Corn's overall trend, revealed by trends of price, leverage, and time, are defined and discussed in The Matrix for subscribers.
The invisible hand is absolutely a force to be reckoned with, with violent move in corn over the past two weeks many in the trade assumed the managed money (speculators) must have added 150,000 contracts of length to their positions when in fact they were net sellers of over 20,000 contracts. The strength coming from the cash markets is very powerful, it’s extremely rare to have the spreads blow out (May/July go from 15 cents to 70 cents) have the board rally $1.20 per bushel and have the cash basis levels rally all at the same time. This is a sign of extreme cash market tightness and now the Brazilian corn crop is absolutely burning up, this physical tightness in corn is quickly becoming a global problem.
God help us if we have a weather problem in the US crop during the June/July period.
The invisible hand is relentless and understands the markets better than any of us. The Matrix and Evolution of the Trade (EOT) was created to follow it (invisible hand) by removing self (emotions) from the investing equation. Mastering the EOT allows us to see markets as a function of price, time, and energy cycles.
Let's talk about how corn has moved through the EOT to get to where it is today.
Please frame this video with the most recent assessment of corn in terms of price, time, and energy cycles. Corn, wheat, bean, or any market in the Matrix tends to surprise inexperienced traders, because they fail to understand cycles of price, time, and energy.
