Our Futures Trading Results. Week 38 2021


  • Our week in the markets using COT Strategy: +$0
  • Our week in the markets using Champion COT Strategy: +$8,339



A gain of +8,339. That’s a trading results from our commodities and futures trading according to COT data in week number 38. Welcome to InsiderWeek. My name is Max Schulz and in this video I’m going to show to you our trades of this week and the corresponding results. Our gain this week comes from our COT 2 strategy the so-called champions strategy. On our website you can click between our both strategies and see the results of both strategies together such that you can see our equity curve over time. Two trades were responsible for our gain this week. First of all we made profits by trading the 10-Year T-Notes. Here we made +$6,165 and then our second gain comes from Heating Oil where we made +$2,175 profits. Let’s have a look at each trade individually.

As you can see we started into the week with an empty portfolio which consisted of 0 positions. During the week we opened 5 new positions. We closed two of them and we still have 3 open positions left. First of all in Coffee we have 2 long contracts, then we have another trade in Live Cattle where we have 7 contracts, and last but not least we have an open position in Wheat where we are long by 4 contracts. Let’s have a look at the closed positions. 

First of all 10-Year T-Notes: We received the right timing on Wednesday. On Thursday we were triggered and we closed our position on Friday. Many of our positions where in the win and if you have many positions in the win it is important to protect accounting profits and to realise some gains. So we decided to realise the profits in the 10-Year T-Notes. 

We’ve conducted a similar procedure in Heating Oil. Here, we also waited for the right timing and we closed the position after two days to realise our gains in Heating Oil.

By realising this week’s gain we have reached a new all-time high in our second COT strategy account. As a reminder, we started to trade this account with $50,000 in November 2020. Now it’s worth $184,000 which is a gain of +$126,000 in less than a year. 

Let’s have a look at our COT strategy 1. We started into the week here as well with an empty portfolio. We opened one single position during the week and as you can see this position is Heating Oil, 2 long contracts, we are well in the win, and we wait for our target price to be reached. On the weekly chart you can see that we didn’t receive a buy signal. Sometimes it can happen that the COT data isn’t that expressive and informative. In such cases we have techniques how to enter these markets anyways and in our coaching program our participants learn how to apply these techniques. Theory is good but practice is better. That’s why our coaching program lays emphasis on application with real money trading. If you are interested in our coaching program or if you want to test our trading group you can visit our website, fill in your details such that we can give you more information. A few more words on Heating Oil: As you can see we were triggered on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday went very well for us. We are long 4 contracts and we wait for our target price to be reached.

Not only we had a profitable trading week this week but also one of our former students Markus has a great portfolio at the end of this week where he is very well in the win. He has participated in the coaching program previously and now he also publishes his results regularly. The success of our students is our success as well.

Now let’s have a look at CRB index as usual. The commodity price index had a sell-off last week but during the week price has risen again. That’s why we expect commodities to stay bullish.

We wish you all many successful trades for the coming trading week.
