Introduction to Commodity Trading

comm Introduction to Commodity Trading

Commodities involve trading of raw products or physical goods. These products cover multiple foods, fuels, livestock and other precious metals that are being traded or exchanged. With the introduction to commodity trading, you are investing the future value of the product. It is just the same if you are trading cash or stock that is bought and sold in standardized contracts. In buying or selling commodities, you are trading the ownership of a product. Commodity trading influences the economy through helping in making public forecasts about future costs of goods. It also allows global investors to lose or make money. The typical example of this is the oil. This commodity is considered as the most widely watched good due to its irregular price changing.
Why do prices of commodities keep on changing? The cost of every good keeps on varying due to numerous factors. These factors include money supply, inflation and taxes. Other factors include weather, transportation and technologies. Commodities are classified into two types, and these are the following:
• Soft Commodities – These good cover agricultural products like sugar, coffee and coffee. The prices of these commodities are affected with cultural factors. Its supplies are also affected by weather, transportation, soil and insects.
• Energies – These commodities include natural gas and crude oil. Political and technological things affect its supply. As time passes by, the demands for these goods keep on rising. It is because energies are being used in countless activities.
Like stock market, commodity trading is quite faster. It is because investors can generate money a lot faster if excellent research, good instinct and quality product trading guidance involved. However, commodity trading doesn’t need multiple upfront investments.
How can you start trading commodities? In trading a commodity, you have to learn about trading strategies and the future contract specifications of every commodity. Commodities have similar premise just like other investments. As a businessman, you opt to buy low goods and sell them in high rates. If you are planning to participate in commodity trading, you should know what you are doing. With combined knowledge and sufficient trading skills, it would be easier for you to start a trading business with successful results.
Who are the players involved in commodity trading? As a part of the introduction to commodity trading, you also need to know the three distinct types of players in the markets. These are the commercials, large speculators and small speculators. Commercials pertain to the entities who engage in the creation, processing or merchandising of the goods. These players account for most of the trading in commodity markets. Large speculators, on the other hand, are a group of investors that combine their money altogether to minimize the risk and raise profits. Similar with mutual funds in the stock market, these large speculators have capital managers that create investment decisions in behalf of all investors. Also, small speculators are individual product traders who operate on their own accounts. Both large and small speculators are known for their skills of shaking up the commodity market.
What is the size of commodity markets? As stated by Commodity Futures Trading Commission or CFTC, commodity markets are continuously expanding. The main reason of this is the global interest in national and regional commodity trends. Transactions take place between the seller and buyer wherein buyers take delivery of the traded goods. Highly leveraged financial goods or derivatives transactions standing in for physical contracts allow sellers and buyers to be cautious on physical goods or put financial stakes on trends.
Along with the introduction to commodity trading, you also need to study its different strategies. These commodity tactics help you in having a suitable approach to time your trades. Strategies for commodity trading often follow either a range break out methodology or trading method. You can also use the variations of both schemes, depending on your preference and market standing.
• Range Trading Method – This scheme requires buying the good at a bottom ranges and selling it at a top range. In this method, the commodity is oversold and its costs drop to rock bottom stages, and sellers target to sell an overbought commodity if its price reaches peak stage.
• Breakout Method – This method needs you to buy a good at a high level and sell it if the rates dwindle and create new lows. For easy tracking the low and high levels, checking graphical representations in multiple news and reports is advised.
Sticking to your exact strategy is also one of the useful commodity trading strategies that you should do. For novice traders, you should recognize the production of commodity cycles, especially food items. Since seasonal affects the main price of goods, you have to be more conscious about this market flow.
With the introduction to commodity trading, it would be easier for you to compete with other traders. Whether you are new to this business or not, you can have the knowledge and skills to improve your sales and acquire huge profits.

