5. Commodities traded

Try and look for systems that trade long term and focus on trending markets such as:

Stock indices

Bonds

Currencies

Energies

These markets tend to be the best for technical trading and are likely to produce the best results.

6. Diversified or individual commodities?

This is really a matter of choice. If you trade an individual commodity your reward may be higher but so to is your risk. A diversified portfolio may have less profit potential but the diversification should reduce risk.

It’s a matter for each trader to decide, but diversified systems tend to perform better than ones that focus on a single commodity and have less downside volatility.
