Futures table - March 31, 2017

On every monthly post I will highlight a Futures trade. The below trade happened to occur on the last day of the month and remains relevant so I am choosing to share this particular trade.

On March 31, we received a 5 timeframe Ichimoku Sell email alert for Soybean Meal Futures. Here is the alert:

Prior to this setup, we kept receiving SELL email alerts for Soybean Meal Futures, however, we were not getting the minimum Reward-Risk ratio of 3:1 based on the charts. At the time of this email alert, this instrument setup in a manner where we could take the pullback to the IMTF™ resistance and get our desired Reward-Risk ratio. As you can see from the chart below, this instrument has since taken off to the downside and we are still in this trade and remain in “Preserve Mode”
