The US Dollar made a fresh 10 month high today as investors and traders see a more stable outlook for the US economy which could mean the Fed induced quantitative easing programs may come to an end soon. This helped to pressure markets like crude oil and gold but soybeans managed to find a bid late in the day on tight cash markets and profit taking in the July/November spread. Traders are looking ahead to the NOPA crush report this week as it will provide direction as to the crush pace going forward and demand in the last month. The basis in the Gulf was lower midday on light export demand. The basis weakness moved up the river and bids around St. Louis softened according to physical traders. Soybean export shipments have slowed considerably over the last couple of months as China and other world buyers shift demand to South America. Meal demand continues to be strong out of the US which is helping to keep crush margins steady amid record basis levels in the interior of the US."

FCPO- We Need More Positive Data And News

I have wrote bold write up from time to time and although some may sound entirely out of market tune or ridiculous, all of them are just part of the trading journey every traders gone through daily. I had both good and bad days and I do not think this cycle would stop unless I quit trading. The point is, there are x amount of possibility to make a loss or profit when you pull any trades, you cannot get away from these probability. No trade is too good to pass on nor it is too bad to take, you just have to pull the trigger when your trading system or criteria ask you to, the worst you can do is second guessing yourself. Back to FCPO, market has been running into a huge consolidation phase if you zoom out and look at daily chart. ATR has dropped into bottom territory for the past seven months as the market travelled within 2,614~2,209 since Oct 2012. It is normal to expect high ATR range in the Bearish market due to high volatility but not lower than normal reading, which telling you the market is actually consolidating in the long run. On smaller time frame, market will tend to adjust it self if it move too high or too low. And that is what we are looking at right now, market went up to 2,340 previous high at 12th April 2013 and have to retreat due to overbought reading. Settle RM8 lower to 2,301 level, it will do two things from here, making higher low or path more way for further recovery if it could rally above 2,321 level today, or retrace further (Down trending) if the July contract went down below 2,285 level.
