LUMBER:  Lumber settled lower making its lowest low and close since early August giving me a sell signal. The November has now settled below a good looking support area that becomes resistance. The key price area to now watch in my opinion is 320.SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS! For additional charts, quotes, news, commentary & more sign-up for a FREE 30-day trial to Market head.Com.

 

COCOA: Cocoa settled sharply higher making its best high and close in a couple of weeks. Cocoa has dropped dramatically over the last few weeks but, overall, remains in a uptrend since June 2013. Therefore, I will remove my sell signal and stand aside until I get a better grasp on the commodity. Decent resistance begins around 3190.  For additional charts, quotes, news, commentary & more sign-up for a FREE 30-day trial to Market head.Com.

 

SUGAR:  Sugar made another new CONTRACT LOW but settled higher in reversal type action this time. Now there's little resistance up to  the 1730 area and little support below. SELL SIGNAL.

COTTON: Although cotton has been moving higher since the beginning of August, it feels like it's just 'marking time' right now. You can buy as close to 6400 if you are bullish but it doesn't seem worth it to take a short position if bearish. A close over 6800 should confirm the possible beginning of a longer term bull market.

COFFEE: Coffee has been consolidating over the last week and it just below what was its closest support area  but is still difficult for me to trade off the chart at this time. Therefore, I'm continuing to stand aside.

 

ORANGE JUICE: OJ continues to tumble making its worst low and close since November 2013. There's not much in the way of support below but has good resistance starting around 14600. Also, OJ did settled near the upper end of its session's trading range.SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!
