Stankevicius MGM: Before you open a multi million dollar futures position what things do you check and what do you do, to make sure you are not going to lose?
Sean Chin MQ: Before I open a trade position, I will first get my team to prepare all information about the subject and ongoing market situation, not just for studying but for myself to plot and draw the graphs. The graphs will always speak the facts. From the facts we justify when to enter the trade and estimate the holding period.
The plotting of graphs is like an art. Every information from fundamental news, company or country forensic studies are just a references to make decisions. The trade involves feeling of human emotions, that’s what majority of market investors do anyways, and that’s what determine the time when to exit the trade. I would say overall process is a combined mix of data, feeling, intuition, experience, and sort of a gut feeling at times.
Stankevicius MGM: What is your favorite hedging strategy in the commodity market?
Sean Chin MQ: I always believe that technical analysis is the most important, as charts and data do not lie but show true historic facts which tend to always repeat themselves over time, and of course doing a forensic study is a must that goes well together with technical analysis.
Stankevicius MGM: Which top 3 commodities are good for long term investment from today to the next 3 years?
Sean Chin MQ: I would recommend to hedge crude oil, gold and silver against G7 currencies or even vice versa. World’s primary commodities have always been the top of the general trading chain while G7 currencies are the top of financial chain. General trading is the largest economy driven business, all the real trade exchange that happen in petroleum market have drastic affect on dollar and other world’s leading currencies. I’d say that commodities and currencies have certain correlations that professional traders should pay attention to.
Stankevicius MGM: Where do you see markets going by the end of 2023 and how do you think markets will react in the first quarter of 2024?
Sean Chin MQ: I believe that the during 4th quarter of this year 2023, the dollar will maintain strength in the market and I’d also add that commodities looking to be good to keep for medium and longer term to strike profits.
Stankevicius MGM: What safety does Olritz Financial Group provide to investors? And what is your client acquisition strategy for emerging markets?
Sean Chin MQ: For investors, we keep a limited downside if facing market risk, currency risk or credit risk, as such black Swan event. But we keep consistency for long term clients’ profit distributions instead of compounding. We are working with creditable institution such as Bloomberg, and top 10 liquidity providers in the world. I believe our solutions are very competitive and quality assured.
