You know, I wish I had something interesting or insightful to say. Last week sucked, and I’m just glad to be out of my losing positions (silver – ouch, pork bellies – rallied since, of course).
Did a bit of thinking, and it’s probably time I start following my own advice. Keep position sizes manageable, and just play the long term trends. Large position sizing has me jumping in and out of things too often – and I’m just getting chopped to hell by the volatility of it. I love the prospects of meat over the next year, and need to just keep things manageable so that I can stay in this trade.
In the meantime I’ll continue to keep an eye on the softs (sugar, coffee, cotton in particular) to see when things look closer to a breakout.
