Soybean Bull Call Spread
There is a trade opportunity based on potential M.E.T. breakout in the Soybean futures market. The Stochastic indicator is showing strong Momentum to the upside. The Trend Seeker is currently down, though with a weak ranking. The MACD indicator has shifted bullish already.
A break of the 1/05/18 session high (987’6) triggers an entry to the upside. The futures margin requirement and the potential risk are relatively high; let’s anticipate the breakout by entering a bull call spread position. This strategy will reduce the risk and require no margin requirement. The potential stop loss is a break of the recent lows near 966’0. The potential upside target is the potential resistance level near 1035’0.

Maximum Profit: $2,150 ($3,000 – $850), minus the commission & fees.
