Corn (December)

Yesterdays Close: December corn futures finished yesterdays session down 10 cents, trading in a range of 13 cents. Funds were estimated sellers of 28,000 contracts.

Fundamentals: Improving weather forecast triggered a technical breakdown in yesterdays session but does little to change the fact that there are a lot of question marks hanging over this years production numbers. Though we could see things get worse before they get better, we believe there is longer term fundamental support near the low end of the range. The bulls would like to see demand pick up; this has been a big headwind for the market. Export sales yesterday morning came in at 333,000 metric tons, a hair below the low end of expectations.

Soybeans (November)

Yesterdays Close:November soybean futures finished yesterdays session up of a cent, trading in a range of 10 cents. Funds were estimated sellers of 1,000 contracts.

Fundamentals: Soybeans were the surprise of the day, rallying off of technical support on little new news. Export sales yesterday morning came in at 326,300 metric tons, within the range of expectations. As with corn, there may be a longer-term fundamental backdrop with this years production numbers being a big unknown, but the lack of progress will likely prevent us from really taking off. For these reasons, we are looking for more of a range-bound trade, presenting opportunities to both the bull and bear camp.

Technicals: Our 3-star technical support pocket held in yesterdays session; we have had that listed as 887 -891 . This pocket represents a key retracement, the 50-day moving average, and other previously important price points including the lows from July 5th, 8th, and 9th.

Wheat (September)

Yesterdays Close: September wheat futures finished yesterdays session down 11 cents, trading in a range of 12 cents. Funds were estimated sellers of 7,000 contracts.

Fundamentals: Wheat futures rolled over hard on what has been a developing bearish technical pattern. Bearish technicals coupled with ample global supply and dismal demand have been a big hurdle for the bull camp over the past month. Weekly export sales came in at 347,300 metric tons, within the range of expectations. Our bias remains outright Bearish.

Technicals: The bearish Head & Shoulders technical pattern continues to play out, we have been discussing this for some time now. There is minor support....Get our full report (outlook/market bias/ technical levels) emailed to you every day, click HERE or email
