Market rankings for the option trader

Friday commodity market rankings - 10/27/17, By Brad King

Since my last update both the energy and equity markets have been extremly strong. You should have had a chance to roll up calls to reduce your risk since I last wrote here.

While the Japanese Yen has been weak, I think its time to look at other markets to sell. You should be able to exit with profits.

Does global economic strength spill into metals? I am looking at silver to see if this occurs. Buy call options today.

I am not sure if grains have much more room on the downside for a bit. If you have profits in your corn or wheat options, roll them lower.

In the livestock, I like holding shorts for hedgers only. Speculators might want to be long feeders.

That's all for today. Have a great weekend.
