Forex, futures and stocks trading
« on: August 16, 2018, 04:08:21 AM »
After the big drop in the metals, I took a small position in each of the PM's , 1 futures contact long each
Bought Silver @ 14.35
Bought Gold @ 1161
Bought Palladium @835
Bought Platinum @ 757

Using a trailing stop, these can turn to extremely profitable trades with very small risk with a stop.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

@ludmila what brokerage do you use to purchase futures, if I may ask?

They all work. See what commission they charge. IIRC Schwab is around $4 RT for e-micro contract.

How far out?
Dec 2018, and platinum Jan 2019. I just closed the Palladium trade 100 oz. @ spot $903 up $57 today, which will give me a good profit to hold the other contracts longer.  The metals have been very volatile, so I am keeping tight stops on the rest.

+1  I use more than 1, Interactive Brokers, Ameritrade and several others are fine, check commissions, minimum balances, charting  etc.

Bought Silver @ 14.35 Closed 8-24 @ 14.86   profit $2550
Bought Gold @ 1161  Closed 8-24 @ 1208.1  profit $4710
Bought Palladium @835 Closed earlier @5700$ profit-I exited this early, currently $942 which would have been a $9600 profit, but I wanted to have some off the table to keep holding the other 3.
Bought Platinum @ 757 Closed 8-24 @ $795  profit $3800

I considered following you but IB doesn't seem to offer CAD.NOK.

I know, not many do, the NOK is not a major pair.  Another way to do it is to buy USD/CAD and sell USD/NOK , a little complex  as you need the same amount.
