Commercial traders have been aggressively selling soybean meal since the July high of 55.19. This is a clear adjustment in their expectations of the soybean crush as soybean by products become less desirable as feed to their increasing cost. Yesterday’s inside bar coupled with a Commitment of Traders sell signal provided a low risk entry for a counter trend trade. We sold soybean meal futures on the overnight penetration of yesterday’s low at 55.25. Normally, we would place our protective buy stop at the swing high. However, the inside bar setup allows us to place our stop tighter, at yesterday’s high of 58.24. We are looking for a 1/3 retracement from the June lows through this week’s high. This gives us a target of 55.17.
