“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” — Thomas A. Edison–

Saturday December 14, 2013
11:00 PM South Florida Beach Time
We are now in holiday markets. Traders should stay nimble and tune in for Day Trades, BW flashes and Updates for all markets.
 FuturesCom is rolling analysis to February for Energy products and will begin to include Brent Crude in this issue.  Analysis for Soybeans will roll to March.  Ball-on-a-silver-pedestal

Stocks closed mixed but only a tad higher on Friday. All major U.S stock averages are up on the year and year over year. The Dow is currently down for the month of December. December historically ranks as the second best month of the year with an average gain of 1.50%.  With eleven trading days left in the year the averages need a good bounce to keep history its side which generally has shown the Dow Jones Industrial Average to settle at or near last Monday’s close on January 3. Considering that both the Dow Jones Industrial average and SP500 tend firm into December and generally into the end of the year and Long term ‘yearly’ technical patterns for U.S. stock index averages remain friendly and are ‘just turning up’ traders should consider Buying March Dow Mini Futures on the open Monday for a trade.

The Euro is still in the same trading range is slightly higher on the year, remains a trading affair and is now pushing the outer edges of resistance after the ECB disappointed Euro bears at its last meeting. Swiss Francs futures hit resistance and backed off. The SNB reiterated its policy to defend the cross between Euro and Swiss Franc and also said the high level of Swiss is likely to continue.  Swiss Futures are slightly higher on the year and up on the month. Dollar-Yen tested the highs of the year last week. Traders should look for a continued upward bias in Dollar –Yen. Forex traders should remain long Dollar-Yen and buy dips. While some profit taking is overdue the long term Dollar-Yen remains friendly. Long term Cable charts have turned friendly. The Aussie continues to act weak against the Dollar, a bounce is overdue however the Aussie remains well off its highs of the year and traders should look for a more range bound trade and consider the Aussie a trading affair. The long term work remains bearish.  Analysis for overseas equity and foreign exchange markets are available upon request.  For more information please call or email a request.

Lasting lows in WTI Crude usually occur after the year–end passes into February. Look for a stable perhaps firm Crude after the end of next week into Mid-January. Natural Gas has left the area to the upside. Lumber closed sharply higher on Friday, up nearly the limit.  Copper closed a bit higher, acts better than it has and typically firms into the early part of the New Year. Consider buying a dip and getting long. Gold and Silver remain a trading affair and are consumed buy Fed news and lack thereof while the Bond markets are in the same boat.  Silver has a tendency to bounce after this week into the second week of January but is lower on the year and year over year, same with Gold. Generally bear markets tend to end the month on weakness and the opposite is true for bull markets.

Soybeans, wheat and corn all lost ground over the last week.  Sugar continued its decline unabated. Cocoa remains firm and Coffee appears to be trying to break out of its recent trading range to the upside, is up on the month and typically acts better into the end of the year. Cotton also appear to be trying to break out of its recent trading range is up on the month, typically acts better into the end of the year and is also up on the year. Buy dips for trading and get long. Seasonally Feb Cattle tends to lose a bit its steam into the first two weeks of December and has done that, the backend of April and June tend to rally into the first part of January and are holding steady.. Traders should consider buying April or June Cattle for a trade. Cash Hogs remain weak, the back end contracts remain firm, Traders can sell Feb and April Hogs for a trade and also look to buy a dip in June and establish long June and July against short Feb and April Hogs.

Onto the nitty-gritty, stay tuned for further analysis across all markets

Ball-on-a-silver-pedestalTraders should stay nimble and tune in for Day Trades, BW flashes and Updates for all markets.  Our Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S is behind us and some scheduled ‘down’ time in the office is now over. Traders should be receiving more day trades and a pick-up in activity. Stocks closed mixed on Friday. All major U.S stock averages are up on the year, year over year and closed higher on the month. The Dow Jones Industrials trend remains on a sideways to higher path.  Both the Dow Jones Industrial average and SP500 tend remain firm into December and generally into the end of the year.  Traders should consider buying ETF’s or Futures on dips.  Long term ‘yearly’ technical patterns for U.S. stock index averages remain friendly. The week ahead is filled with economic data and a plethora of comments (An economic calendar is being sent with today’s letter). The Euro is still in the same trading range is slightly higher on the year and remains a trading affair. FuturesCom is rolling analysis to March for currencies and to February for WTI Crude Oil in this issue. Equity Index analysis will roll to March at the end of the week. Traders should look for a continued upward bias in Dollar –Yen. Forex traders should remain long Dollar-Yen and buy dips. Cable acts better, long term charts have turned friendly. The December British Pound made new contract highs last week with marginally higher prices likely ahead of the market rather than behind, buy a dip.  The Aussie continues to act weak against the Dollar, however the Aussie does tend to firm against the dollar into a bit into December.  Buying Aussie Dollars against Canadian Dollars and the US Dollar tends to work during December and into the first week in January. However the Aussie remains well off its highs of the year and traders should look for a more range bound trade and consider the Aussie a trading affair. The U.S Dollar can typically hold up well against the Canadian dollar into early December. Positive data from north of the border on Friday initially helped the Canuck but the rally was brief and it closed lower on the day, December Canadian Dollar futures are 30 points or so away from contract lows. The long term work remains friendly for USD/CAD.  With a heavy data week ahead traders should look for trading ranges.

Analysis for overseas equity and foreign exchange markets is available upon request. For more information please call or email a request.

January WTI Crude made new recent lows on Thursday and bounced a bit as the spread between Brent Crude Oil and WTI narrowed.  Typically WTI Crude makes sustainable lows for a trade in the middle to late December. Lasting lows in WTI usually occur after the year–end passes into February.  Gold bounced a bit on Friday, did not close the month on its lows and was higher on the day. Look for a range bound trade. Chinese demand for the metal is increasing and should stem some selling as demand increases in front of the Chinese New Year, which comes in January. If one tosses in some reticent buying in case geo-political tensions rise in Asia then gold should test 1274 to 1289.  Copper closed a bit higher and silver also acted better on Friday. We will see if the metals can sustain the strength.  Soybeans closed firm Friday on good exports, wheat rallied a bit and corn declined.

The lifting of some Iranian sanctions should boost some demand for foodstuffs and is generally supportive for Wheat and Sugar. Traders can buy this break in sugar and look for a pickup in prices over the next few weeks. Coffee closed up on the month and typically acts better into the end of the year, buy dips for trading. Buy a dip in Cocoa for a higher trade into the end of the year. Cash Cattle firmed up and pulled up the futures contracts. Seasonally Feb Cattle tends to lose a bit its steam into the first two weeks of December.  Hogs were mixed on Friday, cash remains weak the back end contracts remain firm, Traders can sell Feb and April Hogs for a trade and also look to buy a dip in June and establish long June and July against short Feb and April Hogs.
