    AFB Grain-Soybean Close: Soybeans Post Modest Gains, Wheat, Corn Under Pressure

    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    Soybean Comment
    Soybeans retraced early losses to close with gains. The rebound was spurred by strong Chinese demand and a positive export report. Initial weakness came from improving South American weather and economic concerns including the fiscal cliff situation in Washington. This has created a negative situation which led to technical selling by funds and other investors. Soybeans ended the day on a strong note while corn and wheat were lower. Old crop January found support just above $14.50, and area that was resistance early last week.

    Grain Comment
    Wheat closed lower despite weekend reports of Saudi Arabia making purchases from several sources including the U.S. Worsening crop conditions in the Plains also failed to stimulate the market. It appears wheat will need to see substantially more export demand to sustain current price levels.

    Corn export inspections were below last week, and lower than anticipated. Coupled with technical selling it pushed old crop contracts toward recent support, between $7.08 and $7.15. A close below this area would signal additional downside pressure.
