Re: CORN: BCB/ Election Years *PIC*

Well checking your theory about Corn rallying Jan through March in Election years I did drag this chart back to the late 70's and you are correct. The 1984 election year the rally was from Feb through March. And the 1980 and 1976 election year this did not work as the markets were sideways to down. But every other election year since then including 1988, 1992 etc did see Corn rally Jan through March. Here is a Weekly chart showing the last 4 election years Jan/March marked in blue. Interesting statistic if you are a Corn trader or user or farmer.
