What didn't just move 10%? Game on Commodities

Bookmark and Share

Good Afternoon,

So many things seem to have changed even from yesterday. Budget deadline less than 10 days away.

China as I have posited since they bought cattle fits in with my Asian nations doing deals with Trump (trade deficit help) when he was over there. It appears this may be bigger than I expected but the time for trading markets really,

is right here right now

(1999 internet commercial that actually made day-traders buy when it was aired).

Bonds- alert for major turn? Chaos program lurking around? this is or could be a big turn. Spreads in everything are pressing extrmes, CL HO NGE, W C CC, email me if you like vertical small risk long shots.

Hogs down 13% 11days, and then straight up after blue diamond posted at the bottom green 59.26, a tick off low print. Special situation was additional 3 buy levels a very rare hi-impact chart setup but this is all high frequency traders whipping you guys around, in my opinion. Notice T Notes yesterday had a powerful apex 125.05 as a suggested short along with bonds..

I think this is game on China buying beans, meal, cattle and hogs was it beginning of month? Need a bull story? How about a despised trade?) CL $29, SN 907,NG last week, Wheat live? Whats not today? This is game on to me today. Get this going now. Dislocations of 20% anytime, 10% is now.

Anything in this game. Working Open order thought out early w clients remind us why we want to commit to commodities specific levels 1st time down. Yes Im serious, 3 cent stops max so we take a look again or your investing. Get good extremes #s.

Crude oil up here if you need an idea for the long term. NatGas hit an OLB last week by low, actually it missed by a fraction but up 10% in a week as was advertised to long hedgers.

These low risk high reward trades are in your products now matter which ones. Some take more time. Silver on a big break anyone? Open Orders need to stand in well thought out ahead of time planning, and appropriate risk stops but in general many market turns have occurred of about top like in Nasd. These are good trading markets if you have the right levels and someone to put in in perspective, or percent terms in the case of stocks.

Dow was up $120 and NASD was down 135 handles or 3%. You need to be long something else if shorting stocks. These are extremes.

I cant cover every market but will be happy to entertain a call if you need some color.

I still stand by wheat and corn are into my long term buys but only my levels to keep it tight. SN $9.07 stood as low, BOZ 32.32 all my olives. Wheat KC around this past week warrants exposure. I see bullish fundamental news by May, a few things. Buying wheat is my famous despised trade.

Bit coin has gone up three entire bean crops in last few weeks. I say get access to this type of exposure where when we dont get stopped out,

Trades can turn into monster winners of 10% in a week like NGE. 2.91 was OLB, near miss.

This cycle has bottomed.

Lunney and I put a trade out to sell bonds yesterday at that powerful apex, only one took it and bonds were down 1 points today, $1,500 move off top, I had 2 ticks under high as apex. What more do you need? Cattle and hog ranchers that took my OLB buys, saw a 10% rally in less than two weeks.

Why not want to team up with WalshTrading.? Nat gas up 10% from last weeks buy nat gas OLB spec? Thats where you hedge long if you use it. Heating oil by the way exact opposite if that is your product. Dont hedge long up here.

I am doing a webinar today going into current situations. Please signup or forward this to someone that might find this higher math pattern recognition when they happen. Anyone trade butter? Take a look. Lumber did hit and surpass the major OLS 442, once under OLS went limit a few days.Nasd100 percent met

If I can interest you in that, Im here as a X-floor trader broker that traded own money for over 30 years. I supply the trade with little risk stops and let the winners ride. I will ask you your stop level. You either take it like trade ideas, or take a pass.

Best Always.
