In the next feature Mr. Wyckoff address cycles and seasonality in futures trading, specifically seasonality in agricultural markets. He emphasizes that while seasonality or cycles alone are not solid trading systems, he believes they are good tools for your futures trading toolbox.
The commodities trading e-book goes on to comment on the use of Fibonacci percentage "retracement" levels when determining support and resistance on futures trading charts. He continues to mention the "Golden Ratio" in this sytem of futures trading analysis.
The e-book continues on to a feature about market noise and how he believes seasoned futures traders ignore it. He explains how he has come to believe that the day-to-day market noise is not of much use to most futures traders, and they should keep in mind the overall trend of the market.
The next section of the commodities trading e-book hosts a section for less-experienced futures traders in which he covers the types of market orders, including stops.
