Trends are now mixed on the daily charts. Dry weather in southern Russia as well as the northern US Great Plains and Canadian Prairies remains a supportive feature in the market although the weather has become old news. Crop size estimates in Russia have been reduced. The Russian weather has been good for production in northern and western areas but is still trending dry in southern areas and into Kazakhstan. The weather in China and Europe is wet and there is potential for reduced quality in Europe. Europe is expecting top yields in some areas but less yield in others and parts of eastern Europe and northern Russia are expecting strong yields. Overnight News: The southern Great Plains should get isolated showers. Temperatures should be above normal. Northern areas should see isolated showers. Temperatures will be near to above normal. The Canadian Prairies should see isolated showers or dry conditions. Temperatures should average near normal. Chart Analysis: Trends in Chicago are mixed. Support is at 690, 677, and 657 December, with resistance at 706, 714, and 733 December. Trends in Kansas City are mixed. Support is at 688, 670, and 659 December, with resistance at 715, 720, and 730 December. Trends in Minneapolis are mixed. Support is at 862, 840, and 830 December, and resistance is at 890, 903, and 915 December. RICE: General Comments: Rice closed higher again yesterday as another tropical system threatened crops in Texas and Louisiana. Hurricane Nicholas came o shore near Houston. The first crop has been largely harvested in Texas and will soon be harvested in Louisiana, but the second crop s still in the field and is still at risk of loss in both states. Nicholas is moving generally to the northeast now. Harvesting continues in Louisiana and Texas and will start to wind down in both states over the next couple of weeks. A delayed harvest is expected in Mississippi and Arkansas but a few producers are starting to harvest now. Yield reports and quality reports have been acceptable to many in Texas and are called good in Louisiana. The harvest pace is expected to be slow due to ongoing showers in both regions and farther into the north. Ideas of average yields are also heard in Arkansas and Mississippi. Overnight News: The Delta should get isolated showers. Temperatures should be near to below normal. Chart Analysis: Trends are mixed to up with objectives of 1381 November. Support is at 1343, 1335, and 1326 November, with resistance at 1370, 1380, and 1390 November. CORN AND OATS: General Comments: Corn was higher. Trends are now mixed on the daily charts but are still down on the weekly charts. Traders are now waiting on the harvest and yield reports. Ideas are that the yield reports will be high and will confirm the USDA production estimates or even find better yields. Most of the elevators along the Mississippi are starting to export again which is good news for nearby demand. Electricity has been restored and the elevators are transloading grain if they are not fully open yet. Another tropical storm is coming to southern Louisiana but should be mostly a big rain event. Winds are expected to be moderate. The weather remains a feature of the trade but is less important now as the Corn is filling kernels and starting to mature. Ideas are that Brazil Corn production could be less than 85 million tons so reduced production estimates are expected in coming reports. Oats were higher yesterday as the weather remains bad for production even with the crop near or in harvest. Overnight News: Chart Analysis: Trends in Corn are mixed. Support is at 513, 504, and 498 December, and resistance is at 524, 530, and 543 December. Trends in Oats are mixed. Support is at 508, 498, and 486 December, and resistance is at 521, 525, and 531 December. SOYBEANS General Comments: Soybeans closed a little lower in Soybeans and in Soybean Meal. Soybean Oil closed higher in part due to the StatsCan estimates showing that Canola production would be much below market expectations. The destruction of Gulf port facilities along the Mississippi River near New Orleans was still a factor in the trade but the elevators are coming on line and exports have started to resume. The hurricane moved onshore in Louisiana a week ago and did extensive damage to the state, including the grain export elevators. The state also lost electrical posser in all affected areas but power to the export elevators is being restored. Another system is in Texas now and is threatening to move into Louisiana with a lot of rain but not so much wind. Overnight News: USDA said that sales of 196,000 tons to unknown destinations and 132,000 tons to China of Soybeans were cancelled. Chart Analysis: Trends in Soybeans are mixed. Support is at 1270, 1263, and 1241 November, and resistance is at 1300, 1306, and 1309 November. Trends in Soybean Meal are mixed. Support is at 336.00, 333.00, and 331.00 October, and resistance is at 342.00, 344.00, and 349.00 October. Trends in Soybean Oil down with objectives of 5480 and 5210 October. Support is at 5520, 5480, and 5420 October, with resistance at 5660, 5730, and 5850 October CANOLA AND PALM OIL General Comments: Palm Oil closed a little higher yesterday. Ideas of strong export demand, especially from India, kept futures higher today. Exports were not strong last month and the trade saw big ending stocks when MPOB released its monthly data last week. Ideas are that Palm Oil got too expensive when compared to the other vegetable oils markets. There are ideas of tight supplies due to labor problems. There are just not enough workers in the fields due to Coronavirus restrictions. Production has also been down to more than offset the export losses so prices have trended higher. Canola closed higher as the harvest is getting ready to start. StatsCan forecast production much below trade expectations. Production ideas are down due to the extreme weather seen in these areas. It remains generally dry and warm in the Prairies. The Prairies crops are in big trouble now due to previous hot and dry weather. Overnight News: Chart Analysis: Trends in Canola are mixed. Support is at 849.00, 830.00, and 823.00 November, with resistance at 900.00, 902.00, and 905.00 November. Trends in Palm Oil are mixed. Support is at 4250, 4150, and 4050 November, with resistance at 4380, 4480, and 4510 November.
