Food Commodities Viewed by TigerSoft

                         We are long DBA.  The chart shows why.  Prices surpass the 50-day ma with the Tiger
               Accumulation Index being positive.  The bulge of intense accumulation showed that the advance
               was heating up and could go "hyperbolic".   The commodity charts here are based on "perpetual
               contracts".   The longer term charts show that these commodities' prices often spike and fall
               back very quickly.  Using protective stops just below their 5-day or 10-day ma is probably

                      This page shows how strong, lot of Accumulation and high relative strength, Food
             Commodities are now.
========================  Corn   ================================ 
                 CORN is on a Buy.  Positive Accumulation confirmed the breakout. The all-time high
                 was seen at 525 very briefly in 1993 or 1994.  (See the monthly chart below).  The last time
                 it reached this level it reversed and quickly lost all its gains. 
This calls for caution.

========================  Cocoa   ================================ 
                                         COCOA - Break was confirmed by positive Tiger Accumulation.
                           Note how high the levels of recent Accumulation are.  Higher prices must
                           be expected.  It previously peaked at 2400 in 2002.  A double top was needed
                           to bring about a reversal.

  ========================  Soybeans  ================================    

                            Soybeans are at an all-time high.   Their history shows numerous spikes up
            followed by equally steep declines.  This means that a 5-day or 10-day ma should
            probably be used to protect profits.

 ========================  Wheat   ================================  
                  Wheat is at an all-time high.  Its peaks are often spikes.  This means that a 5-day or 10-day
      ma should probably be used to protect profits.
