Arkansas Daily Grain Report

Soybean Comment

November beans were lower again today. The chart continues to look quite negative. The next support for prices is at $11.40. With the next USDA report a week from today, expect price movement to be volatile as traders position themselves ahead of the next report. USDA says that 64% of the crop is in good to excellent condition, but the crop is behind schedule, with only 39% of acres setting pods, compared to an average of 51%.

Corn Comment

December corn prices were lower again today. While the market continues to slide, losses are getting smaller as the market waits for the USDA report next week. There is beginning to be concern over the effect of dry conditions in western Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska is having on this year’s crop. While the bears continue to dominate the market, we could be poised for a rally if this proves to have a significant effect on this year’s yield potential in the largest corn producing state. The market continues to maintain support at $4.50. Upside objective for this market would be about $4.80 and then $5.00 should the market turn higher.

Cotton Comment

While grain prices continue to take a beating, cotton prices have remained relatively strong. This market has established a firm floor at 82-cents, and a ceiling at 89.5-cents. Today’s strong gains took the market back toward the top of the range. The December contract continues to hold in this tight range despite large global supplies, and private forecasts saying the U.S. crop will get bigger in the August Supply and Demand Report.

Rice Comment

September rice futures posted huge losses in today’s trade. The market charted a wide bearish reversal on Monday and selling accelerated today. Several layers of support were violated on the way down, with the next technical support near $15.14. Tough competition on the export market is keeping a lid on the market despite a smaller crop. Cheaper Asian origin rice is making it hard for U.S. rice to compete. The USDA crop condition ratings were not changed much from last week to this week, with 70% of the crop in good to excellent condition.
