Sep Wheat - Steady & Mixed
Dec Corn - 1 to 2 Higher
Nov Beans - Steady to 1 Higher
August and November beans printed a narrow range/inside day today on the daily bar. This means today was the most narrow range of at least the previous 7 days. Actually, I had to count back to June 12th to find a more narrow price range day.
This narrow bar signals that tomorrow should likely be an expanded range either way - fitting that tomorrow is report day. The July Beans contract was up +29.75 today. Therefore, the July/November soybean spread marked new highs again today!
This is bullish soybean demand. August and November Soybeans are also in the process of building an inverted head & shoulders pattern, with the current correction being the right shoulder.
Tomorrow's quarterly stocks and acreage report is a complete wildcard of course. We will just have to let the dust settle afterwards. Additionally, keep in mind that this week and the next 2 weeks are historically the most volatile (big ranges) out of the entire year and I doubt this year will be any different - one thing is for certain - the grains will not be quiet

December Corn sank a few more cents today as forecast rains are aiding and abetting the fund shorts game plan. I'm still calling this selloff a corrective wave #2. The number 2 wave can be exceptionally deep (greater than 78%). This leg is a 75% retracement, so far.

Support in the continuation (now Sep) wheat chart is holding at about 665 for now. You will see the red neckline across the chart horizontally. I have no idea what to expect tomorrow except volatility.
Prices in the grains could go down/down, down/up or up/up. Here is the daily wheat chart.
August Crude Oil is continuing to trade sideways back and forth between 67.00 and 72.75. Of course, it is building up energy for a larger move, eventually. I am counting the sideways corrective action as A-B-C-X-A-B-C - 2 A-B-C's linked by another leg. In a down correction the X leg is always up. Check out the updated crude chart.
