  3. priceless insight.
    most people rather point to the finger to the market, the plan, the approach,
    but seldom to themselves.

    Corn Swing Trade:

    Concerns
    • Heavy volume on the ETF has signaled, short term reversals on the daily
    Plan
    • 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.
    • MAs are lagging indicators, so my risk is greater, but this strategy should prevent a premature shakeout if corn is still too high.
    Favorable conditions
    • 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
