open a futures account

Opening a commodity trading account to trade futures, or options on futures, is a relatively painless process.  Most commodity brokerage firms offer electronic account applications which enable futures traders to complete the account opening process electronically from their computer or tablet, without printing, scanning, or faxing documents.  However, for those who are uncomfortable with electronic applications most commodity brokers will accept and process paper applications for a futures trading account. 

We hope you choose DeCarley Trading as your futures and options broker, but whomever you choose be sure to do your homework.  Not all commodity brokerage services are the same!

  • Small specs are getting squeezed out of ES futures contracts

    the financial futures report

    It is early, but October has been the least volatile month...EVER.

    If today was the end of the month, this would be the quietest October on record and it would also be the quietest month ever. Of course, it is too early to suggest that is what is in store for the markets come October 31st, but it should at least offer some perspective.

    Further, it has been almost a year without a 3% drawdown in the S&P 500. This is the second longest run of its kind in history. If the market survives the next 10 days, it will beat the previous record. Keep in mind, 3% is literally a drop in the bucket. At today's price, that would be a mere 75 ES points.

    We don't when the dam will break, but we do know it always does, eventually. Traders should be on their toes. Afterall, investor complacency is at an all-time high and historically such environments haven't ended well.

    As mentioned in a previous newsletter, the University of Michigan stock market sentiment index measuring the percentage of investors that believe the stock market will be higher a year from now is at an all-time high. Similarly, credit spreads are near historical lows (this is the difference between the yield on high-risk securities and risk-free Treasury securities). Tight credit spreads suggest investors are reaching for yield and lack concern for economic turmoil (in short, they are complacent). The last time we saw such tight credit spreads was mid-2007, just prior to the financial collapse. We aren't predicting a repeat of 2007, we are simply saying the bulls should consider exercising caution. Is anybody familiar with "Old Man Partridge" from "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator"? The trend is only your friend until it ends.
