obligations, Sean Kemery makes generous contributions to a variety of philanthropic causes,
including Autism Speaks.
A charitable organization has created an urban farm in Chicago that provides agriculture
training and employment to young adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Using grant monies received from Autism Speaks and other organizations, Growing Solutions
Farms, managed by the Julie and Michael Tracy Family Foundation (JMTF)/Urban Autism
Solutions, turned a once-vacant piece of land on Chicago’s West Side into an acre-sized
vocational and life training ground.
More than 30 young men and women from area schools and JMTF residents were hired as paid
interns on the farm. Not only did the experience allow them to earn money, it also helped them
to develop skills such as following a schedule, performing specific tasks, and asking for help
when needed, which can assist in their transition to adulthood.
It also allowed them to conduct meaningful work by helping to produce more than 5,000
pounds of vegetables. Work on the farm has helped boost their self-confidence, which can
support them as they navigate their lives.
Based in New York, Sean Kemery served as a senior trader at Deutsche Bank, focusing on
commodities such as oil, gold, coffee, and sugar. Sean Kemery maintains a strong interest in the
financial sphere and follows macro-level trends for various commodities.
In making trading decisions, technical analysis is often employed to determine entry and exit
points. Predictive charts are generated to consider factors such as volume and price patterns.
Moving averages (MA) are a key indicator within this and involve finding the average closing
price over a specified period of time. Taking a close look at the MA can often yield insight into
hidden trends and get beyond the random short-term fluctuations that occur with any equity.
Another popular indicator of momentum is the relative strength index (RSI), which sets in place
a 0 to 100 scale that helps determine whether the market is currently oversold or overbought.
Typically, a RSI of 70 and above is seen as an indicator of an overbought situation and under 30
of an oversold situation. That said, traders often set in place their own preferred parameters,
which rely on a complex range of commodity- and market-specific inputs.
Throughout his career in commodity trading, Sean Kemery has served in various capacities for
such firms as Merrill Lynch & Company, AIG Financial Products, and UBS AG. Currently, he leads
the commodity index trading division as a senior director at Deutsche Bank in New York City.
