What’s Up, What’s Down: Spotlight on Softs
Looking ahead to Tuesday by reflecting back on Monday’s trading
Futures and options trading is speculative in nature and involves substantial risk of loss. Futures and options trading is not suitable for all investors
THE SO-CALLED “SOFTS” LOOKING QUITE SOFT
LUMBER: Lumber followed through lower again or its fifth session in a row now below most of its support but act the lower end acting like its will test contract lows at this time. Of course lumber has been in a long-term downtrend dating back to the beginning of the year but I’m still on the sidelines looking for a new sell signal.
COCOA: Cocoa made another new CONTRACT LOW AND CLOSE looking extremely bearish overall falling since February. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
SUGAR: Sugar settled higher this time but means very little technically since its been falling starting back in August. Now its nearest resistance starts above 2400. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
