LUMBER:  Lumber settled slightly lower but looks like its retracement rally from June could be over. Holding the 325 aera becomes imperative at least to me while it could only partially penetrate its resistance between 330 and 340. Little support remains below. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!

COCOA: Cocoa settled slightly lower looking scary at its present level but very bullish overall since moving up sharply since July 17th. Below there is strong looking support from 3140 down to 3130 while cocoa hasn't settled below 3040 since May 28th. BUY SIGNAL.

SUGAR:  Sugar settled higher again but still in a possible BEAR PENNANT OR A BEAR TRIANGLE. Little support remains below while 1690 is a key price to hold. 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 made a new CONTRACT LOW AND CLOSE pretty much saying it all. Little support (some around 6800) up to the 7600 area should keep the bears nervous. SELL SIGNAL. CALL FOR DETAILS!

COFFEE: Coffee closed higher for its seventh time in eight sessions moving sharply higher acting like coffee usually does!This was coffee's best high and close since late June with no end in sight. Still, it's at the upper end of a good looking resistance area that goes from around 170 up to the 180 area. Forget my sell signal but I don't quite have a buy yet.

ORANGE JUICE: OJ settled down for its third session in a row looking to test its last low below 14600 in a pretty bearish looking market overall. SELL SIGNAL.  CALL FOR DETAILS!
