19:55- remove stops in beans if your comfortable..............all grains appear to be stablizing now.
Wheat has the best technical setup---stay w/ that buy-- avg= 772-- allow it to take out (day) lows if it needs.......

I am also long and looking to get more around 1425.6 . I still think we might make a little pop up before South America brings in the record crop. SO THEY SAY. We haven't had one inch of snow in Chicago for about 330 days. I know, who cares about Chicago but some of my trader friends are thinking thislittle thing called DROUGHT might continue. WHO knows.

Thx for the post gio,
i'm glad we took out our stops BELOW 1427^4---with this being our LOW print so far..............how are you with that short-term target overnight?..........WOW. Chicago only 1 in of snow & it's almost Feb!!!......WEIRD, WHACKY WEATHER continues, ey?
They're still calling Drought a LITTLE thing. Hmmmm.......next few months will be choice for sure as Ferris used to say. Tell your trader friends to browse around the Drought.gov site a bit....going back to 1999 (as far as palmer data goes), it has NEVER been close to this dry, coverage and intensity-wise this time of year......also, look at the PALEO-CLIMACTIC DATA. ...gives a broader perspective of what kind of cycle US might be in.

I do not know if you know the Grandma's investment club. The Beardstown Ladies-16 older women from a small town in Illinois-that pooled their money and substantially outperformed professional money managers and made millions.
We should think about that. I will put the first $5k-$10K and get a club going. Trade one or two days out of the week and trade heavy. Lets see where that can take us. Just a thought.
