    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    Grain Comment

    Wheat posted across the board gains today. The crop has gotten off to the worst start since USDA began releasing crop condition reports. This week’s report is not expected to show any improvement. If July doesn’t hold support at Friday’s low, it will create the possibility of a retest of support near $8.25.

     

    Corn Comments
    Corn was stronger than beans as the early rally was maintained into the close. December honored support at $7.05 and is trading back toward resistance at $7.55 to $7.75. Producers should use this rebound to add to 2012 crop sales. 2013 December has resistance at around $6.40 and then $6.65. There does not appear to be a strong chance of the market making new highs without fresh fundamentals.




    Soybean Comments
    Soybeans got a good boost from outside markets as the investment dollars reacted to favorable reports out of Europe. Positive housing data was also a factor. Old crop soybeans wavered around $14 and will need to see additional export demand. The market will have to close substantially higher to reverse the current downtrend. While the market appears to be oversold, it won’t take much to correct that. New crop November will need to close above the downside breakout point around $13.25.
