In this weekly issue, The J.E.D.I. Way will be covering price trends in the Futures, and Futures Options Markets for the long-term, intermediate-term, and short-term time periods for the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE contract and then list one or more trading opportunities that The J.E.D.I. Way will be seeking to add to its current holdings.
Note: The futures options for the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE FUTURES CONTRACT expire on February 19, 2009. The Futures for the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE FUTURES CONTRACT expire on March 11, 2009 (However, please note that The J.E.D.I.

Note: The above portfolio was selected based on my analysis of the MONTHLY CHARTS below for Orange Juice.
But before we do that, it is important to note that 63 represents a significant long-term support as well for the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE FUTURES. If prices ever close below this price level, it would signify that the long-term trend is indeed down and prices could retreat significantly lower. But for now, the long-term trend (>1 year) of the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE FUTURES is UP!

TRADING OPPORTUNITIES IN MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE FUTURES OPTIONS FOR THE SHORT-TERM (less than 3 weeks), INTERMEDIATE-TERM (3 weeks to 1 year) and LONG-TERM (greater than 1 year):
SHORT-TERM (< 3 WEEKS) TRADING OPPORTUNITIES IN THE FUTURES OPTIONS FOR MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE:
MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE 125 PUT OPTION (Ticker Symbol: OJH1 125P)
While the long-term trend and the intermediate-term trend of ORANGE JUICE is up, The J.E.D.I. Way believes that ORANGE JUICE could pull back in the near term and possibly close below the "FAN LINE" (or below 127) in the Daily Chart (above the one above), thus we will not trade the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE 2010 125 PUT OPTION until our SETUP for this particular option has to be met. That is, until the put option premium price for the March 2010 125 Put option trades above its 10 Day Moving Average (red line) in the chart above at around 11, if it ever does.
NOTE: I will send an alert out if the MARCH 2010 125 Put Option trades below above its 10 day moving average at around 11.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM TRADING OPPORTUNITIES (3 Weeks to 1 Year) IN THE FUTURES OPTIONS FOR MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE:
MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE 140 CALL OPTION (Ticker Symbol: OJH1 140C)
The J.E.D.I. Way will not trade the the March 2010 ORANGE JUICE 140 CALL OPTION (Ticker Symbol: OJH1 140C) since the premium price extended far beyond what would of been our entry point for this particular call option....4.50, and since it appears that the call option premium price may come back down near the 10 Day Moving Average (above - red line) and possibly go through it before going back up again above the 10 Day Moving Average. It has done this many times (as you can see above) since the bull market began in ORANGE JUICE in May 2009 with the premium price rising over time from 2.5 to 7.5.
Rather, we will wait for another BUY SETUP for this option to generate an ENTRY signal before going long this call option. The details for our BUY SETUP will come in time.
NOTE: If the preimum for the 140 call trades below its 10 Day Moving Average, The J.E.D.I. Way's BUY SETUP for the MARCH 2010 ORANGE JUICE 125 PUT OPTION (Ticker Symbol: OJH1 125P) will most likely be met and if so an ENTRY ALERT will be issued for this particular put option. But this trade will most likely be brief since the long-term trend (> 1year) and the intermediate-term trend (3 weeks to 1 year) for ORANGE JUICE is up. Thus after prices pull back, at some point in time, prices will trade with the overall major and intermediate trend of the market....UP.
