Last Friday I was fortunate to be the guest of @Liz Claman and @David Asman on Fox Business News after the bell segment. I really appreciate the chance to be on those panels. I have been a frequent guest from the floor of the CME over the past couple of years. This was the first time I was able to go to NYC and visit. While I was on the panel, I mentioned that the best strategy for long term investor who is long the stock indexes, especially via the Spider or Diamonds, that there was a strategy I liked when the market “looked” toppy.

Spot month corn, CK has broken well below the support line in the wedge formation. Technicians will look at this formation from a bearish perspective.

I’ll put the Dow chart below first. You can see that we might drop back down into “the box” between 18,000 and 17,000. Remember, at 18270, 5% is 913 points. So we might very well continue to “explore the space” in that 913 points. Hopefully that puts 300 points in perspective. Today’s low is […]

Corn posted its high in the overnight market and then trended lower all day, despite a brief 3 cent bounce into the close. No new fundamental news hit the grain market today as we continue to await the USDA on Tuesday.
