Commodity ETFs explained | IG
 
04:05
James Butterfill from ETF Securities explains what commodity Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are and how they can be used in your portfolio. ETFs, like investment funds, provide exposure to a portfolio of financial instruments, but they’re traded just like shares on a stock exchange. Some of the benefits of trading ETFs include: • Cost-efficiency • Gaining access to hard-to-reach markets • Increased transparency and flexibility Website: https://www.ig.com/uk/etfs-trading?CHID=9&SM=YT Twitter: https://twitter.com/IGcom Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IGcom Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.iggroup.android.cfd&hl=en_GB LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/igcom Google +: https://plus.google.com/u/0/108999047065291192896 IG is a global leader in retail forex, providing fast and flexible access to over 10,000 financial markets – including indices, shares, forex, commodities .

Natural gas futures (/NG) are among the most largely traded contracts in the energy asset class.

5 Mistakes Investors Make with ETFs | Fidelity
 
04:43
In this video, learn about the five biggest mistakes that investors make when buying ETFs, or exchange-traded funds. To learn the basics about ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/etf/overview. To get started investing with ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/etfs/overview To see more videos from Fidelity Investments, subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/fidelityinvestments Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fidelityinvestments Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/fidelity Google+: https://plus.google.com/+fidelity LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/fidelity-investments --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let’s talk about the five biggest mistakes investors can make when buying exchange-traded funds. ETFs can be good tools for investors - when used appropriately. But with any investment, there are always things to watch out for. Number 1: Buying the Hot New Thing More than 100 new ETF products launch each year, many of them chasing the latest hot trend. Cloud computing, driverless cars, 3-D printing … you name it, there’s an ETF for that. Buying into the latest hot theme might make you big returns, but take care: These product launches may come after there has been a run up in the market. Buying at the top can be painful on the way down. Number 2: Buying Something You Don’t Understand The only thing worse than chasing the hottest trend is buying something you don’t understand. ETFs have taken institutional strategies and made them push-button-easy for everyday investors to access. Want access to commodity futures? There’s an ETF for that. 300% leverage? 200% short? Interest-rate carry plays? Yes to all. But just because you can buy something easily doesn’t mean you should. All of these funds may be good tools, but only if you know how to use them correctly. Number 3: Thinking All ETFs Are Created Equal Consider China. At the start of 2014, there were more than a dozen broad-based China ETFs. For example, had you chosen PGJ, the PowerShares Golden Dragon China ETF, at the start of the year, you would have lost more than 7% of your money. Had you instead chosen ASHR, the Deutsche Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF, you would have earned a 51% return. Both are “China ETFs.” Both can provide big, diversified portfolios. But ASHR has significant exposure to Chinese Ashares—largely consumer-focused stocks listed and traded on the domestic Chinese market— which performed spectacularly well in 2014. Don’t assume all ETFs are created equal. Just because two ETFs cover the same market doesn’t mean they provide the same exposure or returns. There’s no guarantee which fund will perform better in the future. But if you wanted to invest last year in the growth of the Chinese consumer and the domestic investor base there, a little bit of research would have gone a long way. Number 4: Trading…Just Because You Can Trading is central to ETFs. It’s right there in the name. But just because you can trade an ETF intraday doesn’t mean you should. Emotions are often an investor’s worst enemy. You zig when you should zag; you sell at the bottom and buy at the top. We all do sometimes. The trouble is ETFs make that even easier than traditional mutual funds. ETFs’ intraday liquidity can be great when you need to get into or out of the market quickly. But those situations are rare. Number 5: Only Using Market Orders When you do invest, consider using a limit order versus a market order. Market orders are instructions to buy or sell securities at the best possible price right now. That can work well for the most liquid ETFs, but as you move beyond the top dozen ETFs, you can find yourself getting trades executed at prices you don’t really want. Using a limit order means you agree to buy an ETF at a certain price or below, and sell it at a certain price or above. A limit order puts the control back in your hands and can help you set the price on your terms. Learn from these common mistakes to help avoid making them yourself.

