Elliott Wave vs. Mother Nature ... to decide corn prices.

Elliott Wave vs. Mother Nature ... to decide corn prices.

Corn prices have gone ballistic in the last two weeks as supplies are hurt and further threatened by a heat wave. But the move in corn prices is primarily due to traders running away screaming "Auntie Em! Auntie Em!" ... rather than jumping on any prospects for a sustained bullish uptrend. The short position in corn futures has shriveled up, accounting for 75% of the decline in open positions; the Reuters chart above shows the rising price relative to the falling open interest. What's the next move?

Elliott Wave analysis identifies an expanding wedge as a consolidation pattern to help predict future price direction. This weekly chart of corn, with the expanding wedge I've drawn in, suggests five waves of consolidation may be in and corn prices could fall significantly lower.
