    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    Soybean Comment
    Soybeans again rallied from early declines to close mixed. The market was pressured early by improving crop conditions in South America and technical selling on demand concerns. Positive outside markets, including higher equities and crude oil, also provided support. For now January had resistance near $15.

    Grain Comment
    Wheat futures continued lower today. The selloff began yesterday when USDA raised its U.S. carryout estimate by 7% from the November report. World stocks were raised by 1.6%. July looks headed for a retest of support at $8.25.

    Corn continued lower, although losses were trimmed after the Fed confirmed a new bond buying program for 2013. Slow export demand and reduced ethanol production continue to weigh on the market. March futures are being pushed toward support around $7.10.
