Wheat correction over for now?

Feb 10, 2020 | 10:14 1 Indicators on the daily wheat charts are suggesting the bull market correction inspired by concern over the coronavirus may be coming to an end.

In particular, the March Kansas Wheat futures (hard red winter) triggered a buy on the daily chart with an initial target of $5.32/bu then a secondary at $5.47. Minneapolis should follow suite with a goal of $5.90 then $6.04/bu US.

Given the Canadian dollar is looking like it is trying to break down through support at $.7500 US, the combined action should help our prairie bids.

We shall see… Reply With Quote
Feb 10, 2020 | 11:16 2 I guess the chart indicators I use are a little different.
Here would be my stance at present: I don't have a position on in any of the wheat pits.

Chicago, failed buy signal. Neutral, no position
Kansas, no buy signal. Hold or in other words, no further shorts added right now, be ready to lighten up
Minneapolis, no buy signal, short, not adding to position at present.

The correction could very well be over and your buy signal may turn out to be profitable.

Maybe sooner if the signals fail... Reply With Quote

I hope this is a realistic goal, $5.90 March would make wheat a decent price.

Everything is pointing towards holding wheat until summer. Reply With Quote

    Update: Move 'em up some more!

    Feb 18, 2020 | 13:57 6 Good point farming, I absolutely would expect to have to roll to May futures as the time before first notice day for the March runs out.

    Today's strong rally suggests we should be on our way now to the May futures targets which are as follows,

    May Chicago wheat - $6.20 initially, $6.38 potentially
    May Kansas wheat - $5.39 initially, $5.55 potentially
    May Minneapolis wheat - $6.00 initially, $6.15 as a potential secondary

    It is worth noting that the Chicago wheat futures went inverted on Friday and built on that today. For those not sure, what that means is the March futures are now a premium to the May futures (instead of the normal discount for the cost of carrying the inventory to May). That is a bullish sign as it shows the need for inventory sooner rather than later. Reply With Quote

    Given the surge in gold and silver yesterday as well, I suspect it had more to do with some entity wanting to own commodities that had very little to no exposure to China (thus the lack of interest in the energy or oilseed markets).

    May well have been from money that had been taken out of the record high stock market as an overall portfolio management plan.

    If so, that would be a positive development as it's not usually a one day affair.

    Just a thought... Reply With Quote

    Oversold for sure, but I wouldn't say Chicago or Minneapolis is so it might not matter Reply With Quote
