Figure # 5.9 - After breaking out of a short-term consolidation May Soybeans surged to a high of $6.91 ½ before closing at $6.73 ½, (E). From this high point the Soybeans entered a correction phase that lasted ten days and retraced all the way back to the previous consolidation—(F)—area before staging a two-day bounce. Soybeans remained in a choppy sideways trend for several days and never offered another trading opportunity.
