Advantages of Metal Futures vs. Metal Stocks
Oct 12, 2005
With Nick Kalivas
The profit outlooks for many metals companies are influenced by fundamental factors which are tradable and realized in the futures market. Gold, silver, aluminum and copper prices influence the metals companies traded in the equity market. So why not just trade metal futures directly? Explore the benefits of trading metal futures with Nick Kalivas, Vice President, Financial Research and Senior Equity Analyst with Refco Global Research. Futures offer a direct exposure to underlying macroeconomic themes, you can go long or short with ease, and company-specific events that affect cash stock prices don't matter when trading futures. There are also potential tax advantages to trading futures. Nick discusses reasons why the underlying commodity price direction may not parallel the share price of metals companies such as Newmont Mining or Alcoa, and why he thinks you should consider trading your thoughts on the direction of metals prices using futures markets instead of equities.
