As seen on Bloomberg, Refinitiv (Thomson Reuters), Factset, Interactive Brokers, and Inside Futures, Tradable Patterns’ Today’s Top 3 Trades provides technical analysis on 3 CME/ICE commodity/index futures or spot FX markets (with coverage for 2 markets from a designated asset class(es) for each weekday as seen in the Watchlist), plus the top trade idea for the day from any asset class. All 3 markets covered are selected based on their likelihood to exhibit trend reversal or continuation during the week that begins on the day of coverage, based on technical analysis and news flow. For instance, Monday coverage is on 2 Agris (and potentially 1 Index), while Tuesdays are devoted to 2 Indices (and potentially 1 Soft). For less experienced traders, tutorials and workshops are offered online and throughout Southeast Asia.