Marc Faber - Should You Buy Commodity Futures or ETFs?
 
09:44
For the latest Marc Faber, go to http://MarcFaberBlog.com - It is possible to close the year down lower than we are today. One bubble that is developing is the government debt bubble. In 5 to 10 years time, the interest payments on the debt will go up dramatically. In the United States, you have the symptom of inflation which is the weak dollar. There are also excessive valuation in real estate markets, and there is a credit bubble in China. In Asia, Mr. Bernanke is a concern. They might not want him to keep purchasing mortgage backed securities. If the stock market goes down again, then there will be more stimulus and more quantitative easing. If you look at the world, the strongest manufacturing countries are all countries with a strong currency. A weak currency is directly linked to money printing. In terms in share of world purchasing power, the United States is going down. The emerging world has more car sales, more semiconductor sales, and more oil consumption. There has been a huge shift in the economic power distribution around the world. The cheapest commodity right now is wheat. It is difficult for individuals to play the wheat market. You have to play it with futures, because ETFs are too expensive. If you are willing to take a big risk, then you might want to short the S&P. Amazon, Google and Apple are not acting particularly well. These are signs that some weakness is developing in the stock market. After the huge gains of last year, it is unlikely that we will see another year like that.

Corn Futures Trading Basics: How to Trade the Corn Price 🌽
 
06:40
How to Buy Corn Commodities http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/commodities/how-to-spread-bet-corn.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! Trading Corn. One of the bigger commodities out there (and one of the more volatile ones) is corn. Let's look at corn - what affects this commodity and what are its peculiarities? And how can we as traders potentially capitalise on trading opportunities taking advantage of supply/demand imbalances in this commodity. How to Trade Corn Futures: How to Trade the Corn Price Corn is planted in the spring and harvested in the autumn or fall (if you're in the USA). So the growing season is the most volatile period. Anything that could potentially damage the crop is going to have a significant effect on price. Speculators and market participants are going to be nervous and flocking to buy corn as they think that prices will be much higher in future. So obviously that's where we get the most volatility. In the winter season it is more about the demand rather than the supply of corn. 40% of corn goes into ethanol production. Extreme heat and drought in the mid-west are the biggest fear for farmers... You can trade corn using futures, options, ETFs, CFDs and spreadbets.

How Do Commodity Swaps Work? Finance Wisdom For You Finance Wisdom For You What is a Commodity Swap? How Do Commodity Swaps Work? Commodities are physical assets such as precious metals, base metals, energy stores (such as natural gas or crude oil) and food (including wheat, pork bellies, cattle, etc.). Commodity swaps were first traded in the mid-1970's, and enable producers and consumers to hedge commodity prices. Swaps involving oil prices are probably the most common; however, swaps involving weather derivatives are increasingly popular. The floating leg of a commodity swap is tied to the price of a commodity or a commodity index, while the fixed leg payments are stipulated in the contract as in an interest rate swap. The vast majority of commodity swaps involve oil. So, for example, a company that uses a lot of oil might use a commodity swap to secure a maximum price for oil. In return, the company receives payments based on the market price (usually an oil price index). On the other side, if a producer of oil wishes to fix its income, it would agree to pay the market price to a financial institution in return for receiving fixed payments for the commodity.

