ETF Trading Newsletter: Live Trade of the Month – It’s a bit Corny

ETF Trading Newsletter: In early February I started watching the CORN ETF very closely for a possible new bull market starting and a long entry point. Many of the other commodities had already posted strong rallies while corn sat on the side lines.

The Corn ETF is designed to follow the price of the continuous corn futures contracts. This commodity looked as though it was forming a base (launch pad) for the new rally and possible major bull market to start.

This post walks you through each step of the way from entering the Corn ETF trade, adding to a winning position, tightening our stops, locking in partial profits at our first price target etc.. In fact myself and subscribers are still long the Corn ETF as of today with my ETF trading newsletter.

ETF Trading Newsletter – CORN ALERT #1

We have been watching the commodities index rally for a few weeks now with natural gas, coffee, sugar, gold, silver and several others jump in price. We have been watching the GCC ETF which is a basket of several commodities to get a feel for the commodities market as a whole.

While most of the commodities have posted some solid gains, CORN has yet to pop in price. Corn looks to be forming a stage 1 basing pattern and the volume/money flowing into this fund suggest new money is moving into corn because it looks as though it will be the last to pop and rally in price.

This is similar to how we entered the silver trade a few weeks back. Everything else in the precious metals sector popped and silver lagged giving us a high probability setup.

Both the short and long term the charts of corn look bullish. As usual I will lock in some gains if we get a pop in the commodity, then let the balance ride with a break even stop. If corn is entering a new bull market phase (Stage 2) I want to hold some long term. There is potential for a 19%-30% rise in value.

ETF Trading Newsletter – CORN ALERT #2

New CORN Trade Order Pending

During the past couple weeks we have seen the CORN ETF trade sideways with fading volume. Recently we have seen a couple strong buying days in CORN which I call GET-READY spikes. These typically indicate some big money (insiders) are accumulating a position ahead of good news.

We are currently long CORN already and in the money, which is why I like this second setup even more. Because we already have a profit buffer, making the risk here is lower than normal. If you have ready some of the market wizard books you will also pickup on how the most successful traders pyramid up (average up) in winning trades.

My Plan Of Attack: I only want to buy on strength here focusing on entering the trade once is breaks a previous pivot high which in this case is: $34.06

Trade Setup:

Place a Buy-Stop order at $34.06, GTC (Good Till Canceled), 8% of portfolio position size

This type of order will enter you into the trade if price rallies and breaks that price point so you do not need to sit around and watch the charts. If you do not know this type of order just Google it only or call your broker. It is a very simple and basic order type.

ETF Trading Newsletter – CORN ALERT #3

CORN Position Added

This afternoon our CORN trade order was executed. Yesterday we set a Buy-Stop order so we get entered the commodity if price starts to breakout to the upside. These types of order are just like a stop order in respect that you just enter it and the market and broker do all the work after that.

This is why trading with a plan/strategy is much easier and less stressful. If you have a plan, do the leg work and execute it, things do not seem difficult or stressful. Problem is most traders don’t have a plan and even if they do, most times they don’t follow it. The result is a confused, stressed out trader/investor second guessing their every move.

I have updated the portfolio in the member’s area so you can review positions and protective stops.

CORN Position Adjustment – Locking in Gains

CORN has been moving in our favor for about a month now. Today’s pop in price has reached my short term measured move using fibonacci extensions and I feel it is time to lock in some gains and move our protective stop to breakeven.

We entered this position twice and your average price per share should be around $32.96.

I am moving my stop to breakeven and selling half of my position today. Current price is $35.10, as we are up 6.5%.
