Corn (March)

Fundamentals: March corn futures finished yesterday’s session little changed as market participants continue to look for new news on the wires. Those wires will probably be pretty bare until we get to next week’s USDA report, out on December 10th. Until then, our focus will be on crop developments in South America, along with money flow and technicals.

Technicals: The market has settled into our resistance pocket; we have had that defined as 381 ¼-382 ¾.

Soybeans (January)

Fundamentals: The market seems more optimistic this morning on talks that the December 15th tariffs could get kicked down the road, that has been a bigger concern for the market(s) than a Phase 1 Deal.

Kansas City Wheat (March)

Technicals: Kansas City wheat futures have softened up some but are managing to hold 4-star technical support, we have defined that as 431-434.

Cotton (March)

Technicals: March cotton futures broke down yesterday, along with trade optimism. Those headlines reversed this morning which are offering support to the market.

The bears have an advantage until we see consecutive closes back above … Please sign up for a Free Trial at Blue Line Futures to have our entire technical outlook, actionable bias and proprietary levels emailed to you each day.
