Corn traded sideways this week, but short-term it is still under pressure and should see more downside in the coming weeks.  We have slipped back towards the $4.30 level from a high of $4.46 on the September futures earlier this week. 

Good support is seen at $4 on the September futures.

The primary trend is now neutral to bullish. Once this current correction is complete, I expect a re-test of the recent highs of $4.69 on the September futures and later this summer a shot towards our next target of $5 per bushel.


September soybeans had a quiet week as we hovered around the $9 range. The charts suggest more downward pressure and consolidation barring any unforeseen weather or political issues.

Overhead resistance is still pegged at the $9.35 to $9.50 level on the front month contract, while support is seen at the $8.50 level.

Indicators are still mixed, and the primary trend is still down.


Our red sell signal on the daily chart last week suggests more downside probing. I am looking for support at the $4.70 – $4.80 level on September before we resume a move higher.

I am expecting more downside in the coming weeks, providing there are no surprises in the news. We have a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) report due on July 11 which could also impact prices.

Indicators are positive with a primary trend neutral to bullish.  Solid support is now at $4.70 on the September futures while overhead resistance remains at the recent highs of $5.50 – $5.60 also on September.
