Full Moon Over Location

Opening Calls:

Corn: 1 to 2 higher 

Beans: 1 to 3 higher 

After yesterday's collapse, both markets are showing a little recovery. After a positive forecast for the dry parts of Iowa and the rest of the Midwest, private analyst yield projections came in and look to challenge previous records. This caused an 8-9 cent sell-off. Bears look to have the momentum and technicals seem poised to challenge $3.00 on the Board of Trade. 

Yesterday, soybeans fell 13-14 cents for similar reasons. With an ample supply and a positive outlook for new crop production, this bean harvest could very well be the largest ever. To land back on top of $9.00 futures, the trade will need to hear of production problems later this month coupled with an increase in Chinese buying.
