(12-29-13) We would expect end of quarter portfolio window-dressing buying in both the coming Monday or Tuesday session with likely spoos reaching fresh highs by Tuesday close.

Fed Taper Action Creates New Opportunity in Long Bonds

Written by Al Martin Monday, 23 December 2013 00:10

 (12-22-13) We’re now trading the March Long Bonds from the long side after last week’s late week action, wherein we think the Bonds were washed out at the 129 area. We were buyers on our standing orders at 129.00 in Thursday’s session, selling them on our standing order at 130.00 on Friday’s close. Bonds were able to get into a higher high late week. We think the Bonds are now due for a bounce and should be traded on the long side with a possible re-tap up to the 131.16 area.

(12-8-13) We’re continuing to trade the Dec. Long Bond contracts until this coming Monday. In Friday’s session, Bonds represented an excellent short-selling opportunity on the back of the better than expected unemployment numbers. Bonds overall we think will now begin to act better.

Iranian Nuclear Accord Creates Trading Opportunity in Crude

Written by Al Martin Sunday, 24 November 2013 23:00

 (11-24-13) We would expect the long-delayed Iranian nuclear proliferation accord signed over the weekend with the United States would exert downward pressure on the Crude in Sunday night trade. If Crude does not immediately drop by 50 cents, it should be sold. We would expect the Crude to come down to the 92.50 area as a result of this easing of Middle Eastern tensions.
