Option Queen Letter

Here in the northeast, the weather has been fantastic. We have been enjoying our Indian summer and, as the major indices continue to rally in the fourth-quarter, so too have the markets. We did; however, see a minor retreat on the very positive “Jobs Report” in the Friday session. The reports highlights the expansion of […]

Sugar (Azucar) Futures chart for September 3, 2013

Azucar – A Changing of the Guards

Clearly the trend has been lower in sugar for the last two years with futures currently trading nearly half the value they were trading at 25 months ago. It does appear that we are consolidating just above the 16 cent level and we may have found an interim bottom. Within the last few weeks futures […]

Natural gas – A Bullish Move Underway

Since putting in a low on 8/8 at $3.15 October natural gas futures have advanced 11% lifting this contract to the down sloping trend line(blue line) that has served as resistance since mid-May.

Crude oil futures, August 2, 2013

Bullish engulfing candle in 10-yr notes

Energy: Today’s chart of the day was on Crude oil…give it a read. If we see follow through into next week it will confirm for the second time that $108 is stiff resistance. I am operating under the influence that is how we play out and this could drag futures under $100/barrel. As of this […]

Silver, $26 is the Line in the Sand

The $26 level has acted as silver’s support for over two years now. And after a 10% slide over the past three weeks, including today’s 6% drop, we’re once again challenging this all-important line in the sand. Will $26 hold this time? Maybe not… yet I remain a long-term silver bull and see lower prices […]

Crude oil finds an Interim Top?

Crude oil has gained $8/barrel in the last month, putting it just a few dollars shy of $100. My stance: the easy money has already been made in bullish trade. Prices moved quickly from oversold to overbought territory as Stochastics shows in the chart below. I think we’re in the process of establishing an interim […]

Buy new crop wheat

Energy: After five positive sessions Crude oil finished in the red today but it was not a one way trade as the trading range was nearly $2. I started advising clients today to work into bearish trade thinking we see prices $3-5 lower in the coming weeks. The heating oil/RBOB spread mentioned in previous weeks […]
