Corn - under $350.1/4 spanked almost 2 cents under and like clockwork shot out of there for a 2% return as this in value or investment type trade
I like finished products here.
When will fundamentalists realize game meaningless if looking to make money. I provide clients with different story coming from trading floor and seeing this business decades. Know your players. Bears out in force last week right before rug pulled again.
If looking to scale 200 lots, inflation theme, call. You may have missed wrll placed falling knife lows.

Wheat-ditto, May and Mch hit long term. Notice how these rocket out of here.

Meal- look higher to sell. OLS hit in overnight along with bonds 154.14, could be good ones, Notes weaker and at apex.

Beanoil-sleeper and volatile. OSZ hit TL support this am.
Brent crude ! I dont cover but feels interesting top-ish?
Crude- levels hit .35c sloppy. Scalp levels aggressively, w stops on $13k rally. Sell hedge now or possibly lower later.
LUMBER- this top may play like hogs and rice today. You may get one more chance.

Stocks- trade the olive lines or extremes and forget winners.
Bonds-high alert to beware of off 150.10 OLB now inverse?
Get a group and I will come out and explain high frequency front-running, patterns, extremes and the nasty olive. You could have it and still not make cents, of it.

Think like a skeptical trader and always use a tight stop. I believe in the lines and how they must trigger buying bulge patterns. How else would they quantify it?
Thats what your up against and that is your slippage. One delayed human emotion delay and your playing their game.

I think I can help keep you out of some of that trouble. It happens fast. I know, spent 20+ reasearch.

I can give you cattle buys on this report with .50c risk say 60% of time when they are about to touch, trigger with my objective to catch vertical swan dives like wheat and corn last week that moved up 2% immediately late last week.
My levels when panic & chaos algorithms (list of conditions programed) push it down to specific levels. If you miss it I have another strategy.
I think these rules are a combination of what different players use.
Forget fundamentals but use mathematical simple rules w risk stops. Charts on site.
When markets go vertical,
You need an olive line.
Or find a Broker with good out-of-favor
trade ideas.
How else do you think you make money? Consensus?
6-8 week one way, 10%+, run you over vertical price swings, BOZ 32.32-35.36 was an olive cha-cha.

Happy Thanksgiving
