Why I like slow-paced grain markets Friday 2/09/2018 12:43:00 PM CST Tweet

All of us so called traders at some early point of our lives and careers have been fascinated by Wall street and all the fuss and adrenaline it's accompanied with. 

As a trader I started with trading the equity markets especially plain stocks; after that I got interested in options on stocks as there was much more leverage and it was rather more enticing earn several percents profit from a single day trade. Later on I got interested in indices futures and especially the S&P 500 and DAX; All of these markets or better to say instruments had big volumes and were quite volatile. At the time it was so fascinating to peep into the screen and watch how the numbers change glittering in green and red and price jumping up or plunging down. I was so proud of myself surviving in that fast and furious environment that I was blind for other markets and trading strategies.

After wiping out an account trading SPX and blowing up another one trading DAX which to be honest was totally unpredictable to day trade (or at least personally for me), it made me turn into grains futures. It was quite eye-opening finding out that ag markets are not that much influenced by algo and hft trading. Diving deep into these markets it showed a whole new world, rather old fashioned, slow-paced and predictable. Indeed, here the word is predictable.

The grain markets are quite predictable. I can trade using only price chart, a simple moving average and volume - no other sophisticated indicators are needed. Drawing support and resistance is simple and intuitive as well as the market offers good break ups and downs to trade or scalp.



LONDON, Nov 13, 2017 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX) -- CME Group [http://www.cmegroup.com/], the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, today announced the launch of Black Sea Wheat FOB (Platts) and Black Sea Corn FOB (Platts) financially settled futures contracts, to begin trading on December 18, 2017, pending all relevant regulatory review periods.
The financially settled contracts will each be offered with two settlement periods, providing greater customer flexibility, whereby 12 whole-month contracts and 24 half-month futures contracts are available to trade. The contracts will be denominated in U.S. dollars, 50 metric tonnes in size, and available to trade as blocks subject to a minimum of 5 contracts.
"The Black Sea region is a major player in the global wheat and corn trade, and is expected to export over 50 million tonnes of wheat and 25 million tonnes of corn this crop year alone," said Tim Andriesen, Managing Director, Agricultural Products, CME Group. "The launch of these two new futures contracts reflects customer demand for cleared products which track the Black Sea cash markets and allow customers to manage price exposure to the Black Sea wheat and corn markets."
The Black Sea Wheat contract is based on the Platts Russian Wheat 12.5% FOB Black Sea Deep Water daily price assessment and the Black Sea Corn contract is based on the Platts Ukrainian Corn FOB Black Sea daily price assessment.
"We are pleased that CME Group recognizes the crucial role our independent Black Sea wheat and corn price assessments have played over the past three years in creating price transparency, which in turn provides opportunities for the provision of risk management tools that bring greater efficiency to global grains markets," said Ian Dudden, Global Content Director, Agriculture at S&P Global Platts.
The two new futures contracts will be available for trading on CME Globex or for submission for clearing through CME ClearPort, and will be listed with and subject to the rules and regulation of CBOT.
The new Black Sea Wheat and Black Sea Corn futures contracts complement CME Group's existing suite of global wheat benchmarks, including Australian FOB wheat, Euro-denominated EU Wheat, Soft Red Winter Wheat, and Hard Red Winter Wheat and futures contracts.

ICE Canola Lower To Start Week Monday 3/27/2017 01:56:00 PM CST Tweet

ICE Canada canola contracts were lower Monday morning, as declines in the Chicago Board of Trade soy complex weighed on values.
Bearish technical signals contributed to the losses in canola, as last week's sharp declines did damage from a chart standpoint, according to analysts.
A general sense of uncertainty in the outside financial markets to start the week was also spilling into the commodities, including canola.
However, solid end user demand and expectations for tightening canola supplies going forward provided some underlying support. Oversold price sentiment helped limit the losses as well.
About 5,000 canola contracts had traded as of 8:53 CDT.
Milling wheat, durum, and barley futures were all untraded.
