    I like that trade. Well done. Especially if we get some further settlements above that trendline.

    I would do that spread, but I am already long July-Nov Beans and I would not want to compound forward curve risk in that space.

    Good eye.

    I'm long May-July Sugar as well, but it does not appear that those forward curves correlate to US Grains to any extent.

    Great call on your spread. Good one - I had seen that one, liked it, but didn't want to compound the long forward curve risk I already had going on in the US grain space even though yours is clearly a crush and the dynamics for products are clearly a bit different. I got out of my long Soybean July-Nov Calendar and the Sugar #11 May-July Calendar last week.