Mutual Funds for Beginner

Mutual Fund Primer

A mutual fund pool is an investment fund that is collated by various different investors and then invested into a portfolio that is constructed of various different securities based on what the investors’ request. A mutual fund company is normally known to invest in various different stocks, bonds, and money markets. In order for ownership to be claimed on these assets, the size of the investor’s stake in the fund will be taken into consideration.
An open end company
All mutual funds are open ended companies, legally and this is one of the three kinds of investment companies that are available to investors. The other two types of companies are unit investment trusts (UITs) and the close ended funds. The open ended company is one that is legally able to pool money from various different investors into one particular portfolio of all investments instead of putting each investment in a single portfolio for each investor. When this is done, an investor does not own the actual portfolio, instead they own shares in the portfolio.
Ownership
When you invest in a mutual fund, you are basically buying shares in the investment portfolio. In mutual funds the pool will continue to grow in order for this particular portfolio to facilitate other investors. However, the mutual funds may opt to stop selling shares if they realize that the pool has gotten too big. As an investor, you have the option of buying and selling your shares through the mutual fund and there is no need to go through a broker or a secondary market.
Advantages of having a mutual fund
Having a mutual fund appears very attractive to some investors based on a variety of reasons. They come very affordable and all investors, no matter their level in the investing scheme. Therefore, as an investor you can find very low prices on the initial and subsequent purchases. These portfolios are also managed by professionals whose job it is to carry out research, choose the right investment for the funds, and to monitor the performance of the portfolio. When you opt to go with a mutual fund, you are also choosing to minimize your risk.
Disadvantages of mutual funds
Although there are numerous benefits to going with investing in a mutual fund, as with every investment markets there are a few drawbacks and the major one is that it has various different cost such as sales charges and annual fees that will be accrued no matter how your funds perform.
When you opt to invest in a mutual fund you can gain wealth as the stocks that you invest in grows. As a Wall Street investor, it is expected that there are some considerable amount of wealth to be gained from investing in a mutual fund.

Twitter – Invest if you can afford

Twitter: Is this is a good investment or speculative investment?

 

Link to check price here http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=twtr

Twitter has a rough chart from IPO; but  the 52 weeks range is between 38.80 – 74.73

 

I bought some $65 2015 calls for $3.90 last month; now they are trading at $14 more than tripling my investment.

 

Now it may not be too late; it may be another stock which may go up to 200-300 range in 1-2 years. if you want to ride the wave and risk couple of  thousand dollars, buy the 2016 $100 calls at $7

 

Let us see what happens 6 months from now

Gold Mutual Funds

c428773 s Gold Mutual Funds

Introduction
Gold is one of the precious metals that have since the beginning has garnered itself a place on the top and despite its availability is still in huge demands. Thanks to the ever-growing gold obsession, several gold mutual funds have been brought on. Most of them invest in Gold fund because it is the best and smart way to make colossal investments.
Almost all of them are buying designer gold jewels, which are, nonetheless, attractive as it has been for centuries. Although acquiring a hoard of designer jewelry is magnificent, it gnaws one’s mind regarding its safety. To keep the precious metals safe, the first option you might come upon is the neighborhood bank, which in turn calls for a check on their security, financial status and the service charges that they may charge for their services provided. But instead of accumulating jewelry, the best way to make huge investment is by buying bullion gold’s, such as, gold bars and coins. There are other gold investments that the traders and investors use, they are, Options, Futures, Commodities Contracts.
Importance of Gold ETFs
Gold mutual funds are the best way for a long term investment and an equally admirable substitute to safekeeping and holding gold bullions is Gold EFTs. Gold EFTs are exchange traded funds that are bought and sold as any stocks at the price tag that is close to the price of the gold sold at that moment. They could be bought and sold at any time the investor or trader wanted at the usual market trading hours. Exciting as it is, there are a couple of things that one should keep an eye out for. Some are on the thought that Gold ETF is identical to the other commodities bought and sold but that is far from the truth.
Few of them will have their own bullion whereas others will trade in based on the then gold futures contracts. And there is another set of group who has access to both bullion and futures and as time favors, lean in on the side that shows profit. Nonetheless, gold ETFs are the best gold mutual funds which also comprises of non-gold stocks and bonds.
Gold Ornaments
Unlike gold bullions, gold jewelry does not bring about any ready cash when required. In case of an emergency, gold ornaments do not get sold immediately; this can’t be said for gold coins and bars. The reasons could be ample, the buyer may not like the content of the jewelry or the workmanship or simply don’t like the style. Owing to these reason, you either end up selling the trinkets for a lower price than it is worth or not at all. The main reason why a trinket is top rated is because when you buy a stylish piece of jewelry, you pay for the store’s security, insurance and other amenities whilst gold bars and coins do not have these amenities. To come upon the best gold mutual funds, it is always wise to consult competent certified financial advisor.

