We are especially proud and excited to present the fifth edition of the Commodity Trader's Almanac. The research put forth in 2010 had proven to be a valuable resource, and armed with this book, we are eagerly awaiting the trading opportunities that lie ahead in 2011. Working together we have further improved this book, creating a better tool for helping traders and investors become educated and prepared. The Almanac provides a monthly overview of pertinent statistics and highlights the seasonal tendencies of each particular futures market. In total, the Almanac is designed to help point traders and investors in the general direction of the normal, natural supply/demand cycle of the market. It highlights specific strategies you may wish to employ, monthly overviews, and historical statistics. Why is a book like this so important? Markets can turn on a dime. A case in point is the market action in 2010; what a difference a year makes. Look where the stock market was in 2009. Most traders and most economists were blindsided by the magnitude of the financial crisis. But by March 2009, the stock market was rebounding powerfully off the lows of the worst bear market since the 1930s; and by summer, the U.S. economy was recovering from the longest and largest contraction since the Great Depression. The Great Recession arguably ended in July 2009 after 20 months. The theme during the first half of 2010 was "Volatility Reigns Supreme." Case in point, by late April, the S&P 500 stock index was up 9.2% year-to-date. Two weeks later, it was down 8.7% from the late April high and negative for the year! One great example is our new Sugar trade featured on page 58. This just goes to show that traders need to be diversified in commodities or stocks that are correlated to the futures markets. Our mantra throughout the Almanac is to show readers how to accomplish this. New government regulations may help give stability, but at a cost in lost business opportunities. This may mute the business environment for 2011 and, perhaps, affect the way the commodity markets behave. We still expect a volatile ride in the stock, currency, commodity, and financial markets for the next few years. As a result of the government bailouts and increased spending, there is a potential risk for a rise in the inflation rate. A round of monetary tightening within the next year would not be surprising. As a result, this could help support the dollar and, at the same time, put pressure on Treasury bond prices.
