Commodities Sluggish But Still Outperform Equities

Commodities demonstrated mixed performance in August as market participants grew increasingly concerned about the extent of the global growth slowdown.

Nelson Louie, Global Head of Commodities in Credit Suisse’s Asset Management division, said, “Commodities demonstrated mixed performance in August as weaker macroeconomic data and uncertainty surrounding the state of the global economy continued to impact markets.  Falling consumer confidence, poor non-farm payroll figures, and other weak leading economic indicators are increasing recessionary fears.  However, realized data from July on global industrial production momentum indicated a rebound began in May.  Chinese trade data for July suggests economic activity is still robust, with imports of key commodities remaining strong.  Fundamentals for key commodities look to be growing increasingly tight in the face of strong demand and constraints on supply growth.”

Christopher Burton, Senior Portfolio Manager for the Credit Suisse Total Commodity Return Strategy, added, “While increased volatility and risk aversion were common themes across capital and commodity markets in August, commodities outperformed equities with the S&P 500 losing 5.43%.  We believe investors will continue to benefit from the diversification benefits that commodities provide.”

The Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index Total Return was up by 1.00% in August.  Overall, 8 out of 19 index constituents increased in value.  Precious Metals was the strongest sector, gaining 10.10% for August, due to continued strong investor demand.  Agriculture was also a strong performer, up 9.22%, led by grains and Coffee.  Estimates for Corn yield were reduced to lower than the USDA’s latest estimates amid the recent hot and dry weather damaging the developing crop. This may suggest that the USDA will ultimately reduce their production and ending inventory expectations.  Livestock ended the month lower, losing 4.60%, led by Lean Hogs on expectations that previously strong China export demand may ease and that hog weights may improve in the fall.  Higher feed costs also mean livestock may be brought to market sooner than expected.  The Energy sector posted a loss of 4.92%, with all components trading lower.  Fundamental data releases remained broadly supportive for the crude complex, but concerns increased that demand would eventually falter.  Industrial Metals was the worst performing sector, given the sector’s high correlation with global growth, ending the month down 7.48%. Fears of a hard landing in China weighed on the sector, as did concerns growth would slow in the developed world.

The Credit Suisse Total Commodity Return Strategy group periodically produces updates on relevant industry topics. For a copy of the team’s white paper, “Commodities Outlook: Increased Volatility, Increase Opportunity?“, please email csam.commodities@credit-suisse.com.

About the Credit Suisse Total Commodity Return Strategy

Credit Suisse’s Total Commodity Return Strategy has been managed for 17 years and seeks to outperform the return of a commodities index, such as the Dow Jones–UBS Commodity Index Total Return or the S&P GSCI Total Return Index, using both a quantitative and qualitative commodity research process. Commodity index total returns are achieved through:

  • Spot Return: price return on specified commodity futures contracts;
  • Roll Yield: impact due to migration of futures positions from near to far contracts; and
  • Collateral Yield: return earned on collateral for the futures.

As of August 31, 2011 the team managed approximately USD 11.4 billion in assets globally.

An investment in commodities is not a complete investment program and should represent only a portion of an investor’s portfolio management strategy.  Investment in commodity markets may not be suitable for all investors. Commodity markets are highly volatile and the risk of loss in commodities and commodity-linked investments can be substantial.

FX Broker Offers New Charting Service

Autochartist’s ambition is to listen to their client’s needs and offer valuable solutions, to this end their new service, named “AlpariAM”, is completely geared towards giving traders as much valuable information as possible, and in the shortest achievable time, for opportunities in the Forex market. It’s almost like a take-away espresso – it packs a lot of punch while being quick and easy to digest.

AlpariAM is based on the world-renowned technical analysis service that made Autochartist so popular among retail traders. The identified opportunities are visual signals that people find easy to understand and use to quickly formulate their opinions on market direction. This, in combination with other basic technical indicators such as RSI and moving averages, gives AlpariAM the potency that enables traders to assimilate the information in a short time.

Indeed, this product is aimed at traders who need a quick overview of the forex market. The interface is simple and intuitive with both text and images that describe key levels of support and resistance. This is available in eleven languages, and graphically illustrates the patterns that have formed with the direction in which price movements are expected to move.

The Chief Operating Officer of Autochartist, Erik Voges, says, “The simplicity and crispness of this interface is enough to please most traders , but the real power behind this interface lies with the amount of information that it enables traders to absorb in a very short time.”

Since Alpari account holders are spread far and wide across the globe, it makes sense for these reports to be released three times daily, at the opening of trade in the 3 most influential forex markets, starting with Tokyo in the morning, and followed by London and then New York. With each update around a dozen of the latest chart pattern formations are displayed on the currency pair graphs. These opportunities typically have a lifespan of between 6 to 40 hours, during which they can be considered trade-able.

Autochartist currently boasts a high statistical average – around 70% of chart patterns reaching their forecast levels. With such a remarkable track record, versatile tools and commitment to their clients, Autocharist remains the global leader in chart pattern recognition.

“We are very excited to launch an innovative new research tool like ‘Alpari AM’ in partnership with a high-caliber name such as Autochartist. Our long-standing relationship gave us the opportunity of being the first broker in the FX space to offer this product making our clients the first traders to sample it in action.”, said George Tchetvertakov, Head of Market Research at Alpari (UK).

