Futures Power Rankings – Metal and Energies Back in Focus


Trade Rec Update:

Although small, we had two winners out of two strategies last week (approx. $300-450, total). We suggested to offset both before close on Friday and this week’s rankings supports that due to the change in volatility.

If you are still holding ES or Sugar, we suggest to take the added profit. Sugar has been a nice consistent rally, but only giving us a teaser of profit. Although there is no reversal signal yet in Sugar, it looks as if it is getting top heavy.

For this week, we have three new trades: Natural Gas, Soybeans and a weekly ES option that could take us through the employment number. The ES will also allow us to participate through all of the earnings week. If we don’t hit the objectives earlier, traders should offset by noon Central on Friday.

Biggest Jump (+5): 

Silver and gold round out the top 2 spots, and had the biggest jump for the week, closing down every day but one last week. Since moving above 1180 on October 15th for the first time since early in the summer, gold has closed lower 11 out of 13 trading days.

Biggest Drop (-7):

The NASDAQ dropped 7 spots in the rankings, closing higher every day except Friday. but failing to gain significant momentum to the upside. The reversal of the NASDAQ has outshined both the S&P and the DOW, making a new high for 2015 on Friday.
