Review of July 13 Trading Action

I was stopped out of my Lean Hogs position for a small loss today.

HE Lean Hogs

Trade: Short 1 contract of August Lean Hogs
Entry Price: $0.7780
Exit Price: $0.8825
Trade Grade: 2/5

Trade Comment: At this stage it looks as though the Stop was a fraction too tight.

Daily Comment: Hogs opened higher today taking out my Stop before reversing to finish the day lower. I will wait for further price weakness and a break of the 61.8% retracement of the recent uptrend before attempting to re-enter.

Below are my comments on the opportunities Im watching based on the days price action.

HG Copper

Copper was higher again today surpassing the 61.8% retracement of the recent range. Price finished off the highs posting a candle with an upper shadow. After the break in the overnight session I entered a buy order below the market for the day session but my order was not triggered.

ZS Soybeans

Soybeans rallied up to the 61.8% retracement of the corrective move today and closed back above the 40 SMA. If prices can surpass the 61.8% retracement level I may look to enter a Long position.

No trades today.

Below are my comments on the opportunities Im watching based on the days price action.

HE Lean Hogs

Daily Comment: Hogs traded in a small range today both higher and lower but finished the day slightly lower. Prices are still holding above the 61.8% retracement of the recent range.

Week in Review - 11 - 15 July


One small anticipatory trade in Lean Hogs this week which was quickly stopped out for a loss.

The opportunities I am currently watching are below.

ZS Soybeans

New crop Soybeans rallied back up to the 61.8% retracement of the corrective range early in the week before reversing sharply to finish the week practically unchanged.

HE Lean Hogs

Hogs started the week lower before rallying back up towards the falling 200 SMA in the middle week and then turned lower again to finish the week down at the 61.8% retracement of the recent range.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


KC Coffee

Coffee rallied up to the 161.8% extension of the recent range early in the week but struggled to hold this level to finish the week.

CT Cotton

Cotton exploded higher this week quickly surpassing both the 161.8% and 261.8% extensions of the recent range before pausing at the 75 level.

SB Sugar

Sugar continued to correct this week trading down towards the 40 SMA. Sugar might be a good buy at this level.

GC Gold

Gold paused at the 161.8% extension level at the start of the week correcting back down to the 20 SMA.

HG Copper

Copper broke strongly through the 200 SMA at the start of the week and broke through the top of the wedge before pausing. If prices can exceed the March highs Copper will look very bullish.

CL Crude Oil

Oil traded in a small range this week between the 100 and 200 SMAs. Prices are now in between the rising 100 SMA and the falling short term moving averages. I suspect that a break above or below one of these moving averages will provide clues to the next move for Oil.

NG Natural Gas

Natural Gas continued lower this week but was well supported at the 2.70 level. The 40 SMA is breaking through the 200 SMA and may provide a good level to enter the long side when prices first intersect with the 40 SMA.

DX US Dollar Index

The US Dollar was lower early in the week but finish the week strongly to close practically unchanged. Prices are still be held up at the 200 SMA and break of this level may provide an entry opportunity on the long side.
