May 2011 Silver traded up to $49.82 overnight --- just below 1980's all-time high of $50.36 traded by January 1980, in delivery and thus reflecting cash prices.  Below are links to 1980 charts for January, March, May, and July Silver.  (The latter three were constrained by daily trading limits, which are no longer in effect.)  Expect the exchange to raise margin requirements SOON as $11,745 is a bit low for a $238,600 contract at 47.72.(only 4.9% - lots of leverage!)

The March 2004 issue of "Stocks, Futures & Options" magazine (http://www.sfomag.com) will include an article from Moore Research Center, Inc., discussing the seasonal tendencies of gasoline and natural gas during March-May.

Few industries are more basic than energy, and few changes are more dependable than those that follow from one season to the next. So, if change creates opportunity, has the vernal equinox generated opportunities in the energy sector? If so, of what consequence and with what degree of reliability?

Ever since Henry Ford began mass producing autos, gasoline has undergone change. In the late twentieth century it went from leaded to unleaded. The New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) began a contract for Unleaded Gasoline (first UR, then HU) in late 1984.

Environmental concerns over the additive methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) in unleaded drove the latest evolution. Beginning October 2005, NYMEX began trading a futures contract for delivery of Reformulated Blendstock for Oxygenate Blending (RBOB) alongside that for HU as unleaded was being phased out.

Newsflash

Do you trade Cocoa, Coffee, Cotton, OJ or Sugar? If so, MRCI has a brand new 2014 SOFTS Report just for you!

You hear about prices for crude oil and for gold.  But what about some of the more exotic commodities, the so-called softs? Did you know that world sugar prices three years ago reached 30-year highs at 36 cents/pound --- but are now trading below 18 cents?  Will that present an opportunity?  If so, what kind --- and when?  What about other agriculture commodities --- cocoa, coffee, orange juice, and cotton?  Did you know cocoa prices as recently as 2011 reached a more than three-decade high at over 3800 dollars/metric ton, then traded down to 2000, and are now again testing 3000?  Is THAT an opportunity?  And what about King Cotton?  Did you know that in 2011 cotton prices exceeded $2.20/pound --- about twice as high as it had ever traded in at least the last 40 years, then plunged to $0.70, and now --- before the new crop is fully planted --- is poised to test $1.00?  Increased volatility in all these markets means increased opportunity ---but only for those familiar with these markets. Historically, when is the best time to buy? To hold? To sell?  Perhaps 83 seasonal and spread strategies can help with year-round trading ideas!!!
