Technical Analysis

Arabica Coffee (KC) Daily MACD Positively Crossing


Arabica Coffee (KC) bounced 1% yesterday, and appears to be ready to resume the week long rally off a higher low (last week) versus April's low.  Although KC is firmly still within a descending wedge/downchannel (on the weekly chart), it is worth monitoring for a major trend reversal as hinted by the impressive ~1.15-1.26 rally in the 2nd half of April.  The weekly, daily and 4hr RSI, Stochastics and MACD are bottomish, rallying or consolidating recent gains.  I am looking to enter long in the green zone (of the daily chart), targeting the red zone for early next week.  The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I set my stops tighter).

Technical Analysis

Raw Sugar (SB) Breaks 4 Month Downchannel Resistance


Raw Sugar (SB) rallied another more than 1.5% yesterday, but after 4 days of gains, is vulnerable to a bit of healthy profittaking today.  Significantly, SB has decisively broken above a 4 month downchannel resistance (on the weekly chart), and appears poised to rally towards a 1 year plus downtrend resistance line (on the weekly chart) over the next few weeks.  The weekly, daily and 4hr RSI, Stochastics and MACD are bottomish, rallying or consolidating recent gains.  I am looking to enter long in the green zone (of the daily chart), targeting the red zone for early next week.  The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I set my stops tighter).

Technical Analysis

Wheat (ZW) Daily MACD Positively Crosses


Wheat (ZW) rebounded almost 3% yesterday, bouncing off just above an uptrend support line (on the 4hr and daily chart).  Significantly, ZW's green weekly Hammer completes last week's reversal of the prior week's profittaking, and paves the way for a resumption of a 5 month uptrend.  The weekly, daily and 4hr RSI, Stochastics and MACD are bottomish, rallying or consolidating recent gains.  I am looking to go long in the green zone (of the daily chart), targeting the red zone for Friday.  The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I set my stops tighter).

Arabica Coffee (KC) Daily MACD Trying to Positively Cross


Arabica Coffee (KC) bounced almost 2% yesterday, reinforcing a higher low (last week) versus April's low.  Although KC is firmly still within a descending wedge/downchannel (on the weekly chart), it is worth monitoring for a major trend reversal as hinted by the impressive ~1.15-1.26 rally in the 2nd half of April.  The weekly, daily and 4hr RSI, Stochastics and MACD are bottomish, rallying or consolidating recent gains.  I am looking to enter long in the green zone (of the daily chart), targeting the red zone for Thursday.  The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I set my stops tighter).

Technical Analysis

Raw Sugar (SB) Forms First Green Weekly Candle in 11 Weeks


Raw Sugar (SB) bounced almost 1% Friday off prior triangle/downtrend resistance now support (on the 4hr chart).  Significantly, SB formed the 1st green weekly candle in 11 weeks, and appears to be in the early stages of attempting a major trend reversal.  Before bulls get too excited, they'll want to see SB break above a 4 plus month downchannel resistance intersecting roughly .12 (on the daily and weekly charts).  The weekly, daily and 4hr RSI, Stochastics and MACD are bottomish, rallying or consolidating recent gains.  I am looking to enter long in the green zone (of the daily chart), targeting the red zone for mid week.  The amber/yellow zone is where I might place a stop if I was a swing trader (although in my personal account with which I seldom hold overnight I set my stops tighter).
