Schad Commodity’s Weekly Report: An Insider’s View of the Next Big Market Move

Once each week, usually on Friday evenings, we 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 bigger changing picture: UP Trending Futures Markets:  Sugar, Russell 2000 Index and High-Grade Copper, Natural Gas & 10yr. T-Notes (These three new this week.) DOWN Trending Futures Markets:  Eurodollars, Cocoa, Lean Hogs, Soymeal, Soybeans and Hard-Red Winter Wheat (KW), Live Cattle, British Pound, Corn & Soft-Red Winter Wheat (CBT) (These five new this week.) 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...

Wheat Futures Higher Amid Russia’s Export Surge, But Not For Long

Wheat futures have been taking a break from the sell-off of recent weeks partially because of the Russian surge of wheat exports – but that might all change soon. Wheat futures are up .04 cents today currently trading at $4.025 per bushel at the Chicago Board of Trade. The consensus is in with Russia’s bumper wheat crop setting a record high, but the discovery of a worse quality than expected and tough international competition may make getting rid of their grain a challenge for them. They’re not the only country to realize poorer quality wheat, but Australia is experiencing this too putting higher grade wheat in demand. “The quality of wheat is worse this year than a year ago,” said USDA-bureau official, sharing their fundamental assessment of the wheat futures market. The USDA added, “Although the same volumes of good quality wheat are likely, due to the bigger crop, it will be more difficult to compose batches of good wheat.” The technical trend for wheat is “down” with no bottom yet in sight. The wheat futures market is a “sell the rallies” opportunity until a bottom is in. ALL COMMENTARY IS CONSIDERED OPINION & VIEWS FROM THE AUTHOR AND NOT A SOLICITATION OF ANY SECURITIES.
