Bearish For Natural Gas Prices, Soybeans Deeper Into March

The wild swings in soybean prices are due to the very tight old crop stocks, reduced Argentina crop from dry weather, harvest delays to the Brazil crop and near record high Palm Oil and China soybean prices.

It is hard to gauge from one day to the next, which outside fundamental factors will influence soybeans. If the Brazil harvest improves a bit with drier weather in the north with some rains in the south, it may create a sell-off in May and July soybeans again. Though again, this market is difficult to trade, short term right now.

Shoulder month and no extreme cold still leans bearish for natural gas prices

I was lucky enough to catch the move up in natural gas on the Arctic Pig and massive February cold spell but became bearish around $3.00 calling quite early the “big mid-late winter” warm-up.

This being a “shoulder month” for the natural gas market, without any extreme cold weather is still potentially bearish heading into April.

Renewable energy stocks soar after my buy recommendation

I am constantly doing research about new technologies around the world, with respect to a warming planet, environmental hazards brought on by CO2, etc., etc. My thoughts about certain stocks that I favor are shared with premium members of our service. They have partaken in a massive 20-40% rally last week.

These companies have been “under my microscope” as the world goes into more of a “green economy” for investment decisions. Not only do I list my preferences (which stocks to consider the most), but I also suggest specific trade strategies for both the aggressive and the conservative investor.

Calling the bear market in wheat. What about corn?

The map above shows rainfall across the Plains and Midwest from late last week through much of this week. Areas in red are more than 2-3″. I began predicting this quite early, about 7-10 days ago, and suggested adjusting our portfolio accordingly as per my more bearish outlook in wheat.
