Hogs- Who Is In Your CockPit

Bookmark and Share

Speculators and gun slinger's,

The time to Swing is upon US, Flip short LHG? Call for Mkt Colo. WN 444 has ring to it. Flip Short LHG was play today 9050

Hogs spreads have gone nutzo as suggested. Feb LHG leader, strongest of the pack but

has Sells, OLS's above here to book those profits, flip short hogs? Oh My. Look for 400 point break to flip long. Longs are abundant in Farmerville in general.

Ag option client up north cinfirmed. Getting crowded? Fronts anyway. All changes bullish if new highs, except a few sell months in back months. Ask your broker what he has. And come on, I make zip when you use other entry. A little respect for the hours (530am nicest chart drop)

Beware Hogs in general. Scale down buys s/b working. Your bullish right?

I know we're going to $1.50. (We are) but I look for vertical price action for BIG BOYS.

I try to think like some money managers with my trendlines, tls already. See NASDOG glossary.

So sell hogs, my month, charts are clear, 55c stop in most cases but I have had .27c stops

Feeders- if farmers all hedged due to (banker extortion?)?

Look out higher now. Buying on run strategy has been explained to clients. Feeders closed top tick wed s. I think we can explode higher as I do NOT HAVE ANY SELL #'s. What is next level up? Give me a jingle if your looking for a broker and rip your face-off trader that tries to suit my charts extreme expertise with your style.


Two new shooter's in meats came in just in nick of time to play FCQ 159.80 OLS down to flip 153.81 cover short flip long algo play of mine. I want to show a great trade a client made. My point is these are real money moves if you have the dough to plunk,

I have a charting extreme, falling knife, dangerous system that is hitting 5-10% moves which is what I continue to pound table will continue. Tudor said what?


Take my course. Throw me, AND YOURSELF a bone and learn about trading. Farmers are in the field 24/7 so look for some big moves.

Wheat, cannonball $4.17buy kwn I think,

Coffee- only play at the levels on the charts in all back months.

That is where they hide value (LHG!) Buy back months my levels 200 stop max, less really. That's over a 2% stop. ! !

Too much to me but point made. Ask.

Hog Trading Top Feb9050

Bonds held a green on home office chart yesterday, now back over other green

CZ- 384.5 & $ 3.835

You need a level and have any serious attitude about learning chart pattern at extremes ( 15 diamonds up! in ?? Stock).

Cotton early had 3 diamonds before $2.50one day break. One bought but scalped. Two units whole different money managed trade in my opinion. Lightning didn't strike twice.

Sell it with new high buy stop only thing I see here. If bearish, tight stop and forget. Or get another futures account with me. Are you trading meats? Thats my action. F orget grains, scale big spike down tho.

Ccoa live but 2nd time rules apply. Students self directed? Study this next few months for next year maybe. Trading is expensive learning on your own.

As A Pro Trader these are the texts I get. (Lunney did guest up at HighGround, he is bearish down to 280 or 270. I don't cover. No client interest. If you need levels or coverage, stay in own joint.

Make me an offer.

So feeders can fly higher.

Right Here Right Now. 159.80 over if this is an olive fail.

Lunney- Copper got kicked in the teeth last night

Always use stops so you can control your risk. If you cant get that close. You trade blindly.

Discipline is only rule for new traders. Think like a trader and lose your opinions.

Take profits.

Bulls take a little

Bears take a little

And the Pigs get


Shit was term I learned back in the 70's. The same period I think we are in now.

Volatile but shut up and get back in the Pit.
