the hoarding of gold coin, bullion and certificates to the initiation of the gold standard from the 1944 Bretton Woods agreement, to Nixon’s “temporary” suspension of the dollar’s convertibility into gold in 1972, Global Governmental policy has often interceded in the convertibility of the U.S. Dollar and the value of gold in the past 100 + years. Wherever the price of gold has been or where it is currently headed, there is no doubt that it remains a valuable asset class of it’s own so it does bear to watch the price closely as it appears to be breaking from a long slumber.  In the short run I see Dec 22 and Feb 23 gold prices needing to test lower levels around 1738 1744 respectively, before this market, if a breakout is in the cards, will develop into a true upside breakout and in fact, will test multi year highs. Personally, I believe the fundamentals aren’t quite right for a big move from here, but the technical indicators certainly are screaming “look at me”, for now I will watch and wait.
