Fundamentals: December corn futures finished yesterday’s session up 5 ¾ cents, trading in a range of 9 ½ cents. The inability to take out contract lows with conviction coupled with concern over cooler temperatures and possibly an early frost, led to moderate short covering from funds. The next two sessions will be pivotal in setting the tone for the start of September. The other sliver of good news was in yesterday’s weekly EIA ethanol report, showing production increased (finally) 15,000 barrels per day. Weekly export sales this morning came in at 856,400 metric tons.
Technicals: Yesterday’s low came within a ½ of a cent from contract lows, spring boarding from that point into the afternoon session.

First resistance remains intact at 381, a conviction close above here opens the door for a run at the gap from August 13th, 392 ¾. We are moving our bias to outright Bullish, a failure to find follow through will neutralize that.

Resistance: 381**, 392 ¾***, 405-407**
Support: 363 ¾-369***, 338 ¾-343**
Fundamentals: Soybeans started yesterday’s session lower but managed to reverse on the back of cooler weather forecasts, raising concerns over an early frost.

Jawboning between U.S. and Chinese trade delegates have turned “softer” but there’s still not much positive news to report on that front. Weekly export sales this morning came in at 448,300 metric tons.
Technicals: Soybeans tripped stops below our support at 854 ½ but failed to breakdown with conviction below that, leading to a relief rally in the afternoon session. The springboard off of technical support was exactly what the bulls needed, leading us to change our bias from....
