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.

    • Within 7 minutes of my previous post Bitcoin has hit $9610.20. This is exploding to $10k very soon indeed. 
    • Bitcoin's price has popped and it has just hit at 9:00 pm UK time around $9580.70.  TrendFollower Predicton - Bitcoin will hit $10,000 imminently. 
    • Gold's price action is phenomonal right now. Silver must at some point experience exceptional price action as it has a lot of catching up to do. If things continue as they are then Silver has more upside potential than Gold based on a chartist perspective.  There is no guarantee that the US Fed is going to lower interest rates. So this current price behaviour is based on an assumption that it could in the future which makes it a very speculative trade. Lower interest rates will affect the US Dollar and Yields. As a result it could make Gold's Yield look quite attractive. However this is based on potential right now.  Now I personally have no problem with a speculative or assumption based trade as I try and trade the price action and right now Gold's price action is enabling its price to shoot upwards literally like a 🚀 rocket when looking at the 'daily' chart. So do I care what the Fed does or does not do in the future? Not really as trading based on price action means literally that and putting aside the drama of the US Fed and what it may or may not do in the future.
