A decent hedge fund like magazine who trade forex, future, commodities: My review Futures Magazine

Today is the second of three reviews I plan to do with these mainstream Trading and Strategy development magazines. Although I am not a formal reviewer anything, I thought I would give brief overview of them so this is the first one.

FUTURES MAGAZINE

This mag focuses on commodity, options, and forex as they say for very serious traders so it is more advanced! Like in any institutional pro trader magazine like Bloomberg, you will find thought provoking one page editorials. I do like some of articles that do forecasting and impact it could have on the economy as a whole. This of course will affect your trading. I do like these articles which cover some strategies you never heard of which could give you an edge somewhat. (You will of course get even edge if you joined my QuantLabs.net Premium Membership). I just had to throw that in there). You can of course expect to see some professional opinions within the markets. There are some really good tips in this magazine of course.

More Algorithmic Trading Regulation Coming From India – Now For Commodities

India is definitely taking note of algorithmic trading and high frequency trading within its borders.

Following on the heels of a potential ban on algo trading by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), India’s commodity/derivatives watchdog the Forward Markets Commission (FMC) also wants to join the party.

The FMC wants to minimize any adverse effects from high frequency trading or algorithm (algo) trading in commodity exchanges, so at least they don’t want to ban it outright.

In fact, draft guidelines will see algorithmic trading awarded ‘official’ status. It’s currently being ignored despite comprising 20% of Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) volume and 9% of National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) volume.

From the original article, here’s some of what they’re planning to do:

  • Implementing effective economic disincentives for high daily order-to-trade ratio of orders (firms that pull lots of orders without actually executing them will get penalized)
  • A restriction on the number of orders that can be placed per broker/second (again, cutting down on the clutter)
  • Clarifying whether algo trades are providing or removing liquidity (and presumably acting against the traders who do the latter)
  • Rolling out separate systems audits for algo programs

But you have to love the way the chairman contradicts himself in just two sentences:

“The use of technology cannot be restricted in the 21st century. Hence, we want to have some restrictions in place to monitor algo trading in commodity exchanges,” said Ramesh Abhishek, chairman, FMC.

Apparently algorithmic trading cannot be restricted and yet they’re going to be restricting it. Maybe it was just a bad quote from the reporter …

Effective regulation is hardly a bad thing, however. The problem is where they’re going to draw the ‘line in the sand’ about what constitutes order flooding, high daily order-to-trade ratios and other issues considered predatory and manipulative rather than facilitative.

China Gold Hoarding Turns Traders Most Bullish in Two Months: Commodities

China Gold Hoarding Turns Traders Most Bullish in Two Months: Commodities

Gold traders are the most bullish in two months after mainland China imported the most metal ever from Hong Kong and investors bought U.S. bullion coins at the fastest pace in more than a decade.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-01-13/china-gold-hoarding-turns-traders-most-bullish-in-two-months-commodities.html

It is surely self evident that holding only one eighth of the US in gold in reported reserves, China will steadily increase its holdings to back up the renminbi in the years to come.
