After this year’s Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks aren't the only ones kicking off 2014 on a high note. This January, the DJ-UBS Commodity Index scored a slight gain after ending 2013 in the red, down 10%. This recent move up fuels one question: Is the end in sight for the relentless drubbing of raw materials over the last few years?

Spring hasn't even arrived officially, yet some of us are already feeling the three "izies" of the season: hazy, fuzzy and dizzy. Yet it's not my hay fever that has my teeth on edge, but the suffocating cloud of mainstream financial news regarding long-term commodity trends.

On Feb. 6, the World Bank released its Global Economic Prospects' Commodity Market Outlook. The 26-page document is a great read if you've got an afternoon to spare (or want to cure insomnia). But for the rest of us, this short version should do: Commodities across the board should "ease marginally" in 2013 so long as a boatload of factors play out as expected. Multiple plotlines is fun when you're kid. But when it comes to futures markets, the goal is to narrow, not expand the scope of probable outcomes.

Will the Long & Winding Commodities Road Lead Back to a Bull Market?

If the year 2012 had a theme song for key commodity markets, it could be the Beatles' "Long and Winding Road" -- emphasis on the word "winding." And, according to a recent Bloomberg News article, the disjointed efforts among futures put a major crimp in the idea that the trend is your friend. But for EWI's chief commodity analyst and Futures Junctures Service editor Jeffrey Kennedy, there is no such thing as a "lack of a trend."

Schoolchildren may be out for the winter break, but class is always in session here at Elliott Wave International. On the syllabus for today is the Elliott wave pattern known as the contracting triangle – and a developing trade set-up in cotton. It goes without saying that, because contracting triangles precede the final wave of a sequence, they make for ideal trade set-ups to position for the powerful thrusts that follow. This reliable trait of triangles makes them a favorite among technical traders.

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
