Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 3, 2011
Top commodities trading expert, Andy Hecht, yesterday released his in-depth analysis and wrap up of commodities activities in the first quarter of 2011.
His report covers all the major commodity sectors: precious metals, energy, grains, meats, and base metals. Within each sector, Hecht details specific commodities, including silver, gold, platinum and palladium, oil, natural gas, wheat, soybeans, corn, cotton, cocoa, sugar, coffee, frozen orange juice, live cattle and lean hog, copper, aluminum, nickel, zinc, lead and tin.
"Bottom line," Hecht says, "The first quarter saw a continuation of strong commodity prices across all sectors. It's been a thrilling quarter."
Hecht rounded off his analysis with a Q2 forecast for each of the 21 commodities he wrapped up, warning of downside risk in sugar, coffee, and copper (in the very short term).
He also discusses the effects of activity in the U.S. dollar index, U.S. benchmark 30-year bonds, and the Dow Jones have had, and will have, on commodities.
"These bull markets can be very volatile so expect some big moves during the second quarter and the balance of 2011," he says. "Remember -- big volatility always equals big opportunities."
