Soybean Comment

Soybean rallied back late to close with only modest losses. After being down much of the day prices moved higher late but failed to put in gains today. Price continue to be supported by strong demand, which is limiting losses despite the huge crop.

Corn Comment

Corn prices closed up again today. We again saw speculative buying support prices ahead of the holiday. This market will need a positive export sales report on Friday if this rally is to continue. Prices have resistance at recent highs near $3.86.

Cotton Comment

Cotton futures broke out of their recent trading range and surged higher today. December and March both tested the waters above 60 cents in today’s trade. A weaker dollar and increased U.S. consumer spending in October combined to give the market a much-needed boost.

Rice Comment

Both January and March rice futures contracts charted bullish key reversals. This signals that further gains are possible. January will have resistance at $12.61 and March will find resistance at $12.86. Rice futures gained nearly 70 cents last week. News of a huge Iraqi tender for U.S. rice gave the market a much-needed boost last week. The US harvest is all but complete, and the market has a big crop to move. Ample global supplies will also continue to limit the upside.
