There have been many shorting opportunities in Commodities

Recommended Posts

If one looks at Commodities then there have been many shorting opportunities. In fact there have been more shorting opportunities than long opportunities recently. 

Nickel for an example looks like an interesting short as the price is below 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages. The chart below will illustrate this nicely.

Nickel is not the only one. There are quite a few at the moment where there is a short trade on.

If one looks at London Wheat then it looks like an attractive short. New York Cocoa, Soybean Meal and Chicago Wheat also look as if there are shorting opportunities.

The charts below will show one thing in common they are all trading below the 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages.

I took a quick short in wheat on Monday I believe. I did purely out of fundamental reasons as the USDA reported a larger harvest.

Quickly exited the trade though as I couldn't see anymore down-movement.

@zala, you don't need to use quote here as what happens is my posting is in effect showing twice if you scroll up.

If you use the @ sign and type Trendfollower you can refer posts to me which reduces the need to quote. I think the quote option is better on specific words and sentences that you wish to discuss and refer to. Whole postings like this just seem a waste on the thread. 

From a technical perspective, I can only see downward movement unless the trend reverses for both London and Chicago Wheat.

How long did you hold your trade for? When you say you could not see anymore down-movement this can be tested in the coming week. Lets see how both the price of London and Chicago Wheat behave and act. The best way to test any inferences one may elude to and test and assumptions is to merely look at the price action.

    • Bitcoin at 1:30 pm UK time is still holding up above $9k level which is good so far. It may not last and by tomorrow morning could be back below $9k or shooting up to $10k such is the unpredictability and volatility in Bitcoin. 
    • I wanted to just share the 'Monthly' Silver chart. I shall let you all draw your own conclusions and make your own predictions / assumptions.  Now have a look at the 'Weekly' chart below: For me one could argue that all the downside is played into Silver and any sight of significant bad new could lead to immense upside. It would be a 'Contrarian' type investment / trade but it would also be a 'buy and hope' investment and style. There is nothing wrong with that as long as one accepts that is what it may be. Right now time for some serious 'Flooding'. Apologies if you do not get a chance to this this post or my previous post on this thread due to severe 'Flooding'. The weather is bad in the UK. 😂
