As we move into a period of heightened seasonal volatility in the financial markets, and the fall harvest begins in earnest, commodity hedgers may benefit from revisiting their hedges and doing some fine tuning based on market conditions and developing trends. Below are five tools available through StoneX MI to help:
- Commodity Tracker
Get a comprehensive view of broad commodity complex trends and track performance against other financial industry benchmarks like treasury yield curves and the S&P 500 index. Or examine specific sectors with sub-trackers for energy, industrial metals, precious metals, grains and oilseeds, softs and livestock.
- Futures Seasonal
View the seasonality of commodity price, volume and open interest for more than 30 different futures contracts along corresponding futures curves.
