Sysot, you might take a look at Joe Ross's spread newsletter. (I do not have any real time experience with it.)

Beans & Wheat

I recently started to day trade these two between 10:30-14:00 ET. With just a couple of contracts on each. earning $1000/day is often doable.

The trades with trends can be fast and very profitable. Advise against tickphukking (scalping).

not trading them yet... still studing and researching it... but I did noticed that scalping might of not have been the way to go... so I am looking at options too.. and trying to stick to the original intent: position trading.

Wheat & Beans

Fairly typical price action in these markets.

To those who complain that things are "slow," look for other opportunities and think out of your comfort zone. The markets are your oysters ready for catching, shucking and eating.

Slow day?

Almost every trader I spoke with today said it didn't pay to trade during the holiday season. No volume, no volatility, no participants, no this, and no that. While they bitched, some banked.

Wheat and Beans continue to be money makers despite a complete lack of knowledge on my part of the fundamentals. Ignorance is bliss as the saying goes.

IMO, I made more money scalping TF when I was ignorant as to all the rules.. I was just using OBV and price, nothing more..... only issue with ignorance, once you have lost it, it is hard to regain

What do you mean by spread?

Like someone before posted, start with corn and move onto beans. Soybeans can be voliate and you can loose alot of money quick, lol i know from experience! Also the most active months are the summers months. Alot of traders like to daytrade grains during the summer when the S&P is dead. I remember John Carter saying he is always more profitable daytrading grains than the S&P. But just about all months there is good volume, except for the holiday season like someone mentioned. Also, I remember someone in a webinar saying July 4th weekend you should keep an eye on, because thats when it starts to really move and will take off one way or another.

There is more capital flowing into commodities than any other asset class. In fact the CRB Index is trading at historical highs. Consequently grains are trading at price levels and at an implied volatility that are usually reserved for the summer months.Thus, there is no doubt they are in play or they are moving around. However, please keep in mind that even though the open interest and price movement is there, the liquidity may not be there, or at least may not be what you are used to, with the more heavily traded futures contracts.

To put in perspective the 5 day average volume for ES, ZN, ZC and ZS are as follows:

E-minis - 2,000,000
10 Year Notes - 1.200,000

Corn - 143,000
Soybeans - 100,000

Capital may be flowing into the commodity sector, and grains in particular, but trading volume and liquidity are still considerably greater in the ES and ZN.
