Grains Swing is a new but also old strategy. Grains Swing is a trading system we developed in 2009 and was re-designed in 2014 based on the new pit opening times in the Grain markets. Trading the Grains offers us diversity from the financials and are less affected by fiscal and monetary policy from the central banks.
On April 8, 2013, the grain markets changed the opening time from 10:30 am EST to 9:30 am EST. The Grains strategies were modified to account for this change in opening time. This is a strategy that works well back to 1984 as the performance reports show (below video) as we test it on electronic and pit markets.
