Trading Softs?

  1. Anyone out there trading softs? Cocoa, coffee, sugar...

    Please share comments, web resources...

  2. For starters try

    Sugar, nice and steady, a lot of calendar spread volume a lot of daily volume with 12-18 pt range.

    Coffee-you are on your own their my friend, very volatile had more than their fair shre of limit up/down days. Pit brokers can butcher your order, so don't give mkt orders to many times.

    cocoa- genrally quiet markets punctuated by 3 standard deviation moves 1-2 a year.

    Check out spread book by courtney smith which deals a little bit about softs.

    Good luck

    Of the three, I prefer the cocoa and sugar markets as far as applicability of TA on those charts. For resources, you might find the following site useful.
