Ilan: What are your views on Intraday vs End-of-day trading.

John: Like everything it's about the market environment. We have been in a market where the Dow Jones traded in it's most compressed average true range since 1905 so the idea of running an end of day strategy and playing for big moves hasn't materialized like it has in the past.

2. Hot Market Report: Corn Not so Hot....

By Mark O'Brien, Senior Broker

corn futures; Typically, when someone describes a market’s price movement as “hot,” the market they’re referencing is moving up in price, often sharply and often to values not seen in weeks or months. This week’s hot market looks at corn, which is no where near exhibiting these price characteristics. Its Dec. contract has been trading range-bound for two months and is currently sitting at its lowest price since the beginning of this specific contract month’s inception three years ago, near $3.42/bushel. With the news from the U.S.D.A.’s Nov. 9 Supply/Demand report that this year’s corn crop yield is forecast to hit 14.6 billion bushels, this will be the highest yield on record for the United States. More so, this year’s harvest has yet to be completed and experts are already forecasting that January’s Supply/Demand report will revise that number higher, given the late-season’s favorable growing/weather conditions. Multi-month and multi-year highs and lows can be tricky to trade if you’re apt to go with the trend because of the lack of context. Where is the next price target? This is indeed a cat-and-mouse game worthy of monitoring. Have a great weekend everybody and even a better trading week ahead.
