Wheat Comment

Wheat prices closed lower today as price continue to follow corn. Wheat saw support earlier in the week from a good export report; however, the recent reopening of the Argentine port will likely limit U.S. exports to key western hemisphere countries. Look for large supplies and weak demand to continue to pressure prices lower.

Corn Comment

Corn prices closed lower today despite a good export sales report. While export demand remains strong for corn the market continues to focus on the large crop that will be harvested in the coming weeks. Look for the bears to continue to dominate this market despite prices being oversold.

Cotton Comment

December cotton posted sharp losses today as the market violated support at the recent low of 67.10 cents. The market is now trading at its lowest level since October 2009, and below the 10-year average of 74.38 cents and the 20 –year average of 69.20 cents. The crop remains in good condition and the potential for a large crop remains likely. 2015 acreage is already being questioned with prices at nearly 5-year lows.

Rice Comment

Rice futures ended lower again today. The rice crop remains in good shape, with the percentage of rice in Arkansas in good to excellent condition improved two percentage points from last week to 64%. Slow exports and large world stocks are also limiting the upside potential. September has support at $12.78 ½, and November has support at $13.01.
