Corn Swing Trade:
Heavy volume on the ETF has signaled, short term reversals on the daily
Because I don't actually know if today's volume was a break down or exhaustion, I don't know of the volune is a positive or negative this time.
Break outs can be heart breakers or money makers!
Exit this trade when the 10 SMA > 20 SMA, indicating a short term change in momentum.

50 SMA < 200 SMA
Long term bear trend that broke another support level.
Fake out to the upside before the break
Record crop acreage planted 2017
