Grains - Market Recap and Closing Prices

Posted: May 24, 2023, 3:57 p.m.

Corn futures were able to stage a nice rally off last week’s lows.  July futures were the leader in today’s trade, finishing the day 9 ¾ cents higher to 587 ¼.  This was right in line with our daily Grain Express which was sent out to clients before the open, stating that if the Bulls can defend 569-572, “it could warrant an extension of the recovering rally, with the next objective for the Bulls being 586-588.”.


Soybeans were less exciting than corn after severe whiplash in the first two days of the week.  Significant support remains intact from 1299-1310, we discussed this being a pocket of value in last Wednesday’s episode of the 2-Minute Drill.  The market failed against our resistance levels to start the week (1345-1348)which has the market drifting in space.  That Support pocket from 1299-1310 is still significant, but there was more conviction on the first and second test, a third one could be enough to break it down. 

Wheat continues to be a thorn in our side.  July Chicago wheat futures gave back yesterday’s gains, trading 16 cents lower today to settle at 606 ¼. The Bulls want to defend this week’s low as well as the psychologically significant $6.00 handle.
