Base Metals having a little rally


Bopperz

Recommended Posts

I have only made one commodity trade this month. LDN cocoa, and that didnt work out for me. Keeping an eye on base metals and coffee too.

I am also looking at Cotton, but it needs to bottom out and turn before I will enter the trade.

@Bopperz,

Are you a long only trader? Do you short commodities? Just look at Silver!

Silver is in freefall!

I don't trade precious metals as I class them as an FX asset class. Also, many of the opportunities/trades that I have seen in banks aren't available to the retail trader. So I stay out of it.

I have been looking at the Silver which, as you pointed out, is currently trending downwards.

One question - what methods do you use to identify a pull back? I would like to use one as an entry.

I trade ranges, so I normally use support/resistance levels to identify turning points, but this is so far down the chart, its not going to work!

Thanks in advance

James.

Also, to clarify my thinking....

NYK Cotton looks like its about to breakout to the downside. So there are two scenarios:

1) Fakeout, the most common. Prices will hit a new low, hit a bunch of sell orders, before a quick reversal back into range.

2) Sustained down move. 

If its option 2, I will wait for a pull back to the ~5670 (ish) and enter a short.

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
