What is the technical analysis in commodity trading


Well-Known Member
Isn't Technical analysis the same for stocks and commodities. But some commodities are much more volatile. Commodities may not hold steady trends like stocks. And because they are highly leveraged, can knock out accounts fast.

Stocks are safer to learn. But expenses (brokerage, taxes etc) are high. Cant hold shorts overnight. Commodities are cheaper to trade, but are more risky.

Goldpetal is a safe instrument to study TA. Low margin, can hold shorts overnight, not too volatile.
Good luck.

Heartening to observe youngsters taking an interest in trading.

For brokerage etc., don't let that dis-hearten you, there are many available, SAS (Rs.9/- per trade), zerodha (future/options - Rs.20/- per trade)etc.

The movement of any stock, index or commodity depends on the fuel going into it, so master the study of price(result) and
volume ( effort = fuel), all indicators are derivatives of either price or volume! Select a very few indicators and master them!

Each stock, inicies and commodity exhibits a different behaviour (volatility) so no matter what you trade - you should be in touch
with the behavior of that instrument.

A couple only dances well if " I" am in touch with the partner - same with trading - let the market tell me what to do - NOT SOME
Most important - understand yourself first - for trading you will have to unlearn most of what you have been taught by society!

Successful learning , happy trading - understand yourself and the universe will unfold in its full glory - mere words - experience the
journey! Make some space inside for the universe to enter !
While commodity trading, you must incorporate technical analysis in your trading plan. The analysis begins with looking at the price charts of the particular commodity, easily available online (tradingview is a good one). Understand the basics related to patterns and indicators gradually. Be sure that you select few indicators that help you to confirm the trend, which is important to analyze the trade properly.
