Mon, 08/31/2020 - 00:00
The end of the summer is the start of the harvest season in the grain markets. The United States is the world’s leading producer and exporter of corn and soybeans, and a leading producer of wheat. The grains and oilseed are the agricultural products that feed the world. The last time the grain markets experienced a significant weather event that caused supply shortages was back in 2012. That year, drought conditions sent corn and bean futures prices to all-time highs and wheat to its highest price since 2008, when dry conditions pushed the primary ingredient in bread to its record peak.... more

A Precious July for Gold And Silver

Thu, 08/06/2020 - 00:00
July 2020 was a month where the prices of gold and silver posted significant gains. In what has been almost a perfect bullish storm for the two precious metals, a decline in the value of the US dollar against other world currencies and the unprecedented level of central bank and government stimulus pushed the prices significantly higher. In mid-March, during the height of the risk-off period in markets across all asset classes, silver traded below $12 per ounce, and gold retreated to the $1450 level. Four months later, the prices were substantially higher. As we head into August, the bull... more

However, using Excel you can go one better and determine both where is the current value relative to the history and how many times the current value has occurred in the past using frequency distribution analysis, the topic of... more

Volume Candlesticks

Tue, 07/28/2020 - 00:00
CQG Has Added A Volume Dimension To Candlestick Charts Ever since Charles Dow started theorising on markets, volume has been seen to be an important confirming factor to the prevailing price action, providing additional colour to the two dimensional study of price and time. Candlestick charting also values the addition of volume when discerning levels of supply and demand. The problem for the market practitioner using candlesticks has always been in integrating volume effectively into their analysis. Candlestick charts are plotted independent of volume so the closest most have been able to... more