Money Market

c373355 s Money Market
You just have options which are limited in your local banks and a number in the national banks if you desire of the best money market rates. Nowadays, you will be able to find money rates in the host of the banks all around the nation because of the emergence of the online banking and online shopping. These sites could be used for comparison in case you are looking for the best money market rates. Because of the competition that is getting fierce, the banks would even try harder to earn your choice. And at that point, you can use this knowledge as an advantage in getting the best money market rates.
Determining Money Market Rates
You may ask this question – how will money market rates be determined? Well, let’s start with the fact that the money market accounts are savings accounts which are turbo charged. You will be able to earn almost the same interest rate and at the same time you could write checks coming from them but only for a limited number. Although the return in the money market accounts is not that high as compared to the certificates of deposit (CDs), it would still be of convenience. When it comes to the money market accounts, you can withdraw the amount of money you need whenever you need it. Hence, the bank would be giving you lesser interest.
Just like the CDs, the money market rates are changing daily. There is no formula and co clear all-time winner whenever you look for a bank that would be providing you with the highest rates. Luckily, the sites which give you banking rate comparisons would allow you to compare the current market rates between the banks. At the same time, you are given the details with regard to the specific terms like the number of checks you could write or even the minimum balance (if there is) that you will be needing before you will be charged with a fee every month. The usual case would let you invest as low as $1000. Unless you go below that amount, you will not be charged with a monthly fee. As brought by the nature of the market accounts, there is a legal limit on the number of checks that could be written within the month.
Furthermore, the maximum rates which are given to the money market accounts are part of the advertisements and are in the account paperwork as the Annual Percentage Yield or popularly known as APY. In order to get the APY, the holder of the account must leave the principal deposit as well as the interest which were earned by the account. In this way, the interests are permitted of earning interest as well. This is what is referred to as compounded interest.
Opening of a Money Market Account
In frequent times, any credit union or bank would be requiring the lowest possible amount of balance to open a money market account. This required balance must be maintained in producing interest. The account owner must complete the verification process of the requirement of the minimum balance in making sure that the bank would continue to produce the highest market rates.
Henceforth, the holder of the account must be able to follow the federal policies and regulations. These policies serve as a guarantee that there will be no costs that will be charged to your account. Any costs that would be charged could possibly affect the capacity of the account holder in getting the highest rates of the money market that has been advertised in favor of the said account. The said costs could include Regulation D fees, monthly service fees and transaction charges.
Because there is the possibility that the money market rates could change, the holders of the accounts must continue in verifying other banks and credit unions in order to find the best rates that are being offered. The accounts could be closed and the owners have the freedom to transfer their money into another account without incurring penalties. It is just that the account holder must move the funds only after any interest earned have been posted into his or her account.
So, which would you choose? Would it be money market account or the CDs? This question would be usually asked because the two has many similarities. If you will not need an access into your account for quite some time, the CDs would be paying a higher rate. But if you need to write checks in a flexible manner, have access to your funds in an instant manner and you want an interest rate of a savings account that is competitive, you have to choose money market account.
The money market account is a low risk and a safe way of investing your funds while you are given the freedom in accessing your money anytime you need it.
