Option Play: RBOB Unleaded Gas Busts Through Resistance

RBOB Unleaded Gasoline has forged it's way higher on a weekly report that showed supplies are dwindling slightly.

 

 

Fundamentally, as we head into the peak driving season RBOB Unleaded Gasoline has rallied on the latest supply data that showed weekly inventories dropped by 4.56 million barrels. This according to Energy Information Agency (EIA) which reports on supplies of Crude Oil, RBOB Unleaded Gasoline, and Distillate Products which include Heating Oil and Diesel.  This weekly report typically hits the wire service on Wednesday mornings. On the demand side, Hightower is reporting that consumption over the last four weeks is up 7.01% currently as compared to a year ago. I'm of the belief that we could see a 15-20 cent rally in prices from here and that demand would still remain strong.

Technically, on the daily chart below I have placed my favorite technical indicators.  I call this combination of indicators the "10/20/50/BB/ Trend Finder" strategy. They are the 10 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, red line), the 20 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, green line), and the 50 day Simple Moving Average (SMA, royal blue line). I have also added the Bollinger Bands (BB's, light blue shaded area) and Candlesticks (red and green bars with the wicks).

On the daily chart above my favorite indicators show me that we are in a principal trend up which is the strongest form of an upward trend that my favorite indicators can show me. This occurs when the 10 day SMA crosses up and over the 20 day SMA as both indicators are pointing up on the chart and the market trades above the 10 day SMA.  

I figured this out by placing my favorite indicators on the charts and studying them which I found at: http://www.markethead.com/2.0/free_trial.asp?ap=mmckinne , which is a web application that we have developed for our clients called MARKETHEAD where I get about 80% of all my research from most of the time. That means I get both technical and fundamental research from this web app and I am a veteran series 3 Broker of 15 years. So if I'm using it then maybe my readers should check it out. Yes? 

 

 

Option Play:  

A potential play here could be a 3 to 1 ratio strategy with call spreads vs. a put.

For exact details on this strategy and  others including risk, months, expiration dates, strike prices, and number of positions feel free to contact me at 312-277-0115 or mmckinney@zaner.com. In addition, I am by no means "married" to a market. I like to make trade recommendations to my clients in the direction of the existing trend whether the market be the precious metals, currencies, financials, softs, or grains.

Option Play: Crude Prepared For Short Term Rally

 

The Crude Oil market could be poised for the next leg up despite lingering supplies.

 

Fundamentally, there are few different developments that could help balance supply and demand in the Crude Oil market. Many companies will spend less on new drilling and exploration as they announced some new budget cuts this past week. Also, over the last several weeks there has been a plethora of oil companies filing bankruptcy and going out of business due to low prices. Another bullish factor is that the most recent unemployment data showed an unexpected uptick in job growth and that could help with consumption as commuters drive to work. Finally, there is a scheduled meeting between OPEC and non OPEC nations on March 20th in Moscow to collaborate on freezing production. However, despite all of these bullish factors we are still sitting on massive supplies, some of the highest in 80 years.

AG HEDGE- Corn and Beans Hold, For Now

AG HEDGE- Corn and Beans Hold, For Now

 

More sellers are coming out of the woodwork in the Corn and Beans.

 

Fundamentally, with the over supply of grains here in the U.S. and not many international buyers coming in right now the Corn and Soybeans are retesting critical support areas. In my book, each day that goes by with Corn above $3.50/bushel and Soybeans above $4.50/bushel is a small victory for prices. While many believe that the Corn and Beans are getting ready for another leg down, I'm from the camp that the big sellers are exhausted in these markets.

 

Technically, my support areas in both the Corn and Beans have held to my satisfaction. My major support area in the Corn market is $3.50/bushel and in the Beans $8.50/bushel and over the last several days we have tested these areas many times and held. I have added my favorite technical indicators to the charts below. I have coined them the "10/20/50/BB Trend Finder". They are the 10 (red line), 20 (green line), and the 50 (blue line) day Simple Moving Averages or SMA's. I have also added Bollinger Bands or BB's (light blue shaded area) and Candlesticks (the red and green bars with the candle stick wicks, and on this daily chart each bar represents one day of trading). These few technical indicators can tell me many, many different characteristics about the market at a quick glance so I have them saved on my charts in MARKETHEAD, so they can populate on any chart I choose at the click of a mouse.

In addition to were support is, these indicators on the daily charts tell me that Soybeans and Corn are in a sideways trading range and the markets seem to be building a base. This is fairly easy to determine as all of the indicators in my "10/20/50/BB Trend-Finder" are pointing sideways. The big question then is, are these markets building a base to move higher or lower?

I figured all this out by putting my "10/20/50/BB Trend Finder" on the daily and charts above and applying these indicators to the charts at the click of a mouse which I found at: http://www.markethead.com/2.0/free_trial.asp?ap=mmckinne , which is a web application that we have developed for our clients called MARKETHEAD where I get about 70-80% of all my research from. That means I get both technical and fundamental research from this web app and I am a veteran series 3 Broker of 17 years. So if I'm using it then maybe my readers should check it out. Yes?
