Grain Futures News & Information on Cannon Trading

Grain Futures

Category Archives: Grain Futures

Different grains are traded on the Index, as commodities. Wheat, corn, soybeans, canola and soybean meal are just a few examples. They can be either a short-hedge or a long-hedge. One of the most traded grain futures is corn.

Basically, buying or selling these forms of futures enables the buyers and sellers to lock in prices of the specified grain today for the items that are to be delivered in the future. Therefore, all those who are interested in grains futures must track the performance of the grain on the demand and supply graph as well as its performance on the index. Though it is not tough to understand grains futures, the calculation of risk and returns is something that an average person may leave for an expert to do.

We at Cannon Trading are there to help you to not just understand the markets well, but to act as your personal advisors when it comes to trading futures. And, that’s something that applies for grain futures as well. However, information and awareness come before anything else. That is why, we want you to read through all of these blogs and articles carefully before you decide whether you want to trade grain futures or not.

Hot market of the week is provided by QT Market Center, A Swiss army knife charting package that’s not just for Hedgers, Cooperatives and Farmers alike but also for Spread traders, Swing traders and shorter time frame application for intraday traders with a unique proprietary indicator that can be applied to your specific trading needs.
March Meal
March soymeal resumed its slide where the chart is approaching its third downside PriceCount objective in the $340 area. It would be normal to get a reaction after completing the objective in the form of a near term consolidation or corrective trade, at least. The low percentage fourth count to $231 is not shown here for relevancy but the weekly chart shows significant downside potential remains on a longer term basis.
PriceCounts – Not about where we’ve been , but where we might be going next!
The PriceCount study is a tool that can help to project the distance of a move in price. The counts are not intended to be an ‘exact’ science but rather offer a target area for the four objectives which are based off the first leg of a move with each subsequent count having a smaller percentage of being achieved. It is normal for the chart to react by correcting or consolidating at an objective and then either resuming its move or reversing trend. Best utilized in conjunction with other technical tools, PriceCounts offer one more way to analyze charts and help to manage your positions and risk. Learn more at www.qtchartoftheday.com
Trading in futures, options, securities, derivatives or OTC products entails significant risks which must be understood prior to trading and may not be appropriate for all investors. Past performance of actual trades or strategies is not necessarily indicative of future results.

December Corn traded to within a dime of its fourth downside PriceCount objective and it increasing appears like that was enough to satisfy the bear move. The September contract and the weekly chart each hit their counts. Now, the chart is activated upset objectives and the first Target to 4.94 has been met. If we can sustain the move and get above $5 there’s a second objective just above to aim for in the 5.03 area.

  • Trading Resource of the Week – Trading Commodity Seasonal Patterns

 

When we talk about seasonal patterns in futures, we’re referring to certain conditions and events that repeat annually. Perhaps the most obvious of these is the annual cycle of weather from warm to cold and back to warm. However, the calendar also marks the annual passing of important events, such as the due date for U.S. income taxes every April 15th. Enormous supplies of grain at harvest dwindle throughout the year. Demand for heating oil typically rises as cold weather approaches but subsides as inventory is filled. Monetary liquidity may decline as taxes are paid but rise as the Federal Reserve recirculates funds. Such annual events create yearly cycles in supply and demand.
  • Hot Market of the Week – December WheatCorn

Hot market of the week is provided by QT Market Center, A swiss army knife charting package that’s not just for Hedgers, Cooperatives and Farmers alike but also for Spread traders, Swing traders and shorter time frame application for intraday traders with a unique proprietary indicator that can be applied to your specific trading needs.
December wheatcorn spread is threatening to negate and break down the September key reversal trade that looks to have failed to stabilize the break. At this point, new sustained lows would project a possible run to the third downside PriceCount objective to the 73 cent area.

December soybean oil slowed its rally last months against the fall high and corrected. Now, the chart has recovered and is poised for another challenge of the fall and July highs. If we can break out to the upside with new sustained highs, we have a first upside PriceCount projection to the 68.51 area to aim for.
