Wheat- ok now we are getting a hang on why at olive extreme's we might not want to use overnight stops due to HFT punks low-balling. KWN $4.17lay it on me. It's perfect because a lot of you wanted to throw in the towel and liq long wheat. This is a very decent level to buy long in my opinion.

Hogs- Is the top in? Yesterday was abuzz all the screaming bullish news art.s, FT etc.

This is when you fade it. Who is left to buy? Besides Chinese?

A lot of emotion buying probably after news? Hogs closed limit down with the fronts as suggested getting hammered against Feb which also hit an extreme Olive sell over 90.

Buy Puts? 45z?. Maybe you really need an idea broker instead of the course your currently on?

On that other 1400-ish break someone big blew 1000 longs on lows. Pay attention as the market goes to the extreme's that blow-out the greatest number of traders. That is how I describe my product, methodology, mute news and trade price action.

Everybody, me anyways has to have sell stops before we go limit smackers. That is where the sloop is. Sell it as it goes limit and collect next days momentum. Caution is advised for the clueless as selling the wrong month can be devastating to bottom line, enough.

How much is 50,000 hog longs * say 1000 points down?

Only $200million. I think hogs risk was that was top 1st time up front months. Learn trading lingo, jeepers. How does a voice file on your market with levels and ideas, beware of inflections. Hogs are a trading market, 9741 but must use stops. Expect unexpected.

Meal- 306.20-$307.00is big pivotal area. Air below. BO- no interest. Oilshare anyone? I have those products, pro levels and lines. It's slow so give me a jingle. Let me put a chart in front of you if your serious about finding a broker. One that does the homework, for you.

KC Wheat Buy

Rule maybe- when you have your 1st drawdown after a 100% increase in capital, fast?

No matter what the fake hate news says,

Cash in and turn it into real money.

LBK 309-ish has few. Dollar has ols above, coffee perks.

If I did not cover what you need then let's talk turkey. I'm pretty sure I have the chart (levels) you need.

Use a risk stop.

How much has LHM Q lost to Feb? Folks, that is where the trade ideas have been last few weeks as I suggested. Did I say rip your face-off spreads?

Expect Unexpected and take advantage when other market participants are getting blown out of the water at extreme swing trade conditions.

As Summer heads to chaos email if you have any interest moving here to HighGround with me or just for the levels. Pro's.

FC August FEEDERS- perspective is purpose. Call if you want to learn to chart like A Pro.

FCQ Wall of Cattle food for thought
