Potential Turning Point For Corn

Last week's Weekly corn chart was left with a "dragonfly doji" on the chart. If you don't understand Japanese candlestick jargon, it's a week where the market ran out of sellers. This is noted by the week's open and closing prices being near the upper end of the past week's trading range with a long tail. This is a fairly reliable technical indicator that shows up at the end of downtrends. In this case it's appearing at the end of an eight week downtrend off the September high. The market found support exactly at a September swing low point of 3.36. This is a positive development for the corn market but upside potential is probably limited. Resistance begins in the low 3.50's with another layer near 3.60.
