  • Mike Seery’s Weekly Futures Recap – Crude Oil, Gold, Platinum, Silver, Wheat Futures and More

    Trading for the week of February 13th through February 17th ended with the market indexes closing higher going into the long holiday weekend. While all three major indexes are overbought stochastic and RSI remain neutral to bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are still possible for the near term.

    Time to get the a heads up from our trading partner Michael Seery. We’ve asked him to give our readers a recap of the this weeks futures markets and give us some insight on where he sees these markets headed. Mike has been a senior analyst for close to 15 years and has extensive knowledge of all of the commodity and option markets.

    Crude oil futures in the March contract settled last Friday in New York at 53.86 a barrel while currently trading at 53.08 down about $0.80 for the trading week still stuck in a 2 month consolidation with very little volatility which is extremely surprising in my opinion as I’m looking at a possible bullish position if prices break the 4 week high of 54.34 as the chart structure is starting to improve tremendously. Prices are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average is telling you that short term trend is higher as a breakout is looming in my opinion as the risk/reward will be in your favor in next week’s trade. OPEC continues to signal that they may cut production in 2017 and that is propping up prices, however the U.S dollar is still at 101 which continues to be a hindrance to commodity prices and crude oil & if there could be any weakness in the dollar I think you could really start to see the commodity markets accelerate to the upside. Crude prices and a false breakout in last weeks trade when prices traded at a 9 week low only to rally as the next breakout, in my opinion, will be the real one and I think it will be to the upside so keep a close eye on this market for a possible bullish position in next weeks trade.

    Gold futures in the April contract settled last Friday in New York at 1,235 an ounce while currently trading at 1,244 right near a 3 month high as I’m currently sitting on the sidelines as I’m involved in all the other precious metals as you don’t want to be too overloaded on one side as that can be dangerous if things fall apart. I am certainly not recommending any type of short position as I do think prices are headed higher & if you do have a futures position on I would place my stop under the 10 day low standing at 1,217 which is about $30 away or $3,000 risk per contract plus slippage & commission. Gold prices are trading above their 20, and 100-day moving average telling you that the short term trend is higher as the next major level of resistance was hit on February 8th at 1,246, and if that is broken, I think prices will head back up to the 1,300 level where prices were trading right when Trump was elected. Volatility in gold is relatively low despite the fact of all the worldwide turmoil as money flows continue to go into the S&P 500 which hit another all time high in yesterday’s trade, however, gold prices are not selling off, and that is a good sign in my opinion as there is demand for precious metals and equities at present.
    Trend: Higher
    Chart Structure: Improving

    Platinum futures in the April contract settled last Friday in New York at $1,011 an ounce while currently trading at $1,014 up about $3 for the week as I’ve been recommending a bullish position around the $1,008 level & if you took that trade the 10 day low has been raised to 990 as the chart structure will not improve for another 9 days, so you’re going to have to accept the monetary risk at this point. Platinum prices are still trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the short term trend is higher as I’ve also recommended bullish positions in silver & copper and I do think gold prices will continue to grind higher. However, I’m not recommending a position in that market. The next major level of resistance is the February 9th high around $1,032 & if that is broken I think prices could head towards $1,100 and expand volatility as that is what we really need at this time across the board as this is not typical of the commodity markets to go this long without some type of craziness happening. The U.S dollar is still around 101 as that is keeping volatility low and a lid on prices here in the short term, but I do believe that demand is coming back for these commodities and that the bullish trends are developing.
    Trend: Higher
    Chart Structure: Solid

    Silver futures in the March contract are currently trading at 18.03 an ounce after settling last Friday in New York at 17.93 up about $0.10 in an extremely low volatile trading manner which is shocking in my opinion as I’ve been recommending a bullish position around an average price of 17.00 and if you took that trade continue to place your stop loss under the 10 day low which now has been raised to 17.54 as the chart structure is excellent. Silver prices are trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average is telling you that the short term trend is higher with the next major level of resistance around the recent high of 18.20 as I will be rolling over into the May contract in today’s trade as expiration is coming upon us. At present am also recommending a bullish position in platinum & copper as I do think the precious metals look cheap, but we do need some volatility to enter this market as this trade is putting me to sleep despite the fact that prices continue to move higher. The main problem with the commodities at current time is the fact that the U.S dollar is at 101 and is relentless and will not selloff, but eventually, if we do get some weakness prices could accelerate to the upside and that is what I’m waiting for so remain bullish & place the proper stop loss. Trend: Higher
    Chart Structure: Excellent

    Wheat futures in the March contract settled last Friday in Chicago at 4.52 bushel while currently trading at 4.47 down about 5 cents experiencing a wild trading session in Thursday’s trade selling off around 20 cents from the session high as this market is all based on weather conditions in the Great Plains section of the United States at present. I have been recommending a bullish position from the 4.40 level and if you took that trade, the stop loss has been raised to 4.27 as the chart structure is now outstanding therefore lowering monetary risk as we will be rolling over into the May contract as expiration is upon us. Wheat prices are still trading above their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the short term trend is higher as record temperatures are reaching the Midwestern part of the United States on this long holiday weekend as we are closed on Monday as we will reopen on Tuesday morning due to the Presidents’ Day holiday. The main concern about the wheat is the fact that it is still February and 65° is way too warm as we could still have a cold snap that could adversely affect the quality of the wheat and that’s why you’re seeing prices somewhat propped up here in recent days so continue to place proper stop loss while always maintaining the risk of 2% of your account balance on any given trade.
    Trend: Higher
    Chart Structure: Excellent
