The RRN2(Mkt) ended Higher(Cond) for March(Month). Compared to February's 14.72(Prev Close), the market ended March at 15.04(Month Close), that being 66%(Pct Range) off of 14.08(Month Low) to 15.52(Month High).

In comparing the February/March closes for each of the last 22 years(Total Years), Scenario found that the July Rough Rice(CBOT) also closed higher in March than February in 9(Cond Years) of those years. Of those 9, RRN went on to exceed the March high within the next 2 months in 8 years(Action Years) or 89%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the RRN should exceed 15.52(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 8 years) a potential move toward 17.67(Average Objective).

Of those 20, LCM went on to penetrate the March low within the next 2 months in 17 years(Action Years) or 85%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the LCM should penetrate 116.100(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 17 years) a potential move toward 108.112(Average Objective).

August Live Cattle(CME)
The LCQ2(Mkt) ended Lower(Cond) for March(Month). Compared to February's 129.680(Prev Close), the market ended March at 119.680(Month Close), that being 2%(Pct Range) off of 119.500(Month Low) to 130.450(Month High).

Of those 20, LCQ went on to penetrate the March low within the next 2 months in 17 years(Action Years) or 85%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the LCQ should penetrate 119.500(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 17 years) a potential move toward 113.187(Average Objective).

Of those 21, JOU went on to penetrate the March low within the next 2 months in 18 years(Action Years) or 86%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the JOU should penetrate 158.00(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 18 years) a potential move toward 146.36(Average Objective).

July Coffee "C"(ICE)
The KCN2(Mkt) ended Lower(Cond) for March(Month). Compared to February's 206.00(Prev Close), the market ended March at 185.00(Month Close), that being 25%(Pct Range) off of 177.30(Month Low) to 207.60(Month High).

Of those 23, CCN went on to penetrate the March low within the next 2 months in 21 years(Action Years) or 91%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the CCN should penetrate 2196(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 21 years) a potential move toward 1929(Average Objective).

September Cocoa(ICE)
The CCU2(Mkt) ended Lower(Cond) for March(Month). Compared to February's 2367(Prev Close), the market ended March at 2262(Month Close), that being 20%(Pct Range) off of 2213(Month Low) to 2455(Month High).

In comparing the February/March closes for each of the last 45 years(Total Years), Scenario found that the September Cocoa(ICE) also closed lower in March than February in 22(Cond Years) of those years. Of those 22, CCU went on to penetrate the March low within the next 2 months in 19 years(Action Years) or 86%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the CCU should penetrate 2213(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 19 years) a potential move toward 1953(Average Objective).

July Lumber(CME)
The LBN2(Mkt) ended Lower(Cond) for March(Month). Compared to February's 289.6(Prev Close), the market ended March at 263.8(Month Close), that being 0%(Pct Range) off of 263.7(Month Low) to 295.7(Month High).

Of those 19, LBN went on to penetrate the March low within the next 2 months in 16 years(Action Years) or 84%(Pct) of the time.

Therefore, the historical odds are high that the LBN should penetrate 263.7(Scenario Objective) by no later than the end of May. If it does so, Scenario would further project (based on normalizing those previous 16 years) a potential move toward 238.9(Average Objective).
