Trading Commodity Spreads

This month on #TechnicalTuesdays I sat down with my friend Q Lahre.  Quick background on Q.  Q was a Pillsbury Chicago Wheat pit trader, Co-Founding Trading Partner at TransMarket Group, Self Employed KC Wheat Trader, former Member, Chicago and KC Boards of Trade & is now the Co-founder of StatFutures.  In this post Q & I discussed Trading Commodity Spreads, why & how Q uses Stochastics & Moving Averages for trading spreads, the role Fibonacci Numbers play in Q’s Stochastic & Moving Average settings &  process for executing trades.

Before you listen to the interview with Q I want to mention the Technical Analysis Guide by RJO Futures. I have it downloaded on my desktop and it’s a great resource for the basics of technical analysis.  If you’re interested in learning about the basics of technical analysis or if you’d like to have a solid resource on the basics of TA I highly recommend you download this free pdf (Click Here to download)
