Seasonal Trading Program


This seasonal program was developed on market action over the last 50+ years. Based on this history, the markets that have shown the strongest seasonal tendencies for a given calendar month are set up for a potential entry. If the setup is triggered, each trade is entered in multiples of two contracts for that commodity. There are two price point objectives for the trade. Half of the position is exited when the 1st objective is met, while the 2nd half is exited at the 2nd objective. Protective stops are used to exit the trade. Most of the trades in this program are shorter term. The Seasonal Program offers an opportunity for investors to become involved in the commodities market with a much smaller initial investment. Among the Commodity Interests that may be traded are financial futures; futures on grains, meats, metals, fibers, wood products, sugar, coffee, orange juice, the CRB index, energy futures and stock index and currency futures but may trade in any markets that Mr. Jones determines to be in the best interest of the client.
