Futures Trading Guide: Commodities Overview

The Futures Trading Guide is a hypothetical trading system which 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 profit is based on the point value of one futures contract from the Last price compared to the settlement price on the start date of the signal. Use the Historical Performance page to see how the Trading Guide has performed over 1-Year.
