Rough Rice by TrendFollower

Recommended Posts

Rough Rice went up 246 points today and was up around 2.18%

There is a clear breakout. Trend identification is key. I do not know if this trend will get stronger or manifest itself into one hell of a 'Long' trade but identifying key trends to monitor is crucial to a trading strategy. This could lead to a potentially profitable trade. 

It does not matter which asset you are trading. The important point is that it is trending strongly and that you identify it as early as possible. If one can utilise leverage to take advantage of points per £ and the directional move is in your favour then it is about maximising potential profits against risk. 

I include the latest chart below. Rough Rice is trading above its 20, 50, 100 and 200 DMA. This is a bullish indicator signalling a 'Long' trade.

The volume (green bars) supports the price action and strong recent move upwards. This is another strong signal. I include the chart below to illustrate this point.

The Parabolic SAR is also showing the price above the green dots which is yet another bullish indicator. I include the chart below to show this point.

Momentum is another key factor and this also shows in the favour of Rough Rice and I include the chart below to show this.

Now all the above things can be used in your 'trading basket' to aid you in making an effective as possible trading decision. Using the above will not guarantee that your trade will be both successful or profitable. What it can do is allow you an opportunity to trade with the trend rather than against it and increase the odds and probability in your favour. You will notice that I have not included anything too technical or complex above. These are all indicators available on IG's platform. Your trading style can be as simple as you want it. Trading does not need to be complex or difficult that very few can understand.

So what is Rough Rice doing at the moment?

It hit $11765.90 today which was its highest price point since the start of this year (2019). 

Now it is being reported that Sri Lanka is expecting a bumper harvest. However to balance this Bangladesh are having to deal with export issues such as government subsidies. There has been flooding near Arkansas river which has left a field of flooded rice. 

Rice may not be the sexiest asset to trade but sometimes the best trades are those you least expect. It is about identifying the trends and breakouts in the first place at the earliest opportunity and trading them to your advantage in the direction of the trend rather than against it.

Rough Rice is trending nicely at the moment. Rice may not be the sexiest commodities to trade but the chart is looking good from a price action perspective.

Rough Rice is very 'choppy' to trade but it is going up slowly though the price action is 'erratic' so it is not one of the nicer trends to trade in my personal opinion. There are far more better trends out there which are also stronger. I think 'Swing' traders may appreciate it a bit more.

The one thing I do is monitor the price action of various assets. So within Commodities I will monitor the price action of several / various Commodities to try and identify any trends as early as possible based on price action.

Trading is not just about monitoring the price action of what you are trading but monitoring the price action of what you are not trading. This is where experience, learning and knowledge can be acquired from.

    • Where can I find a list of the US ETFs which are tradable with IG? I can't receive market data for those via the API (same as for stocks), correct?
    • US Dollar - The World's Reserve Currency: The US Dollar as the world's reserve currency is an issue which causes mix reactions and thoughts. When the US Dollar  became the reserve currency there was no Euro or Chinese Renminbi. Since their introduction it has eaten into the US Dollar's world dominance and as a result has led to it declining from the 70%-80% range to the 60% range. If one remembers, the UK Pound Sterling, once was the world's reserve currency but it now only accounts for around 4% at the moment. So things can change and it is not a given that the US Dollar will remain the world's reserve currency forever. It will have to earn that right which it may well do.  The US Dollar’s share of global central bank reserves hit a 5-year low, according to the International Monetary Fund. Now is this the beginning of a significant change here? Is the US, the world superpower it once was? There is no doubt it is the mightiest country in the world at this moment in time in terms of economics but imagine if the US Dollar lost its reserve currency status. This would have a large impact on the economics within the US.  I do not envisage the US losing its status anytime soon but if things continue to get worse and other countries find ways to conduct international transactions / transfers / payments without the need to hold US Dollars, and an alternative arises then who knows. 
    • Going back to my FTSE analysis I see things as follows: 2 scenarios present themselves, other than fresh ATHs that is: 1) the move down to the turn on Thursday was a wave 1 (blue) off a larger scale wave 2 (purple) that should retrace, maybe in a complex fashion with a lot of whip saw price action maybe not, let's see; 2) the recent rally and drop to a new low was a 1-2 (red), which indicates a much stronger leg down is immanent. The #2 scenario would only be valid if price holds below the previous high (circa 7300).  I favour the #1 scenario. There was PMD on the 4H chart at wave 1 (blue), which suggests this is a turning point.  Also the 4H chart shows a 1-5 wave down to the 1 blue, which would be motive and suggests a trend change to the bearish side. There was strong NMD at wave 2 (Purple) which is consistent with a large scale retrace move. Just as with the US large caps, after the stop and turn up there was a sharp retrace drop to the Fib 76/78% zone before the current rally.  As the FTSE was in out of hours at the end of the week this market has not rallied as hard as the US markets.  Also we may yet see fresh ATHs on US large caps while the FTSE100 only puts in a counter trend rally. If we do see fresh ATHs on US large caps and only a retrace on FTSE and probably Dax and Nikkei as well then comparing these markets will be instructive for calling that top on US large caps.  We may, alternatively, see only a retrace on US large caps too if the top of the market in already in. Conclusion: we can anticipate a bullish period on all major indices BUT should guard against a quick reversal on FTSE 100 that would set up scenario #2.  Either way this market looks to have topped out so the coming months though to the Autumn will be critical to deciding things on all indices, and likely quite a few other markets. I am Long the FTSE 100, coincident with my Dow Longs and will swing this up for now but my bearish bias for the long term will keep we watchful for a break down of this rally and I will not be pyramiding this one, far too risky until things are resolved.
