I dont really know much about commodities trading, but recently I've been going over some charts just for the heck of it. I know they have the reputation of trading primarily off of the technicals.............I was surprised to see certain patterns on the charts play out in textbook format (much less common in the stock market), and futures seem to have a much higher level of respect for S/R, Fibs, MAs, candlesticks, etc with futures. So my question is........what is the catch. We are all mostly technicians on ET, and our tools seem to work much better with futures than on stocks.........why do so few people trade them. I'm not referring to daytrading......I'm talking swing/position trading. From what I can see the reasons are: 1. Many consider basic commodities an obsure game 2. Liquidity/Execution issues What else?
