TECHNICALS

November Beans:  Seasonally beans tend to begin to establish their lows, but so far the market has yet to do so.  The market needs a close over $12.65 to get back on track for a sideways trading range.  However, the reversal from $12.31 may have legs, and if pullbacks towards $12.40 hold the rally could extend higher.  

first support:  $12.42/$12.45

resistance:  $12.55/$12.60

possible range:  much the same or lower

December Meal:  Hit a target low at $320.00 but has not bounced very far from it.  Trendline support on a further break crosses at $318.00/$319.00 and if we go there think it would hold.  Would look for prices to likely head into a $320.00-$340.00 trading range, and if needing to price this is still a good opportunity.  

first support: $319.50/$320.00

resistance:  $324.00/$325.00

possible range: much the same

December Soyoil:  Bullish price action with a quick rally over the targeted high of 6020c which is also the 100-day moving average.  The close was constructive, near the high of the PM session at 6179c.  Would look to now target 62c-6250c, which could keep beans nicely supported as well.  A pullback to 60c would be a buying opportunity.

first support: 6050c/6080c

resistance:  62c-6220c

possible range: 6150c - 6220c or higher

December Corn:  Trading range from $5.30 - $5.48, with trendline support today crossing at the low of $5.34.  The market retains a decent bid, and is currently sitting in a small uptrend channel.  The market has the potential to target $5.45/$5.50, and eventually hit $5.60 if trade continues to settle over $5.35.

first support: $5.33/$5.35

resistance:  $5.44/$5.45

possible range: much the same 

December Wheat:  Trading range is from $7.25-$7.65, and a pullback towards $7.40 is holding.  In the big picture the pullback from the high trade at $7.63 1/2 is fairly shallow which is constructive for the market, and friendly price action for the chart.  Would look to therefore challenge $7.55/$7.60 again, as a weaker market would have already fallen below $7.20.

first support: $7.40/$7.42

resistance:  $7.52/$7.55

possible range: much the same 

DECEMBER MEAL

The downtrend continues with new lows at $320.10.  The market is now oversold with an RSI at 28%, (anything under 30% is trending into oversold territory), but that is not low enough to necessitate a correction.  The market has yet to put in a solid trade indicating that the season low is placed.  The ADX is strengthening at 27, (anything over 25 is a stronger trend), indicating that sellers will be there on rallies.  Technically the market is weak but could begin to see a rebound from $320.00 with a rally back to at least $335.00/$340.00.  Would look for the beginning of a $320.00-$340.00 trading range.

Illuminating the value of technical research

On behalf of a commodity producer organization, WPI evaluated the outputs from a project that featured a $5 million investment into technical research over multiple years. WPI’s team captured the results of this extensive effort and synthesized them for presentation to the organization’s governing board; among the findings uncovered and presented for the first time was the development of genomic traits proven, via rigorous testing, to provide crop yield advantages of 50 percent or more to U.S. farmers in times of drought. Capturing measurable results from long-term efforts can be challenging. Educating clients on the dynamics of success measurement when quantifiable results are not readily available requires deep client-consultant collaboration and an ability to consider both near- and long-term client aspirations with market/policy dynamics – attributes that WPI brings to every consulting engagement.
