  • Managed Futures Sector Report: "Caution Flag for Financials" 0 comments
    Jan 20, 2011 11:21 AM
    After several months of good returns in the managed futures and commodities arena, several futures market sectors are seeing "red" in early 2011.  Many markets are seeing choppy market action and consolidation in January.  

    In particular, gold - which has been entrenched in a long-term bull market - has seen stiff resistance in the 1420 area and has seen a recent reversal.  Today, the gold market took out recent lows and is sitting in the 1340 range.  

    The Commodities sector has held up relatively well during this volatile period. Various markets such as softs and cattle have yielded profits, which have offset losses in hogs and grains. The energy market has given up gains earned earlier in the month. Overall, however, the commodities sector remains slightly higher for the month. The performance of this sector can be tracked here, in our tradable Commodities Program.

    For more information on the commodities sector, risk management, and trading systems, please visit my blog.

    AN INVESTMENT IN FUTURES MAY RESULT IN LOSSES.

    PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.
