Chart of the Day: Spring Setup in Corn

Corn is engaging the broad support zone at the bottom of the range. Watch for reversals and enter long positions on strong upward closes, which would put in classic Wyckoff springs. Close stops and active position management are essential—if the trade works it should move immediately and smartly higher, as price rejection sets in. If not, it may be best to reduce or exit positions as a further selloff could be in the cards. This is the nature of tactical inflections: there is often good potential in both directions, so nimble trading is required.
