A mixed morning in the grain markets as we enter a holiday trade and the week of December options expiration

Corn

Technicals (December)

Corn futures have traded on both sides of unchanged to start the shortened Thanksgiving week, which happens to coincide with December options expiration on Friday.  We wouldn’t be surprised to see a choppy trade, with the Bears still holding an advantage on the chart. 

Bias: Neutral

Resistance:  484-486***, 499-502 1/2****

Pivot: 472-476 

Support: 460-464 1/2**, 442-450***

Seasonal Tendencies

Below is a look at historical seasonal averages (updated each Monday) VS today’s prices (black line).

Soybeans 

Technicals (January)

January soybean futures broke through 4-star support on Friday which helped keep pressure on prices to start the week, trading to our next support pocket from 1323-1327.  That pocket has held which has helped pop prices back to 1346-1350, which will now act as a pivot pocket.  If the Bulls can chew through this pocket, we could see additional momentum aid in the recovery from the Thursday/Friday selloff.  We like leaning on the Bullish side from these levels and Bearish side near $14.  

Bias: Bullish/Neutral

Resistance: 1365-1370*** 1398-1400****

Pivot: 1346-1350

Support: 1323-1327***

Seasonal Tendencies

Wheat

Technicals (December)

Wheat futures are on pace for their 5th consecutive day of losses, if realized that would be the longest losing streak since August.  Support comes in from 540-547 1/2, a break and close below that pocket and there’s not a lot of meaningful levels left.  A shortened holiday week coupled with options expiration may have an impact on prices this week. 

Bias: Neutral/Bullish

Resistance: 582-585***, 601 3/4-604 1/2***

Pivot: 568 1/2570

Support: 540-547 1/2***

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.
