Trend Followers may be interested in Orange Juice

Recommended Posts

Albeit speculative, trend followers, may be interested in watching Orange Juice in the month of October 2017.

 

A juice (with fresh fruit of course) a day keeps the doctor away!

One of the best shorting opportunities over the past 12 months has been Orange Juice yet no one within the IG Community seems to be discussing it. 

I am going to include the 'daily' chart below for you all to see. For Trend Followers it does not matter whether the price is trending upwards or downwards. It is about trying to profit from the price movement.

Orange Juice is down over 1082 points at the time of writing. It is already in a strong bearish downtrend as the 'daily' will nicely highlights.

This is interesting.

My interpretation of the COT data would suggest a continuation of this downward trend, as would a few technical indicators. 

I'm not too sure about the markets seasonal patterns or fundamentals, but after 5 minutes on Google found the following from a February US Department of Agriculture Citrus markets report;

Global orange production for 2018/19 is forecast to expand 4.2 million metric tons (tons) from the previous year to 51.8 million as favorable weather leads to larger crops in Brazil and the United States.

@TrendFollower  Your last post on this trend was October 5th  2017. Given you spotted this trend back then, I guess the question is why have you have not been talking about it?

@FOXY,

I have but in different threads.

Also I work full time for a living!

I am an active contributor to the IG Community but there really is only so much I can post. 

You will find my posts on Orange Juice on other threads.

I also post actively on other Commodities and Cryptocurrencies. It is all about time!

Might be a bit late to catch this trend, it has come a long way. I would wait until the hurricane season starts stateside and if there looks to be something big on the way then go long.

@draa46,

If you look at the 'Weekly' and the 'Monthly' charts then you will see that there could be further downside.

As you can see from both charts the potential is there for further downward movement. If it keeps on making new lows then this is what a Trend Follower wants to see from a 'Short' trade. 

Ideal weather conditions in the state of Florida continues to accelerate harvest and if you add supplies that we haven't seen in several years so there could be more downside than one expects. The key will be demand / supply and right now along with the weather conditions. For those holding short positions I would recommend continuing to hold until there is a clear trend reversal to the 'Long' side.

In my opinion the fundamentals do seem to explain the recent price action, and point to lower prices.

However I would personally be wary - lower prices increase the likelihood of the US stepping in with a tariff on Brazilian imports to protect domestic producers.

A break below $9000 is on the cards unless there is some positive news or any positive drivers to support an increase in Orange Juice prices.

Below $9000 seems inevitable based on the current strength of the trend and bearishness of the charts.

Orange Juice seems to have found some support around the 10100 price level. It seems to be going through a consolidation period after a long downward move. 

If one begins to monitor the price action for Orange Juice then one will be able to identify any potential breakout. For anyone still short I would suggest liquidating the position as that capital can be used elsewhere whilst Orange Juice makes up its mind on future direction.

    • Hey @dmedin, our analysts did a piece on this yesterday you might be interested in.  https://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/what-will-happen-to-the-premier-oil-share-price-after-the-electi-191210
    • They are expecting a good Christmas and will be opening a new robotic 🤖 warehouse in 2021.  So it looks good for a wee long.  🐮
    • When looking at these markets and the trading behaviour of the average retail trader it seems to me that many don't really understand the market they are trading, there are also psychological factors that influence decision making to the detriment of trading success. If you are not confident in your understanding of the market then you are solely dependent on technical analysis but TA is not a given, it can only play out if assisted by fundamental and macro factors, those factors currently point to bull continuation. So the US major indices are routinely hitting new all time highs, the retail trader thinks they need to sell the high in order to buy back lower (buy low sell high right) so the retail trader (the crowd) are constantly trying to pick the tops (and patting themselves on the back thinking they are being contrarian). The positioning data of IG clients tell us this is exactly what's happening. Every time price goes higher the sell position ratio increases, when price is falling in a down trend the buy position ratios go higher. So clearly this is all wrong, when price is continually rising you need to buy high and sell higher. You buy breakouts or pullbacks, you should not be looking to sell a bull trending market at all. So why do they do it? The market is too high (no it's not), it must be the bears turn (wait and see first), but I need to sell the highs, the saying says so (no, you're not an investor), the chart is looking 'toppy' (just no), the TA is pointing down (doesn't matter without fundy and macro assist). An understand of a market comes with experience, until it does stick with the basics and look for longs in an uptrend, don't try to second guess the market and end up constantly fighting against it.
