The Weekly Call provides perspective on high quality setups and trading strategies for the coming week. We carefully select these setups due to their quality and profit potential and report back on results. This week we review Live Cattle, Gold and Coffee.
Live Cattle follow up
Bigger picture in Live Cattle, we have been hunting a big turn at a 18 month cycle low. It appears that the turn may be in, but it is currently unconfirmed.
So far here is what we have done:
— 10-03 – We have a profit potential of $3.80 on 1/3 of a position from the turn on 10/03, we were stopped out on the next move lower to a new low
— 10-16 – We recommended getting long again on the great setup at the Monthly S1 which was near the 100% fib at 95.70 AND at the declining resistance trend line.So far we have a profit potential of $7.90 from this entry. We encourage everyone to take off 2/3 of your position here and place your stop an even for a risk free position.
— 10-30 – We were five waves up and looking for a significant backtest into the monthly pivot at 102.625. We have gotten exactly the backtest we discussed. We did slightly penetrate the monthly pivot then broke back above. Depending on where you set your stop you may be out of the trade or you may be holding 1/3 of a position.
— This week we recommend trailing the stop higher as we expect to see divergence and targets of 108.45 or 110.125.
— We expect subscribers to have captured 60% of the swings we suggested. So far we are up $11.70 which for Live Cattle is a max profit of $4,680 per lot.
We cannot confirm the low and we cannot confirm a trend change yet. After wave w and x are complete we expect a big rally to push cattle into a new trend up.
We may have just seen the 18 month cycle low which means we may have a potential trend change sometime in Late November.

Gold Support Test This Week
We were hunting a low window in Gold and looking for a 60 handle trade to the upside. So far we have achieved 50 handles :
10-16 – We recommended a long in Gold on a higher low setup at 1252. So far we have $32.00 of profit potential.
10-30 – We recommended taking 2/3 of your position in profit and setting your stop to even for a risk free position. We expect subscribers to have captured 60% of this swing. So far in gold we have $5,000 in max profit.
11-6 We suggested looking for a small divergence legg higher to 1318 or so to form negative D on RSI then a definition backtest. If the backtest finds support at the monthly pivot inflection area at 1279, then we would add to our long position and expect 1320’s next.
This week we found ourselves with support at 74s and an impulse to 1338. Depending on where you set your stop, you may or may not have benefited from this move. At this point we are stopped out of our long in gold, having captured 50 of the 60 handles we forecasted.
At this point we are standing aside in Gold, waiting for a better setup for another long. We expect to see support in the 1200 area with divergence to re-enter another trade long.
Coffee showing a counter trend setup
We are hunting a big counter trend move in coffee and look for a potential entry last week. We called the turn in coffee back in February and called a trend change in June. We have a nice rounded bottom in Coffee on the Daily chart. Five up into the larger degree W means we have a significant backtest brewing.
10-30 – Coffee last week we were looking for two resistances – 167.30 monthly R2 and 168.25 100% fib as possible resistance. Both failed and we have made a new high.
11-6 – We suggested an entry this week and suggested waiting for a lower high and trading against 173.75. If 173.75 is broken we suggest the next entry attempt at the resistance trendline. NOTE – this is a counter trend trade and represents greater risk, on a trade below 165, take off 1/3 and put your stop to even to create a risk free position.
As suggested, last week we entered short with either an entry at the trendline or at the lower high, depending on your risk tolerance. We suggested taking off 1/3 at 165 and we now sit at the monthly pivot. We suggest taking of another 1/3 here at 158.75, so you should be in a risk free position with 2/3s of your trade in profit. This is counter trade trend so we recommend taking profits quickly and holding a 1/3 risk free position to target.
Depending on your entry, you should have captured 60% of the swing or 11 handles in coffee on 2/3s of a position, roughly a profit of $4,125 per contract.
We are expecting a large backtest this week, so make sure your stop is at even for a risk free position.
Have a GREAT trading week!!!
