Orange Juice futures - Hurricane Michael

Recommended Posts

Oldie but Goldie, hurricane / storm Michael now looks set to hit Florida with strength. Futures have been on a downtrend of late.




Reference for those out the loop:

@Ludwik Chodzko-Zajko IG, the US news channels referred Hurricane Michael as 'Monstrous'. I will be keeping an eye on the price action for Orange Juice in case there is a short term trading opportunity here. At the moment there is no reason to enter the trade as there is a clear downward trend bias. Now should this change then a possible long position could be initiated.

Right now Orange Juice is trading below its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages. I need this to change to at the very least begin trading above its 20 day moving average.

If one looks at today's price action for Orange Juice then it went up 58.1 points and 0.41%. I remember trading Orange Juice prior to the Hurricane Irma as the trend had already started well before the Irma hit Florida.

This is different so far!

Again at the time of writing Orange Juice is down 35.3 points and down by 0.25%.

Bearing in mind this was one of the worst hurricanes to hit Florida then the price action is quite interesting. The clue was the lack of any trend reversal or build up from the news weeks ago on this hurricane. It kind of indicated that the price would not behave the same as prior to Hurricane Irma hitting Florida. 

What are your thoughts on this @Ludwik Chodzko-Zajko IG?

Missed all the citrus producing areas (just), from my very basic research looks like they're all concentrated in the "pan" rather than the "handle". 

Hurricane season still has 6 weeks to go so one to watch (same applies to sugar, RBOB and WTI - refineries in Louisiana / Texas).

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.

      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
