Time Frame: Several weeks

Why We Like It:
DBA has broken a downtrend line that began on 1/6/10. The ETF has struggled with a secondary downtrend line but I think its only a matter of time before DBA makes another push higher and breaks through it. DBA also appears to be forming a higher low on its daily chart. Today the ETF sold off to its 20-day SMA from above. I am expecting this support hold and for DBA to make a run up towards its 200-day SMA which is currently just over $25.00. Our most aggressive target is $24.95 while our first target is $24.60. We will use a tight stop at $23.25 which below May's lows.

Suggested Position: Long DBA stock at current levels

Suggested Position: Buy August $23.00 CALLS, current ask $1.20
