Trading 201: (Day) Trading Futures vs. ETFs, Stocks
By: John D Thorpe, Cannon Trading Senior Commodities Broker
According to the Wall Street Journal, assets in Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) have grown to roughly $2 trillion dollars since their inception. Exchange Traded Funds were created to compete with the $20 trillion dollar Mutual Fund Market as it was the only market in which you could achieve broad class diversity outside of individual stocks. ETFs were also designed to overcome the drawback that mutual funds could only settle on the close of daily business at their Net Asset Value (NAV). Previously, broad diversification across market sectors could only be purchased or sold at the close of the business day based on the equity, bond or raw material elements included in the weighted averages of every component of the sector mutual fund—thus, ETFs came into play.
The first Exchange Traded Fund, the Spider or SPDR, was the S&P 500 depository receipt which was designed to track the S&P 500 stock market Index and began trading in January of 1993. No longer could an investor achieve broad market exposure on just the close of the business day, but could now buy and sell the broad market at any time throughout the trading day. Market makers and specialists provided liquidity for ETFs and continue to do so today.
During the May 2010 so called “Flash Crash”, the NYSE cancelled all trades …..
Gold Snap Shot by Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker:
As can be the case in any asset, what starts as a moderate correction can turn into a dramatic washout. In the case of gold futures today, its ± $85 intra-day sell-off – easily slicing through $1900/ounce down to the mid-$1850 area – almost certainly involved margin and other money-oriented liquidations. As an added catalyst, look to the disappointing non-farm payroll numbers. Further soft U.S. economic data would point to lower inflationary concerns and tamp down on bullish sentiment for the precious metal.
The case for any price reversal will look for continued dollar weakness and the overall sentiment that demand improvement for commodities across the board will continue tracking its established 3-4-month uptrend as the markets look through current events.
