Waiting, For The Next Chess Move
In chess, most (if not all) opens and responses have a name:
It’s been nearly one year, since discussing a potential corn trading strategy; during that time, the strategy remains in effect (not advice, not a recommendation).
We’re still waiting for a chess move from the ‘other side’.
Keeping in concert with traditional opening moves as named above, we’re going to name our set-up as follows:
‘Potato Head Gambit’
That is, an ‘administrative’ move which temporally puts the corn futures market into chaos. A move similar to Carter’s grain embargo of the 1980s.
The weekly chart of tracking fund CORN, shows us something’s about to happen.
Either we get a breakout … or breakdown.
Teucrium Corn Fund, CORN, Weekly
The ‘Derecho‘ is marked as it was the kickoff to the current structure.
A wedge has formed.
A breakdown puts CORN, at a measured move in the vicinity of 18.0; a breakout to the upside, measures approximately to 38.0.
From a trading perspective, a breakdown is preferred.
Price action pushing lower to the 18-area, puts CORN below well established (support) lows of 2021.
A penetration of those lows would (potentially) put CORN in Wyckoff Spring Position.
