July Corn:

Looking to buy with a close above $3.80. If this is the break out to the upside they should close making new highs above $3.80. The Corn crop is far from excellent. The yield loss will be greater then anticipated when this new crop comes to the market.

July SoyBeans:

Hold all long $9.20 calls and look to sell them for 35 cents or greater. (Long from 12 cents - on 5/30/17)

South American crop is large and could put pressure on prices. Will we see 10 dollars within the next month? I doubt it but a close above $9.40 is bullish and should lead to some short covering. Globally the prices should not go over $10.50 unless the U.S. crop has a yield loss 7-10%. That is possible but the current situation suggest a weather premium is needed to propel the market above $10.50. For the time being look for the bounce to $9.50.

Augest Hogs:

I am Bullish to say the least, looking for them to make new contract highs by the end of the week. Stay long look for $90.00. The 20 day moving average comes in just under $80.00. A good place for a STOP is $78.00.

Augest RBOB:

New recommendation:Buy at the market place your STOP at $1.4850. A Seasonal bounce should come into the market within the next week. Two weeks ago I exited taking profits at $1.5850 looking for another leg up. Buying Breaks.

July Cocoa:

European demand should help with prices but for the time being things look negative. Avoid
