MINIs are a geared product that are listed on the ASX have known risks are simple flexible and transparent and there is no risk of a margin call You should note that simplicity a regulated market on

stop loss level The Stop Loss Price Is the price at which the MINI ceases to trade and the position is closed out The PDS document details how this is done Case Study Sam owns 1000 CBA shares that he has held since CBA first floated In mid February after CBA had gone Ex Div 1 37 Sam believed that CBA shares would see some further weakness in the following weeks and decided to hedge his position when CBA bounced back to 49 50 Note that when you trade MINIs short you are actually rebated interest on your position in this example we have used a 1 p a rebate After a couple of weeks CBA did in fact trade lower and Sam closed his position at 47 50 after 15 days for a profit The profit on the MINI Short position offset the losses on the 1000 CBA shares so the portfolio position at the end of the 15 days is as follows So Sam got to hold onto his CBA shares avoiding a capital gains tax event and got to keep his dividend as well The Trade If you are of the opinion that this is a Sell in May and go away trading environment then the MINI warrants are an excellent way to participate As shown in the case study MINIs are a great way to hedge current portfolio positions too MINIs can be used

CFDs Friday August 26th 2011 In this article we examine two types of leveraged instruments CFDs and Exchange Traded Options and look at the risk profiles for a simple long strategy Warren Buffet called derivatives financial weapons of mass destruction carrying dangers that while now latent are potentially lethal Except for the dark days of the GFC the recent market volatility has been unprecedented as is illustrated by the VIX chart below The VIX is the CBOE Volatility index which is a measure of fear in the market It is clear that we have not seen this level of fear since the uncertain times when Japan was hit by the earthquake disaster back in March FIGURE 2 CBOE Volatility Index VIX It s often said that the only thing that an investor can control in trading is their risk and this is particularly important when dealing with leveraged trading instruments When traders think of trading with leverage Options and Contracts for Difference CFDs quickly come to mind The recent market volatility has decimated many CFD trading accounts while those who have been trading with defined risk through the use of Options are in a better position Sample Trade David Jones FIGURE 2

step back and examine Gold s prospects We will examine In our previous newsletter we said that Gold would reach 1000 then pull back and trade in the rising channel which has been in place since last November Well Gold did exactly that pulling back with from the US1000 level with a vengeance It paused around the 890 level and is now finding resistance around US950 Underlying Trend Seasonality US Dollar USD US Dollar USD US Dollar USD Underlying Trend Gold has been the best performing asset in this bear market which has been in place since 2007 Gold is still trending up in the medium term see image below Figure1 4 Year Gold Chart Seasonality Gold typically experiences price weakness from March through to July August This seasonality happened last year with a significant extended six month pullback of 25 which did not bottom until September October Figure2 2 Year Gold Chart US Dollar USD The US Dollar s position as the world reserve currency continues to hold In the bigger picture see Figure 3 you can see the USD strength is reasserting itself since bottoming last August Further strength in the USD will weigh on the Gold price in the near term Figure 3 US Dollar Decade Chart Volatility Index VIX Volatility spiked last October and again in November at which time the Gold market commenced its recent bull run You can see from Figure 4 that volatility has now backed off but is still at historical highs If volatility continues to subside the price of gold will remain under pressure Figure 4 Volatility Index Third Time is a Charm Typically markets take at least three attempts to break key support and resistance levels Gold has tested the US1000 level twice in the past two years forming a double top see Figure 2 The Gold bulls need to build momentum again in order to make another assault on that key resistance Gold may be now in the process of forming a head and shoulders pattern see Figure 5 If Gold closes at a price below the recent support that would violate the rising channel which has been in place since October last year Our target prices would be the 200 day moving average around US860 then US800 if there is further weakness Figure5 1 Year Gold Chart Conclusion The easy money has been made by the bulls in gold with the run up to US1000 Gold is due for a pull back having recently formed a double top see Figure 2 If the Gold price breaks down from the key support around US890 then our target prices will be the 200 day moving average
