The day before I made comment in hogs 5050 either way next 1,000 point move. Bingo that 1st high was one of my pivots as it was only # within miles day a new client wanted to buy buy buy at the high.

I said lets buy half, w stop.

Stopped out 150 and we broke 1000ish. Yest had weekly also,

Back month OLS. (written this am on train) High today was old high areacited here. Wide trading ranges.

Spreads will get wild going forward. Study your free charts and get some ideas. Throw in premium data.

Or get a service to trade specific areas like Friday settlement px, spx.

So we went limit but want to buy the mofu sharply lower right?

Don't get weak-kneed now before the final firework shooting star biggest Hog Bull Ever.

400 lower for a bounce maybe limit up, OR, we stay down here one more day.

Its an idea to buy hogs and look for 400 or more swing up.

Watch back months. Are they all cheap if we feed China for next year? Are the Vietnam Banks here to buy pork? Secure food needs important. Very!

FEB HOGS- lets see if my levels hold. Aug doen 400 Feb down ?,.50c or up?

Does your other account have those kind of ideas laid out ahead of time? Now for traders if your not thinking this way were you can sell TLs and when we sell the high on a scale up FC we also need to work buy stop .25c over to flip back another unit long. Get it?

Algos tend to buy over a sell # that works because my data is high quality. Algos use Math formulas and so should you with me.

In my opinion.

Buy the levels. The good charts I send only to paying students if you will. Two farmers now want to buy cotton crop back on break. I love it. I can do that for clients of any stripe.

Levels are only levels on my charts. Some lines are from old bull mkts because I offer a high-quality data laced condition DNA that slaps a diamond when market storms for extreme's where they blow out the guys that never use stops because they know it all.

(Never directed to you specifically, lose the thin skin and get back in the game).

Cotton green support, more below folks so get open order bids working. This happens parabolically fast in nanoseconds.

NOT WHEN YOUR PLANTING. (email me to get on the list)

(They have you guys figured out)

Fake Beef- WSJ art. Lesson, some traders read wsj after market to not be influenced in heat of moment. One of you are wired pretty good news wise.

When hogs hit network news will be time to hedge short, later.

Wheat-"we got to pray' today". Rapper.

Sell soybeans buy KCN ratio? I do have levels for that player on this huge confounding rally. -.45c-ish off mem, see chart.

A China deal has risk. If and on event. A measuring point for those looking for a freebie. Know what do you do with it? Think.

Or learn?

Whats an olive worth? Gold chugging off 1294-96 and 1287 ish. 1312 last.

COFFEE- We live if bottom picking. I have an olive sell in MILK live. 15.95 May

Cocoa has sell levels live. OLS.

RBOB unleaded. Man how much is this up off bottom? I paid $1.86Once.

Is gas a buck higherish?

My Dow student is off an hour chart. Was that about two months? Pro traders learn fast.

He uses steroid Trading Technology charts execution.

You dont need that imo. Point is he lost his old method after talking to me daily, a few months because he sees how it reveals way smaller risk trades. 5 ticks with him-ish. Yesterday anyway because I told him my Rules and he likes them. I stuffed him once on 200 Dow. Lifetime ago?

Big percentage moves are the new normal. I see no way out now.

Inflation idea bets now for sale. NASD up 20%. What is date today?

These are escape values in the mkt. US STOCKS- stand high alert with bearish eye if a few things happen right here right now.

-Meats Polar Bomb

Get a broker that has access for you, the client and when you need an idea from someone you fast learn, you can trust for solid trading advise. Sold sold sold.

Look for levels where you can scoop up 20 with small stops or avg at all my levels this time down. Expect the unexpected but if you're bullish? Time of essence.
If you buy 4 then maybe stop on half but you need to stay long lower when bids get hit fast mkt down.

Stay long my 1st bar of panic selling for some. Maybe we hear panic sell the last of the dead hogs flooding the futures market? Who knows?

Who cares .

We trade price risk.
Like Jimmy Rogers said

Buy low sell high.

Stocks could, turn ugly with not, too much of a break, my opinion.

Uber IPO may hang in here to get this deal done. Short UBER? Idea consultations avail.

Fang or Individual Chart level education service? Olive extremes everywhere?

You do not think this is random.

Do you?

Always use stops to stop your risk is strongest free advise I have for you.

If you don't have a clue as to trading levels?

I offer to be your other futures broker.
If you swing a good clip and will risk .25c stop in meats. I have some levels for you.

They either hold

Or flip fold.

Best of Trading,
