I do a lot of commodity spread trading. Which commodities are you trading ?

I do not know of any course.

Best regards, Myrrdin

I'm a newbie on futures commodities spread trading... I saw the course from tradeandfinance.eu and they use the seasonalgo platform but I don't know if it works longterm with their technical analysis as I'm not a fan of technicals like double top or bottom. And the cost of courses is something like 900$ each (for 2 courses)... I don't found a better and cheaper place to learn.

Regards

You are new to spread trading. Are you experienced in trading of outright futures ?

If they use the seasonalgo platform it looks like you are interested in seasonal spread trading. Is this what you are looking for ?

I don't have experience in trading outright futures... and yes, I'm looking for only the seasonal spread trading but I can't find any information about how to leg a spread and how to trade seasonal futures spread by adjusting the trading seasonal window and how to use the seasonalgo (I found only courses and weekly paid subscriptions on their site tradeandfinance.eu about this but I don't like that they use technicals at the end for confirmation, from an opinion from internet the technical analysis has no scientific value).

If you have no experience in trading, I would strongly recommend to begin with reading some relevant books. You can also have a look at the thread "Seasonal Trades" in this forum in the Commodities Section.

The second step would be to paper trade at least for some months.

MRCI offers some support to learn seasonal trading. They are probably the company with the most experience in teaching seasonal trading. I use their seasonal charts sucessfully for many years.

And: Be critical about what you read in the internet. I trade based mainly on fundamentals, but I would not say technical analysis is worthless.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Thank you for your suggestion but as I told before, I'm not a fan of any traditional technical analysis unless it's a quant analysis for seasonal trading and if a trader answered before here that I can check the Seasonal Traders thread here, so I found there that the only objective service is from a quant from seasonax.com but it's for Bloomberg institutional traders which cost 24.000$ the annual membership only the platform. So the trading is not for me. The only choice remain the regular job.
