Corn trend?

Post by Mats » Tue May 13, 2008 8:50 am

Have anyone any advice on corn?

I had -several 1R losses on corn recently. Have the market changed or is temporary choppy.

I had 1 init/exit on the same day.
1 had 2 init/exit in 3-5 days.

All in the last two months.

Is it the corn/ethanol linkage in the US that matters here.

I am papertrading a blox system, maybe i should remove corn from my portfolio?

Any comments from experienced trend followers?

What if you had removed say, RICE, during its past thin and choppy phases.

Yes i understand, the discretionary view is hard to forget for me in mechanical trading.

Thanks
