CORN futures are one of the most popular commodities to trade. Here are 3 trading strategies that can be used when trading CORN futures.
This is probably the most common CORN futures trading strategy. The idea behind this strategy is to buy futures when the price is trending upwards and sell when the price is trending downwards. This strategy can be used on any time frame from short term charts such as 5 minutes all the way up to long term charts such as monthly charts.
The key to this strategy is to make sure you understand what the current trend is and to enter trades in the direction of that trend. One way to do this is by using trend lines or moving averages.
The breakout strategy is a bit more aggressive than the trend following strategy. With this strategy, traders will look for prices to breakout of previous highs or lows. When prices breakout to new highs, traders will look to buy while expecting prices to continue higher. When prices breakout to new lows, traders will look to sell while expecting prices to continue lower.
Traders will usually place their stop loss orders just above or below the previous high or low depending on which direction they are trading. As with the trend following strategy, breakout trades can be taken on any time frame but are often taken on shorter time frames such as 1 hour or 4 hour charts.
This CORN futures trading strategy is the opposite of the trend following strategy as it looks to trade against the current trend. So, if prices are in an uptrend, traders would look for selling opportunities and if prices are in a downtrend, traders would look for buying opportunities.
One way to trade countertrends is by waiting for prices to retrace back towards a previously established support or resistance level before entering a trade in the opposite direction. Another way to trade countertrends is by identifying reversal candlesticks such as hammer or shooting star candlesticks which often signal that a reversal is about to occur.
These are just 3 of the many different CORN futures trading strategies that can be used when trading this commodity. Which one you use will depend on your own personal preferences and risk tolerance levels. However, it’s always a good idea to have multiple strategies in your toolkit so that you can adapt as market conditions change.
