Grain Express

Corn (July)


Fundamentals: Corn futures rolled over yesterday, thanks to friendly weather throughout the Midwest, allowing farmers to get the crop in the ground. As stated previously, any wet weather concerns should be taken with a grain of salt, considering the precedent set by last years weather and end crop. Planting progress was released after the close, that the US corn crop is 27% planted. Expectations were for 22%. The 5-year average is 20% complete. Weekly export inspections came in at 1.1mmt, a strong number.


Technicals: The market broke down yesterday and threatened contract lows at 309. This is the line and the sand that all market participants are watching for on a closing bass. A break and close below here likely leads to a dip below they psychologically significant $3.00 handle.


Bias: Neutral/Bearish

Previous Session Bias: Neutral/Bearish


Resistance: 330-333****, 343 ¼-344 ¾**

Pivot: 316-317 ¾

Support: 308 ¼-310*** 298 ¾-301 ¼**

Soybeans (July)

Yesterday’s planting progress report showed the US crop is 8% planted, in line with expectations and ahead of the 5-year average, 4%.


Technicals: Soybeans avoided a technical breakdown yesterday but are not in the clear just yet. First support was tested and held, 829-834. A break and close below here and we likely see new contract lows, potentially taking us below the psychologically significant $8.00 handle. Resistance comes in from 857-861 ¼. Consecutive closes above this pocket would Neutralize the chart, until then, the Bears remain in control.
