I have been trading commodities equities and currencies for more than 10 years. I am now starting a thread to track in a public forum, my commodities trading performance. I have put a small amount (currently about USD59k*) in a brokerage account that I have opened. I had started with USD16k in August 2011, and added funds as I went along. I trade most commodities both long and short, holding as short as a month and as long as 4 months. I use both fundamentals and technicals. I will track my performance on a % basis rather than $ basis, given I am still adding funds. I will be updating my journal monthly. With some comments as I go along. I intend that this journal be largely an orderly archive of my thoughts of my commodities trades for years to come. *for this amount, one needs to trade commodity CFDs than futures.
