Soybean Comment

Soybeans were higher across the board with old crop contracts posting double digit gains. Gains were registered despite a stronger dollar. Not export sales were almost double market expectations. Another big sale of 110,000 metric tonnes was notched today’s daily report. A slightly smaller Brazilians crop estimate also was supportive. July climbed also was supportive. July climbed above $14 and remains within a sideways pattern between $14.25 and $13.40. November remains in a 4 month downtrend with resistance around $12.25. Support is the recent low of $11.86. A close outside this range would suggest further movement in the direction of the breakout.

Grain Comment
Wheat futures posted solid gains today. Weekly export reports were a mixed bag, with old crop sales exceeding expectations but new crop sales were a little disappointing. Looking at the charts, July was up sharply, completely closing the gap that was left on the way down Monday. Resistance begins between $7.35 and $7.36, though.

Corn Comments
Corn like beans was higher across the across the board with old crop contracts making double digit gains. Old crop corn exports were barely a third of the previous week and well below expectations. Obviously, this didn’t impact futures as traders pushed old crop higher on tightening availability of 2012 supplies and a slow start to the 2013 crop. December is holding in last week’s extended trading range of $5.70 to $5.17.
