The LCM – LCG attracted my attention.

This spread is recommended by MRCI from end of December until middle of January.

The spread worked for 13 of the most recent 15 years, shows a drawdown of more than $200 for only three years, and only shows one drawdown which is higher as the average profit.

Above all, the spread closed at -11.2 yesterday after recovering from its lowest value this year -12.25 . The lowest entry value since 2002 was 11.25 in 2004.

I intend to by this spread today.

Yes, it is a bear spread. Although in the meats contracts move more individually than in many other commodities.

I do not know when you entered the LCJ-LCG. But one difference might be that I entered the LCM-LCG spread close to the lowest value it had in the most recent 15 years. The other difference might be that the spread worked very reliably for my entry date.

But of course - the spread might move further downwards. I will not be very patient, and use a close stop. I also already placed limit orders to take profit at various levels.

Best regards, Myrrdin

There are important reports for cattle and hogs tomorrow after the close.

The monthly Cattle on Feed-Report as well as the quarterly Hogs and Pigs Report can be market movers.

Just read that these reports will be released at 11 am (Chicago Time) or 18.00 (Central European Time). Whereas usually the release is after the close, this time trading will be open for 1 1/4 more hours.

Obviously the CME wants to avoid a release of these reports after the close, as the next trading day will show very low volume due to Chrimas.

I am still holding the KWH-WH spread. Nothing regarding the fundamentals has changed significantly. The spread receives support from seasonals at least until end of January

January 12th the next important USDA report on grains and beans will be published. The January report is well known for surprizes.

Best regards, Myrrdin

The spread has moved up nicely - unfortunately without me ...

It closed at 13 on Wedenesday (day before USDA report), and closed at 23 on Friday.

I like the CK-WK at this time of the year. According to MRCI data, the trade should work until end of February.

A problem is that this spread already has run quite far. Not often did this spread move significantly below 50. But there are several examples in recent years (2011, 2012, 2013).

Best regards, Myrrdin
