Technical analysis really works in Ag futures?

Discussion in 'Commodity Futures' started by crgarcia, Oct 25, 2007.

  1. Compared to the stock market?
  2. The same profitable T/A techniques work on the ag futures products too. I have done backtesting work and found results that were robust from the same system used with index futures contracts.
  3. What are you using EMA, SMA crossovers or what?
  4. A huge influence on grains market are supply and demand as well as rumors, weather expectations, etc ....

    As far as TA is concerned support & resistance levels are most trustworthy.

    Compared to stocks none of the agriculturals will ever trade close to 0 :D
  5. I use the method with stoch and macd, and I will be beta testing the felton automated system on several ag contracts in the next few weeks. So far all my preliminary work looks very good on non-index futures contracts for the trade system.

    The automated system has been currently testing on index futures products.
