Welcome Benvenuti 歡迎 Velkommen ترحيب Welkom Bienvenue ברוכים הבאים 歓迎 добро пожаловать
Greetings, this is Brian Schad. I have been active with the commodity futures markets consistently for 29 years. I have offered my trading strategies to the public since the summer of 1996. Maybe I can be of assistance to you. However, before you even consider the advice or counsel of Schad Commodity, you must know all commodity futures and options trading involves substantial risk of loss. It is not suitable for everyone. You must only trade with “risk capital” and do so responsibly. If you require further assistance, please contact me personally. All the best for future success. ~ Brian Schad, President · Schad Commodity Futures & Options Trading Corporation
The Schad Commodity Futures & Options Trading Corporation website is Brian Schad’s official and original Internet presence for commodity futures trading. Here you will learn all about one of the futures trading industry’s longest running newsletters (currently inactive) by Brian Schad, and the advanced futures trading home-study workshop still available for you to become completely acquainted with the Schad Commodity-style trading techniques. You are visiting one of the very first commodity trading websites among his peers in the futures & options trading world that remains on-line to this day.
Brian is primarily an option writer, but as you will see is still involved with directional trading. The option writing trades are “not” a part of this website (the disclaimers alone would take up too much space), only the directional futures & index trades continue to be featured as it has been for decades. Follow Schad Commodity’s current agricultural and financial futures & options (plus index) trading position’s results right here daily, and also find Schad Commodity as the 3rd Place finisher of 25 international participants in the world renown 2014 Altegris International Commodity Trading Championship (click here). The Schad Commodity blog is also recognized, and has been selected by “Feedspot,” as one of the Top 20 Futures Trading Blogs on the web. No other commodity futures trading website and social media will keep you better informed about the markets we consume and use in our everyday lives. Let Schad Commodity keep you up to date.
More information about Schad Commodity’s consultation, and one-on-one teaching will be found by exploring this website. Thank you for your consideration to diversify your investment portfolio with agricultural commodity futures and teaming-up with Schad Commodity as your trading partner.
Commodity Futures Trading Commentary by Brian Schad
Schad Commodity Monthly Report: An Insider’s View of the Next Big Market Move · May, 2023
Once each month, usually on the first Friday evening, we’ll update our personal weekly commodity trading charts and review them for changes in “net long” or, “net short” holdings between the big commercial commodity traders, large speculators, and the usually uninformed public. This is our professional analysis of “the bigger picture” and current dynamics for each market which provide a spyglass view of the BIG commercial traders and what they are currently doing to influence the futures markets.
As you may already know, insider trading with stocks on Wall Street is very illegal. However, in the commodity trading industry, large/commercial traders MUST report their positions EACH WEEK to the CFTC regulatory body, hence, we monitor them on a weekly basis. Although the futures markets themselves will ultimately provide the most accurate illustration of trend, these (weekly) charts we’ve identified, serve to forewarn us of the next possible bigger move.
Here are the commodity markets which illustrate their forthcoming changing picture:
UP Trending Futures Markets: Bitcoin, Cocoa, E-mini NASDAQ 100 Index, Sugar #11, Silver, British Pound, and Euro-currency
DOWN Trending Futures Markets: Lean Hogs, Copper, Hard-Red Winter Wheat, Japanese Yen, Corn, Soy Oil, Soybeans, and Soft-Red Winter Wheat
*expect extension of current trend
ALL COMMENTARY IS CONSIDERED OPINION & VIEWS FROM THE AUTHOR AND NOT A SOLICITATION OF ANY SECURITIES. THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING COMMODITY INTERESTS CAN BE SUBSTANTIAL. YOU SHOULD THEREFORE CONSIDER WHETHER SUCH TRADING IS SUITABLE FOR YOU IN LIGHT OF YOUR FINANCIAL CONDITION.

PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. TRADING FUTURES AND OPTIONS INVOLVE SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS AND ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE.
