Soybeans continued to march higher in the overnight and early morning trade, how much more upside is left?

Corn

News

  • Friday’s Quarterly Stocks Estimate
    • 1.429 billion bushels
  • With Friday being end of month and end of quarter, that may play a role in price action through the remainder of the week.

Technicals (December)

Corn futures had a “surge” higher around 2am, trading up to 485 1/2, the highest price since September 12th.  Our resistance pocket from 489-491 remains intact as the first upside target for the Bull camp.  We are starting to lean a little more favorable on near term price action as we approach end of month and end of quarter.  The downside risk is fairly well defined in our opinion and with volatility relatively low there are ways to get limited risk exposure in the options market.  Trading is not a one size fits all, so feel free to reach out to our trade desk to discuss strategies suitable for you. 

Bias: Neutral/Bullish

Resistance: 489-491***, 502-506 1/2***

Pivot:  472-476 

Support: 460-464 1/2**

Soybeans

News

  • Friday’s Quarterly Stocks Estimate
    • 242 million bushels
  • With Friday being end of month and end of quarter, that may play a role in price action through the remainder of the week.

Technicals (November)

Soybean futures are continuing to work higher in the early morning trade posting a high of 1313 1/4 in the early morning trade, roughly 30 cents off the lows of the week which were posted on Monday, in our 4-star support pocket from 1280-1285.  The ability to defend support moved our bias from bearish territory into bullish territory.  As mentioned in yesterday’s report, if the Bulls can continue to defend our pivot pocket our next upside objective would be 1322-1328.

Bias: Bullish/Neutral

Resistance:  1322-1328****, 1350-1355***

Pivot: 1300-1304

Support: 1280-1285****, 1247-1257***

Seasonal Tendencies

Below is an updated look at seasonal averages for November soybeans.  Seasonal tendencies have shown weakness through the back half of September for the 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 year averages, illustrated in the chart below.

Wheat

News

  • Friday’s Quarterly Stocks Estimate
    • 1.772 billion bushels
  • With Friday being end of month and end of quarter, that may play a role in price action through the remainder of the week.

Technicals (December)

Wheat futures tested but failed against technical resistance yesterday which we’ve outlined as 595-599 1/2.  That failure has set prices back near our pivot pocket from 585-587.  If the Bulls can achieve a close above that resistance pocket, we would look for a retest of the more signification resistance pocket from 612-616.  That pocket is more of an inflection point for prices, a move above here could spark a bigger short covering rally. 

Bias: Neutral/Bullish

Resistance: 595-599 1/2***, 612-616****

Pivot: 585-587

Support: 570**

Seasonal Tendencies

Below is an updated look at seasonal averages for December Chicago wheat.  We are inching closer to a seasonal low (based on historical tendencies).  Will that play out again this year? TBD.

Performance Disclaimer

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
