DAN BURKE'S DAILY OPTION RUN 10/10/13
MACRO OUTLOOK: There isn’t much to say about these grain markets today. Big capital remains on the sidelines. The chicago nov beans found a daily high at 1302. Look for support to come in at 1260 and then 1220. I like selling nov beans and leaning on 1313 as a stop area. Chicago Dec corn moved lower and settled at 438 1/4. Support can be found at 420. I am neutral Dec corn with my eye on getting long if we see a harvest sell off. The chicago dec wheat is my favorite leveraged play. Support can be found at 680. I find comfort in getting long and leaning on the 680 level. 704 is next resistance. Please keep in mind, while looking below, that commissions and fees are not included in the cost of the option. In certain markets, I propose blending in the mini contracts as a fun approach to selling rallies and buying dips. Good trading and stay vigilant to your conviction.

In technical analysis, investors and analysts study charts of trading patterns and prices to forecast changes in a security, commodity, currency or index. Support refers to an area on a chart where buy orders may be clustered. Resistance is an area where there may be sell orders. Fibonacci retracement is named after a 12th century Italian mathematician and based on the theory that prices rise or fall by predictable amounts after reaching a high or low.
Technical analysis, popularized by Charles Dow, creator of the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1896, is based on the theory that a chart of the price of financial assets contains clues to future movements.
Bollinger bands, developed by John Bollinger in the 1980s, are used by technical analysts to identify the turning point in an asset’s trajectory. The limits represent two standard deviations from the 20-day moving average, implying that the likelihood of a currency moving outside the band is rare.
