BEARISH OPINIONS ABOUND FOR THE “SOFTS” FUTURES CONTRACTS
SUGAR: Sugar settled lower again with its double top at 2425 still in place looking very bearish overall in a downtrend since August. Sugar’s nearest resistance starts above 2400 with the 2500 area right in the middle. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
COTTON: Cotton closed sharply lower making lowest lowest low and close since December 2010. Now there is good resistance above 9000 and much more from 9500 to 10500 and very little support underneath making making today’s settlement below 9000 very bearish in my opinion. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
COFFEE: Coffee also settled sharply lower with its worst low and close since last December. Also, closing below 225 looks very bad if you’re a bull. Also, coffee has been in a down-trend since the beginning of September on the daily chart and May on the weekly one. A close over 240(only once since Oct. 24th) first and confirmed by a close over 250 is what’s needed to turn this market around at this time in my opinion. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
