More Downside for Soybeans Likely.Bubba starts the show off talking about the jobs number and what it really means. Bubba explains that the number is garbage overall when you look underneath the hood. Markets will do what they want which is what the money actually dictates. The equity market is not necessarily related to the economy.
Jane King joins Bubba and they are both saddened by what has taken place in Dallas and discuss their worry and concern over the future. The obvious problem with this shooting, although it had nothing to do with terrorism, is that this type of violence is created when you continue to wipe out the middle class. There are so many issues that should have Americans concerned.
Technical analyst Matt Demeter joins the show with his weekly spot on analysis of the charts. Matt feels that the tops of the market are in, although he would not be surprised if the S&P made a run at the highs. The charts and technical tools Matt uses indicate that the current Bull Run is over; in fact Matt talks about the short position they took on Friday.
Bubba asks Matt about the commercial trader’s position in the VIX which has been at record highs. Matt explains that they have reduced their overall position but are still carrying sizable short positions in Gold and Silver. Bubba and Matt talk about the grains and the recent sell off, both believing there is more downside to come in the Soybean market.
