Re: Corn prices higher/Limitup/


Totally agree...preservation of capital is #1. That is why most people should not trade a weather market. That is why I say stay away from the charts in a weather market. Sure, there are a lot of lower risk ways to manage positions. I am not opposed to spread trading....nor am I totally opposed to options trading....but all I am saying is that trading any markets....fundamentals need to be a part of the over-all analysis of your trading decisions. One guy told me he went short corn last fri...because he thought it was over-bought--case in point. Gunslingers keep the markets alive. Without volatility, the markets would die...and low risk traders would not make any money. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate your effort here. Charts are important (as well as fundamentals). Unfortunately the majority of the traders cannot digest and interpret the 10% of the fundamentals that drive a market. Teaching charts is a lot easier than teaching fundamentals. I cannot devote a enough on this form time to teach the fundamentals and charts. At some point I will start offering people to come to my webinars. There, we will discuss grain fundamentals with outside markets and charts....as well as option and spread recommendations.
