This is my first post since the total destruction of my trading account courtesy of naked Gold puts explosion of a couple of years back :-(
I have been reading this threat from the start, and am currently at post 86. Good stuff-can't believe it's still going!
I'm thinking about getting back into option selling (with a few changes from the last time :-) and was thinking about just concentrating on the grains (specifically corn) to start with. My long-term goal is to learn one market at a time and become good at that, then slowly adding more markets until I can talk about them like Ron99 and the rest of you players do.
I want to start reading fundamental reports and get knowledgable about what is causing the longer-term trends. I know The Hightower Report has been mentioned here, although I know it talks about more than just grains. Is it worth the money? How about the USDA reports like WASDE? Good or a waste of time (40 pages!)? Any other reports y'all can think of that might help me become knowledagble in the corn/grains?
Currently reading Cordier's book, listening to a book on the grains business while driving, and reading your posts. I know this can be done for the long-term, since you all can't be just lucky over so many years :-) so I am in this for the long haul (retirement), and ready to study...
You can get Hightower, Wyckoff, Gramza and Dow Jones opinion/news for free from OX. Just open an account and I don't think you even have to put any money in it. My current OX account has 11 cents in it.
USDA data is good. USDA forecasts are poor.
If you are doing grains the main thing you will need to watch is weather across the globe. That makes trading grains volatile because weather is unpredictable.
One seasonal in grains I play is price dropping in Sep and rising in Oct.
PS I got nailed on that Sep 2011 Gold drop too. It was so unpredictable.
