Commoditizing the world

Let's discuss commodities; With the latest Enron situation, it is important to understand the way things work. A commodity is anything useful, especially a transportable agricultural product or mining product. This comes from the Latin word "commoditas" meaning roughly advantage, convenience. So then what is a commodity? Well we consider Gold, Silver, wheat, corn, pork bellies, coffee, etc all commodities.

They show up time and again but can catch us out because we've been conditioned to stay with the dominant trend. It started last Friday with the Harami, inside day. Monday broke lower following through, so it seemed, with the down trend running since July. By the end of the day, it had reversed, leaving behind a long wick that turned the day's trading into a Hammer, one of the best price action reversal candles. Tuesdays price action confirmed the FBR. The rule is that when price comes back above the high of the downside breakout candle, the FBR is set. Earlier sell trades closed and then reversed. That's exactly what we have done.