Using Market Internals for Market Timing & Trading Volatility ETFs - Mastertrader.com

The Master Trader approach to successful trading and investing is to find a high probability Setup in Multiple Time Frames (MTF), then Enter and Manage per your Trading Plan, unemotionally and objectively. We rely primarily on what we see in MTF; however, using market internals help in determining probable reversal points. Sentiment measures how bullish or bearish the “wrong way” option traders are. Breadth tells us if the overall markets are overbought or oversold. We also use – and trade -- Volatility ETFs. The current VIX Term Structure (which shows futures prices versus spot) is currently in backwardation because of the recent spike in VIX. Tune into this week’s Master Trader Live to learn: • Master Trader’s Techno-Fundamental approach using Market Internals, Inter-market Analysis, and Technical Analysis (like a 3-Legged Stool). • How we use and interpret market internals with a real-time analysis. • Master Trader’s approach in trading options on VXX/UVXY (volatility ETFs) as well trading SPY and other Index ETFs when things line up. • How trading using Master Trader Strategies (MTS) – with MTF in alignment – will dramatically increase your odds of success in trading or investing in any Index, ETF, Currency or Commodity in any time frame. • How we scan for new opportunity in real-time.

Commodity ETF
 
01:34
http://www.cakefinancial.com Today’s energy markets are booming, fueling demand for new ways to invest in the sector—and making commodities ETFs more and more popular. First, let’s review how ETFs, or exchange-traded funds, work. These investment vehicles, like mutual funds, hold assets, such as stocks or bonds. But, unlike mutual funds, they trade on an exchange, like stocks. Commodities ETFs are simply ETFs that track commodities, such as precious metals, oil, gas, and crops. Different commodities ETFs do this in different ways. Some hold physical assets, so each share in an ETF might present a specified amount of the asset—say, one-tenth of an ounce of gold. Others track the performance of commodities-related stocks or futures contracts. Most investors won’t want to make commodities ETFs the bulk of their portfolio—it’s simply too risky. But commodities ETFs can be a good diversifier. That’s because they can help hedge your portfolio against rising commodities prices, which can drive up inflation and drive down the prices of stocks.

The Timing is Right for Commodity ETFs
 
03:49
As investors consider ways to diversify a stock and bond portfolio, it may be prudent to consider alternative assets like commodity ETFs that offer potentially uncorrelated returns to traditional assets. Investors who want access precious metals may consider a number of physically backed metals-related ETFs as a way to diversify a traditional stock and portfolio, including ETFS Physical Swiss Gold Shares (NYSEArca: SGOL), ETFS Physical Silver Shares (NYSEArca: SIVR), ETFS Physical Platinum Shares (NYSEArca: PPLT) and ETFS Physical Palladium Shares (NYSEArca: PALL). ETF investors can also use the ETFS Physical Precious Metals Basket Shares (NYSEArca: GLTR) as a catch-all of all four precious metals.

Trading Concepts: Volatility Products and Drag
 
15:48
ETFs that track commodities sometimes under perform due to a principle known as drag. Check out the segment to see how you can use this to your advantage! See more volatility trading videos: http://ow.ly/DSOaf Commodity ETFs are usually designed to track a given commodity futures contract. However, you may have noticed that some ETFs don’t track the futures contract directly and often underperform. This happens due to the drag that the funds experience. Drag is caused by the fund having to roll from one month futures contract to the next. Normally, the back month is more expensive than the front month and this is known as Contango. The fund has to sell a cheaper future and buy a more expensive one so this net debit transaction causes the price of the ETF to be dragged down. Today, Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista explain the principle of drag and how you can take advantage of it using a couple of different strategies in VXX and UVXY! ======== tastytrade.com ======== Finally a financial network for traders, built by traders.

In this one-hour webinar, IndexUniverse.com Director of Research Dave Nadig will discuss the challenges of getting effective commodities exposure with ETFs, strategies for controlling risks, and new indexing methods that may improve on the current models.

