Basically scale trading is buying a commodity future when it is in the lowest 1/3 or 1/4 of it's historical range, uaually 10-20 years. The plan is to add more as it drops and set sequential buy and sell orders at certain intervals, hopefully to catch oscillations in the price on the way down and up. Must plan carefully to be able to bankroll the inevitable bottom out. Will incur deep drawdowns at times, so many will not like this method.

Currently looking at lumber, sugar, cotton (CT may have appreciated too much lately). OJ was coming down but bugged out the last few days.
