Futures Trading Guide

Find promising commodity trade ideas with Barchart’s Futures Trading Guide

Barchart’s Futures Trading Guide is a hypothetical trading system, designed to show you the profitability of commodity trades based on a 9-18 Day MACD Crossover strategy. The Futures Trading Guide takes a Buy position when the shorter term 9-Day Moving Average closes above the longer term 18-Day Moving Average, and takes a Sell position when the 9-Day closes below the 18-Day. The result? An insider's view of the Total Profit generated by the strategy, including historical trade breakdown!

Barchart Premier Members get access to the day's current trades, where you can track the performance of futures contracts in the middle of an open Buy or Sell trade. A Barchart Premier Membership also unlocks the 1-Year Historical Performance of this system, so you can see for yourself how each trade developed and the total Profit generated.

The Futures Trading Guide is the ultimate tool to help you find potential breakout commodity futures contracts. Use it in your trading to analyze the past performance of the trading system, and start finding new potential trades that show the best potential to out-perform.
