I am a long term commodities buff but have been out for a while from the "Ferrari" of the speculation while me and a few million others were engulfed in the Nasdaq wonder years. I now opened an account with IB and will fund my account for US futures. My question is this - if you do similar stuff - like trade spreads on financials and currencies (which I intend to do) give me some pointers. Any good book or newsletter(on the cheaper side) etc. etc. I know 90% of the spread guys out there are Ag buffs and prefer the seasonals from the financial side. I don't know live-stock from preferred stock so I will stick to finance for now.
