Corn Prices Hit A 5 Week High

Corn Prices Hit A 5 Week High

Corn Futures—Corn futures in the March contract is trading higher for the 3rd consecutive session up another $0.06 at 3.86 a bushel or 1.51% hitting a 5 week high breaking out to the upside in my opinion. I will be recommending a bullish position if prices close above 3.85 while then placing the stop-loss at the contract low which was hit on September 9th at 3.65 as the risk would be $1,000 per contract plus slippage and commission as the chart structure is outstanding due to the low volatility that we have experienced over the last several months.

Corn prices are now trading above their 20 day moving average but slightly below their 100 day which stands at major resistance at 3.91 as the USMCA trade agreement will be passed this week as that is a very bullish fundamental factor coupled with the fact that the Chinese trade agreement has been written in stone as I think the bottom has occurred in the grain market as these are very bullish factors for corn prices which still historically speaking are depressed.

The large money managed funds are heavily short corn while adding another 30,000 contracts last week as they believe lower prices are ahead, however I disagree with that situation so play this to the upside as the risk/reward is in your favor.

TREND: HIGHER–MIXED 

CHART STRUCTURE: EXCELLENT

VOLATILITY: INCREASING
