We began with the development of a classic small speculator short trap in the cotton futures market for Equities.com. We’ve been watching it build all week and finally issued an official COT Buy signal in our nightly discretionary email. Free Trial Available
Thanks in part to the lightened writing duties this week, I was able to step back and survey the markets as a mosaic. I find this exceptionally helpful in determining the big picture themes.
