TMV Swing Trade report – Short June Australian dollar from 1.0120 – Hit the Target! – The short Aussie has reached the target objective one day before the projected May 15th reaction date. The short position closed at .9915.
The confluence of support from the downward sloping parallel line and upward sloping reaction line could provide enough support for a short-term corrective rebound. I will continue to monitor the market for new signals.

By Andrew Johnson Jr. CHICAGO--U.S. corn futures settled sharply higher Monday, fueled by tight supplies and fears about planting delays. Front-month futures hit a six-week high as the market reversed Friday's decline following the U.S. government's monthly crop forecast. Chicago Board of Trade corn for May delivery settled up 30 1/4 cents, or 4.4%, at $7.18 a bushel. Corn futures for July delivery, the most actively traded contract, finished up 19 1/4 cents, or 3%, at $6.55 1/2 a bushel. The December contract settled up 9 3/4 cents, or 1.8%, to $5.39 1/4. The "front end" of the market, or contracts for near-term delivery, led prices higher, a signal of scant physical supplies following the severe drought last year in the U.S., which curbed corn output. End users from processors to shippers have ramped up near-term demand amid fears of domestic supplies only tightening further, said Mike Zuzolo, president of Global Commodity Analytics and Consulting in Lafayette, Ind. Basis levels--the gap between cash prices for physical supplies and futures--firmed up at many locations across the Corn Belt as end users from processors to exporters continued to push for supplies. Traders were also nervous that additional planting delays in the Midwest could result from heavy rains expected to move across the Midwest. Private weather forecasters show a wetter outlook for the Midwest a week from now. Farmers still should get a window to plant a lot of corn this week as conditions are favorable, but those delayed into next week may face uncertainty.

June Live Cattle have traded lower into the reaction date, projected for May 9th. The market is also inside the 60% buy zone, adding to the probability of a major reversal. Thursday’s session opened steady, before trading below the prior day’s low (one of the criteria for a reversal) and tested the downward sloping median line, before turning higher.

June Natural gas – Short from 4.310 – last price @ 4.062 – N-gas confirmed the bearish TR pattern sequence with a trade through the 4.310 trigger price. The market price drop was quick, but did find support at the longer-term ascending parallel line. I look for a short-term bounce to a least a pause at this level, so this may be a good place for short-term traders to exit the position, with a very nice gain, and wait for a pullback to re-enter.
