LUMBER:  Lumber settled lower but is still holding its breakout from a possible head and shoulders bottomr while also being in a good support area. A close over 340 could confirm that lumber has bottomed out. BUY SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!

COCOA: Cocoa settled higher still in a downtrend as shown on its chart below but basing since the middle of November. Holding the 2800 area seems imperative  while a close over 2950 again while taking out 2960 could change the complexion of this commodity.SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!

SUGAR:  Another NEW CONTRACT LOW AND CLOSE tells us all we need to know for now except its nearest good looking resistance area starts above 1550.  SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS! For additional charts, quotes, news, commentary & more, sign-up for a FREE 30-day trial to market head.Com.

 

COTTON: Cotton has had a mild upward bias since the middle of November but still looks bearish since early May. Long term the trend is obviously down but use 5850 and 6050 for your parameters in the short term for now. Good resistance starts around 6150 while not much support remains below. SELL SIGNAL.

COFFEE: Coffee settled lower looking pretty weak since topping out in the middle of October. Coffee, in my opinion, really needed to hold the180 area. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS! 

 

 

ORANGE JUICE: OJ had its worst close in three weeks still bullish but now having some resistance overhead. settled higher after making its worst low in over a week and wile having some reistance just overhead. BUYSIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
