COFFEE: As we mentioned last week there was an excellent chance that Coffee could reverse to an uptrend. Well indeed as of the close Friday last (November 1) December Coffee did indeed reverse from the long term downtrend to an uptrend. So as of now according to the LAWG 647 Model what do we know?

We know that Coffee is in an uptrend and needs a close this Friday (November 8) at or below $89.05 to reverse back to bearish. While possible. I suggest not likely. Looking forward over the next several weeks it appears to me that it will be equally difficult for Coffee to reverse to bearish. We know that as of Friday last the Positive Indicator had exceeded the first standard deviation of the 218 week average. As of this writing the Positive Indicator is just short to reaching the second standard deviation of the 218 week average. Over the past 218 weeks the Positive Indicator has reached the second standard deviation eight times and exceeded it six times, but as we know past performance is not indicative of future results.

What to do? I am suggesting one look for values to get long but as Warren Buffet once said it isnt where you sell something it is where you bought it that matters. Looking at the Coffee market it appears there is a bunching of technical support levels between $102.00 and $105.00. If you are looking to get long Coffee assess your risk tolerance and pick your poison and use stop loss orders for protection.
