Wednesday commodity market rankings - 10/11/17, By Brad King

In the last week we have had our opportunities to rotate into a few new markets. I now prefer the Canadian dollar over the British Pound, have recommended selling coffee and sugar, while adding risk to long heating oil positions.

I will update rankings again next week here. Due to recent low volatility price movement, there is not much needed in the way of adjustments today. If you have been riding the Dow Jones, roll up your calls.
