Soybean Comment

November soybeans gave back part of yesterday’s gains and closed below the key $13 mark. Slight crop deterioration was confirmed by USDA yesterday, with the percentage of the crop in good to excellent slipping to 64%. Hot, dry forecasts have traders expecting more significant damage to yield potential to occur this week. Additional resistance between about $13.20 and $13.35 will be a tough challenge as we move closer to harvest. Increased acreage in South America could also limit the upside potential.

Corn Comment

Corn prices fell off of yesterday’s 4-week high. News from the ProFarmer crop tour of the potential for a large crop continues to weigh on the market; however, weather forecast over the next weeks remains bullish for prices limiting losses. Prices will need weather to remain dry to dampen the reports coming in from the ProFarmer tour. Corn prices bumped trend line resistance yesterday and failed to follow through with gains today. Price have weak support in the $4.75 range, expect prices to continue their fall if the crop tour continues to report the yields they are seeing now.

Cotton Comment

Cotton prices plunged lower today, with the October and December contracts closing down the limit. Sharp gains over the last week moved this market into oversold territory signaling a technical selloff in cotton. While the U.S. crop conditions continue to worsen, overall global supplies remain large putting downward pressure on cotton.

Rice Comment

Rice futures posted solid gains today, with September futures moving to the highest level in more than two weeks. However, November charted a bearish key reversal in Monday’s trade, and today saw the contract find resistance again at Monday’s high of $15.79 ½. In the meantime, prices continue to consolidate in about a $1 trading range between $15 and $16. The condition of this year’s rice crop continues to look good, but farmers are worried that cool, cloudy conditions could negatively impact grain fill during heading.
