PREV (the Matrix)
New alignments: Soybeans (see Matrix for further details)
Soybeans alignment means all markets in the grain sector are in downside alignment. Technical breakdowns reversals will send this entire sector down, stair stepping lower as the experts assure us that the dollar will decline and the rally is temporary. The Matrix is not trying to sell us a narrative that suits your investment strategy. It objectivity studies the alignment of price and volume and the distribution of leverage across multiple time frames to define trends and energy. Wheat entered triple downside alignment first. It was followed by corn, and now soybeans. The expectation of increasing supply and moderating demand as the dollar rises is bearish, but the explanation really don't matter. They come after price has moved.
Using the Matrix
The value of the Matrix is far more than a study of price. Trends are a function of price, volume (force), volatility, and TIME. The order of their importance is as follows: (1) TIME, (2) volatility, (3) volume & price alignment. Volume and price alignment, a setup that triggers action, favors Grade A & B, early cycle markets under high compression (↓COM). ↓COM suggests extremely low volatility, a quiet trend ready to explode into high compression (↑EXP). Weekly and monthly breakout signals are not finalized until the end of the week and month, respectively. Signals generated before that could be temporary. Keep this in mind when reading alignment.
