    AFB Grain-Soybean Close: Soybeans And Corn Lower, Wheat Took A Beating,

    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    Soybean Comment
    Soybeans closed down slightly despite a 10 million bushel increase in the projected domestic stocks fell the same amount to just 130 million bushels. Even positive outside markets did little but limit downside movement. Soybean futures remain in a short term uptrend with January resistance just above $14.50.

    Grain Comment
    Wheat futures took a beating today after the USDA raised its U.S. carryout estimate by 7% from the November report. World stocks were raised by 1.6%. July found support at $8.37 today, but a move below that level would likely signal a retest of support at $8.25.

    Corn Comments
    Corn traded to both sides of yesterday’s close before ending the day slightly lower. USDA left U.S. corn numbers unchanged, which have the market an early boost. Expectations were for reduced exports and a slight increase in projected stocks. USDA did lower the projected price range by 15 cents on the low end and 25 cents on the high end to $6.80 to $8.00. Expect that range to decline further as we progress through the marketing year. March has support at $7.10.
