Fundamentals: December corn futures printed their highest price since August 12th (USDA report day) as funds continued to cover short positions ahead of tomorrow’s WASDE report and the looming freeze/snowstorm. Corn production estimates range from 13.446-13.833 billion bushels. Harvested Acres estimates come in from 80.80-82.02 million acres. Yield estimates range from 166.0-168.7 bushels per acre.

Chicago Wheat (December)
Fundamentals: Chicago wheat futures took off yesterday, in tandem with the broader grain complex. Short covering ahead of tomorrow’s USDA report coupled with weather concerns in the norther grain belt helped kick of the buying spree in grains yesterday.
Technicals: Chicago made a run at our resistance pocket from 500-506 ¼, this pocket represents the psychologically significant $5.00 handle, the breakdown point from the August 12th USDA report, along with the 100 and 200 day moving average.