About Autochartist

More than 2,000,000 chart patterns are viewed by customers in over 80 countries worldwide.

Forex Broker Expands Services to Include ECN

As a result of this merger, ITFX will be a prominent leader in the Online Forex industry as one of the most diverse and user-friendly Forex Trading platforms to fulfill the clients’ needs and expectations in this complex industry. It will not only allow them to access ECN and STP on MT4, but give them diversification in their trading techniques and allow them more options to advance to the next level of Online Trading. http://www.investtechfx.com

ECN brokers are the purest breeds among all Forex Currency Exchanges. They don’t profit on spread difference; their only profit comes from commission. ITFX is transforming as part of a merger to enhance their Forex ECN services as well as their functionality when it comes to completing worldwide transactions in the Online Forex Market .

InvestTechFX’s current management team proposed the creation of a new management company designed to expand upon its core strengths as a software solutions company providing the MT4 platform for FX Trading. The proposal was approved in August 2011 which includes a merger with an Asian-based operation. The merger will allow InvestTechFX to offer clients direct access to (ECN) Electronic Communications Network as well continuing STP service. Previously, ITFX acted strictly as a Straight Through Processor (STP) and No Dealing Desk (NDD). As recognized in the industry, ITFX was solely a Non-Dealing Desk Software Solutions Company that processed clients’ trades on the STP network uninterrupted to the Interbank. Now with this new merger, ITFX will be joining the latest trends in the Forex Trading Industry by moving to the Forex ECN style of trading while maintaining STP status.

Deal Desk Brokers contrast in many diverse ways. The differences that separate types of brokers in the Forex Market break down into three major groups:

There are market makers, which trade against traders to make a profit as well as manipulate their spreads. In addition, some customers of market makers usually experience delayed orders. Another style of broker known is STP, this kind of broker sends orders directly to the Interbank. STPs offer the option of fixed or variable spreads which often benefits all parties. Finally ECN’s offer variable spreads based on supply, demand, volatility and other conditions in the market and in return allow the trader to trade on very tight spreads. Forex ECN’s also have a larger pool of traders compared to STPs and which gives faster execution of orders and no re-quotes to the customers.

As the above suggests, the Forex ECN Network presents a much better environment in terms of the client’s needs and expectations with regards to pricing, faster execution of orders, variable spreads and convenience of no re-quotes.
After the launch date September 1, 2011, the new format will allow ITFX, the 0.5 PIP fixed provider, to maintain its NDD status while enabling them to operate in both ECN and STP networks. With this new format, they will be able to increase their competitive edge as well as allow clients more options within their Forex Trading techniques. http://www.investtechfx.com

Forex Broker Offers Risk Management Tips

Here are three tips on forex risk management from award-winning broker FX Solutions ( http://www.fxsolutions.com).

Keep your trade sizes sensible

Even the most experienced trader can be outmanoeuvred by the breakneck pace of the foreign exchange market, not to mention the leverage involved in forex trading [http://www.fxsolutions.com/learning-tools/forex-glossary.asp ]. Leverage can boost your profits, but it can also magnify your losses in the same way should the markets move against you. Every forex trader gets things wrong at some point, so never trade more than you can afford to lose. A bad trade is forgivable – an overtrade is not.

Know your markets and the activity around them

As Sandy Jadeja, Technical Strategist of FX Solutions, states: “The methods of utilizing technical analysis are many and varied. They include such ubiquitous concepts as head and shoulders, support and resistance, trends, moving averages, and double-tops.”

Fundamental analysis also brings a host of potential catalysts into consideration in the form of major economic reports and news events. Analyse both past technical data and news feeds to gain a clearer picture of the state of a currency.

Make use of all the tools available

FX Solutions offers free newsfeeds, tutorials, forex charting packages [http://www.fxsolutions.com/learning-tools/charting.asp ] and more, all of which can provide you with invaluable support and insights into workings of the foreign exchange market.

Another effective tool to minimize your potential downsides is to employ stop-loss orders on every trade you place. Stop-losses automatically exit a position when a trade reaches a certain price point, therefore limiting losses or locking in profits depending on the point at which they are applied.

For example, imagine the euro is about to rise against the U.S. dollar, and that you have opened a position of 100,000 units at $1.4500. Placing a stop-loss order at $1.4460 would limit your maximum loss to $400 while also giving the trade room to potentially turn around should the market start to move against you.

Gold Coin Investors Get Help with Counterfeits

Aurum Advisors is now adding a counterfeit coin pamphlet with the free gold investors guide. “We want consumers to be able to determine on their own what the difference is between a good coin and a coin that is graded or slabbed by a subpar grading service,” says Aurum Advisors President, Marc Lubaszka. It is uncommon for investors to receive counterfeit coins as long as they stick with the two most prestigious grading services in the nation, which are the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) & Numismatic Grading Corporation (NGS).

Those are the only two grading services that are used in the new pamphlet, and pictures are provided of what each sonically sealed container that encapsulates each coin looks like. The guide also contains the par code that corresponds to each coin and the hologram that guarantees the authenticity.

“It’s important for investors to feel confident when they purchase gold coins, so we felt it was important to add something to our free gold guide that shows them what they can expect to purchase before they decide to buy,” said Lubaszka. “Even if a consumer doesn’t buy from us, after getting our free gold guide they will be more prepared when purchasing gold from another dealer.”
