   Trading

We will assist you in developing a trading strategy for any market. This could be anything from the Australian Dollar to Japanese Yen, or possibly Sugar, to Bonds, to the S&P 500. The trading strategy may include commodity futures, options on the commodity or a synthetic futures strategy. We will provide charts to assist in commodity analysis. We are experienced in the use of computerized Technical and Fundamental Analysis and use them to determine wave retracements, as well as wave expansions.  We will take the time to explain what it means to the trader and assist you in understanding commodity and option pricing. Whether you use seasonal formations or sideways channel breakouts, we thoroughly understand these investment strategies and can help you develop your trading approach.

 

Commodity Futures Trading's brokers and analysts have extensive trading and brokerage experience. For speculators, this experience means that our team of  brokers is able to assist them with the technical and fundamental expertise they need and help them with taking positions in futures based on their personal forecasts and expectations for profit. This combination of technical analysis and fundamental insight help give you a thorough overview of the  markets you are trading.

 

For hedgers, we have acquired a group of brokers with "real world" experience to help devise a market strategy that works and protects from adverse price movement from a cash transaction planned for some time down the road. Hedging is the most widely acknowledged and strategically effective use of commodities futures trading. With proper use of hedging, an individual or organization can take a position (that is, buy or sell) to transfer and minimize the risk, protect against losses in actual position, and increase profits. Of course the risk of loss still exists.

 

We also offer customized consulting for commodities traders, potential commodities traders and independent commodities traders. We recommend blending a composite of professional trading systems for purposes of portfolio diversification and smoother performance characteristics in the commodity futures markets. Our goal is to offer the finest trading options available.
