My January 18th, 2024, post was more than specific recommending April Hog accumulation in coordination with my Long-Term strategies. Please call me if you would a re-send. 312-690-7763.


Yesterday, Hog futures exploded to the upside as the cash market raged higher.


As a matter of fact –


The National Daily Direct Afternoon Hog report showed a gain of a whopping $5.76. Clients and subscribers should note that it’s been a long time since we have realized a daily cash increase of this magnitude.




Subsequently, packers need to make up for lost slaughter time and are seeing demand pick up dramatically.


Pork in cold storage at the end of last year was down 6% from a year ago with bellies down 11%. Yesterday cut-out values were up 0.83 cents.


Those of you that did in fact call to buy hog futures should continue to hold positions. My objective is the UPPER 25% of the Long-Term trading range ($88.50/$92.00).



Remember there are four important components regarding my strategies…


  1. Positions are established only in the upper or lower 25% of the Long-Term trading range.
  2. Positions are established only when my trend following methodology is up or down within that 25% parameter.
  3. Positions are held until positions reach the opposite extreme high or low. (The upper or lower 25% of the Long-Term trading range).
  4. Correct money management strategies must be implemented.


There is no question that more that 90% of commodity investors lose money…


And it’s true that my strategies also incur drawdowns…


But – What I offer is a way to be “in the market” when major commodity moves occur.


My strategies require one to maintain –


  • Patience
  • Commitment
  • Vision
  • Discipline


Those of you that have an interest in additional details regarding my strategies should call me personally. 312-690-7763.

Would love to hear from you.


In the meantime,


Have a great year trading!
