This journal will chronicle my seasonality spread trades as I've worked through MRCIs Encyclopedia of Commodity and Financial Spreads and selected the ones I think have most merit - 63 spreads in total throughout the calendar year. It's a good mixture of grains, softs, the soybean complex, interest rates and energy futures. My IB account for trading futures is relatively small and this is just a side project really, I mainly trade equities. This makes position sizing a bit difficult, and right now I'm only dedicating around 1500 usd to each trade - we'll see if position sizing becomes easier when the account (hopefully) grows. Today I've made two trades: Long 2 Jul Soybean Meal, Short 2 Dec Soybean Meal @ 9.80 Long 1 May Oats, Short 1 Jul Oats @ 5 3/4 I'm planning to add another contract to the Oats trade either tomorrow or Wednesday.
