Figure # 5.12 - September Cocoa staged a strong rally in early July, but the subsequent futures market collapse was even more dramatic. One day after peaking on the July 10 swing trade date, (E), Cocoa began to pull back for the high. Twelve days later the futures market traded below the (C) to (D) Reaction swing strategy that started it all back on June 26. The futures market never threatened the July 10 high at (E).