Oil Futures Markets: Prices, ETF, Analysis, Explained, Funds, History, Investment (1990)
 
03:07:29
Contracts on financial instruments were introduced in the 1970s by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and these instruments became hugely successful and quickly overtook commodities futures in terms of trading volume and global accessibility to the markets. This innovation led to the introduction of many new futures exchanges worldwide, such as the London International Financial Futures Exchange in 1982 (now Euronext.liffe), Deutsche Terminbörse (now Eurex) and the Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM). Today, there are more than 90 futures and futures options exchanges worldwide trading to include: CME Group (formerly CBOT and CME) -- Currencies, Various Interest Rate derivatives (including US Bonds); Agricultural (Corn, Soybeans, Soy Products, Wheat, Pork, Cattle, Butter, Milk); Indices (Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ Composite, S&P 500, etc.); Metals (Gold, Silver) Intercontinental Exchange (ICE Futures Europe) - formerly the International Petroleum Exchange trades energy including crude oil, heating oil, gas oil (diesel), refined petroleum products, electric power, coal, natural gas, and emissions NYSE Euronext - which absorbed Euronext into which London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange or LIFFE (pronounced 'LIFE') was merged. (LIFFE had taken over London Commodities Exchange ("LCE") in 1996)- softs: grains and meats. Inactive market in Baltic Exchange shipping. Index futures include EURIBOR, FTSE 100, CAC 40, AEX index. South African Futures Exchange - SAFEX Sydney Futures Exchange Tokyo Stock Exchange TSE (JGB Futures, TOPIX Futures) Tokyo Commodity Exchange TOCOM Tokyo Financial Exchange - TFX - (Euroyen Futures, OverNight CallRate Futures, SpotNext RepoRate Futures) Osaka Securities Exchange OSE (Nikkei Futures, RNP Futures) London Metal Exchange - metals: copper, aluminium, lead, zinc, nickel, tin and steel IntercontinentalExchange (ICE Futures U.S.) - formerly New York Board of Trade - softs: cocoa, coffee, cotton, orange juice, sugar New York Mercantile Exchange CME Group- energy and metals: crude oil, gasoline, heating oil, natural gas, coal, propane, gold, silver, platinum, copper, aluminum and palladium Dubai Mercantile Exchange JFX Jakarta Futures Exchange Montreal Exchange (MX) (owned by the TMX Group) also known in French as Bourse De Montreal: Interest Rate and Cash Derivatives: Canadian 90 Days Bankers' Acceptance Futures, Canadian government bond futures, S&P/TSX 60 Index Futures, and various other Index Futures Korea Exchange - KRX Singapore Exchange - SGX - into which merged Singapore International Monetary Exchange (SIMEX) ROFEX - Rosario (Argentina) Futures Exchange NCDEX - National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, India Futures traders are traditionally placed in one of two groups: hedgers, who have an interest in the underlying asset (which could include an intangible such as an index or interest rate) and are seeking to hedge out the risk of price changes; and speculators, who seek to make a profit by predicting market moves and opening a derivative contract related to the asset "on paper", while they have no practical use for or intent to actually take or make delivery of the underlying asset. In other words, the investor is seeking exposure to the asset in a long futures or the opposite effect via a short futures contract. Speculators typically fall into three categories: position traders, day traders, and swing traders (swing trading), though many hybrid types and unique styles exist. With many investors pouring into the futures markets in recent years controversy has risen about whether speculators are responsible for increased volatility in commodities like oil, and experts are divided on the matter. [7] An example that has both hedge and speculative notions involves a mutual fund or separately managed account whose investment objective is to track the performance of a stock index such as the S&P 500 stock index. The Portfolio manager often "equitizes" cash inflows in an easy and cost effective manner by investing in (opening long) S&P 500 stock index futures. This gains the portfolio exposure to the index which is consistent with the fund or account investment objective without having to buy an appropriate proportion of each of the individual 500 stocks just yet. This also preserves balanced diversification, maintains a higher degree of the percent of assets invested in the market and helps reduce tracking error in the performance of the fund/account. When it is economically feasible (an efficient amount of shares of every individual position within the fund or account can be purchased), the portfolio manager can close the contract and make purchases of each individual stock. The social utility of futures markets is considered to be mainly in the transfer of risk, and increased liquidity between traders with different risk and time preferences, from a hedger to a speculator, for example. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futures_contract
