OPTIONS PLAY: Corn Keeps Popping
The Corn Futures market continued on the upward track today, as all the grains were higher.
Fundamentally, in my opinion the grain markets including Corn Futures seemed to get a boost today from the outside market influence of a lower U.S. Dollar Index. Typically, but not always, when the U.S. Dollar Index falls commodities traded in dollar tend to go up in price.
Technically, Although this market may be over bought I see Corn Futures in an upward SUPER-TREND as the market holds above both the 9 day and the 20 day Moving Averages. Also the volume of the last three days of this upward move has been good. See daily chart below. For more charts, studies , and commentary go to http://www.markethead.com/.
Buy December Corn Calls.
We also buy in a 3 to 1 ratio a put in case the market makes a MAJOR move against us.
