WHEAT
General Comments Wheat was higher on news that Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh had both bought US Wheat. The news showed that the US is very competitive in the world market. The upside was limited as the market started to look ahead to the next round of USDA reports on Thursday. The reports last month were bearish for prices, and traders are worried about bearish data again this week. Firm prices extend from Russia to Australia on reduced world production. It remains very dry in Australia, and yield and production estimates continue to drop well below those estimated by USDA. It is reported to be wet and cold in Siberia, but planting conditions are reported to be improved near the Black Sea. Harvest has been difficult in parts of the Canadian Prairies due to snow and cold weather. Bullish traders think it is just a matter of time before world buyers turn to the US as the other major exporters would be out of Wheat for export, but for now the buyers are looking everywhere they can for other origins and are trying to avoid US Wheat. The weather in the US is improved for planting the next Winter Wheat crop as much of the Great Plains has seen rains in the last couple of weeks. More rain is possible later this week.
Overnight News: The southern Great Plains should get showers this week and drier weather this weekend. Temperatures should be near to below normal. Northern areas should see showers most of the week, then drier weather. Temperatures should be neear to below normal. The Canadian Prairies should see mostly dry weather. Temperatures should average below normal. Bangladesh bought 120,000 tons of US HRS Wheat.
Chart Analysis: Trends in Chicago are mixed. Support is at 510, 505, and 500 December, with resistance at 525, 527, and 531 December. Trends in Kansas City are mixed. Support is at 516, 507, and 499 December, with resistance at 529, 531, and 534 December. Trends in Minneapolis are mixed to up with objectives of 605, 629, and 654 December. Support is at 586, 584, and 582 December, and resistance is at 597, 599, and 600 December.

RICE:
General Comments: Rice was higher again yesterday on what appeared to be follow through fund short covering. That buying faded late, and so did the prices. The buying is appearing despite ideas that USDA will increase US production estimates on Thursday. Futures rallied more than $1.00 per cwt. last week. Farmers think prices are too cheap and are still concentrating on harvesting in most areas. The second crop harvest in Texas and Louisiana will be underway soon. Good to excellent yields have been reported in Texas and Louisiana so far, and good to very good yield reports are being heard in Mississippi and Arkansas. Cash prices are somewhat weaker as mills and elevators fill up. Milling yields have been acceptable to very good. Export demand has been good, and was especially strong last week as futures moved lower. Good export demand is expected to continue. USDA showed slower harvest progress yesterday as bad weather has hindered efforts in much of the South. Hrvest progress overall isa head of averages. California has also had a slow harvest, but it is usually the last state to finish and will be again this year.
Overnight News: The Delta should see showers and storms today and Sunday, otherwise dry weather. Temperatures should be near normal. .
Chart Analysis: Trends are mixed to up with objectives of 1200 November. Support is at 1075, 1065, and 1050 November, with resistance at 1104, 1119, and 1140 November.

CORN AND OATS
General Comments: Corn was a little lower on ideas that USDA will show bigger yields and bigger production in its new estimates tomorrow. Rains now in the Miwest are keeping the harvest slow and are causig some traders to talk of potential yield loss and damage to crops. Chart patterns remain bullish and point to moves to about 378 December and then just under 400 December over time. The harvest is now delayed due to a lot of rain seen recently in the Midwest. More rain is likely over the first half of the week, then drier weather could return. Harvest data as reported by producers still suggest that the crop can be another very big one, but that USDA might be a little high in its yield estimates. Harvest yield reports appear stronger in the eastern belt than to the west. It has been a warm Summer as average temperatures have generally been a few degrees above long term averages. The warm temperatures have pushed maturity forward by up to two weeks or so. Rain patterns have been very tropical, with some áreas getting way too much rain and others staying relatively dry.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Corn are mixed to up with objectives of 373 December. Support is at 363, 360, and 355 December, and resistance is at 370, 372, and 376 December. Trends in Oats are mixed to up with no objectives. Support is at 279, 270, and 265 December, and resistance is at 290, 294, and 297 December.

SOYBEANS AND PRODUCTS
General Comments: Soybeans and product were lower as the trade looks ahead to the USDA reports on Thursday and anticipates a very big production estimate Some buying was seen yesterday as big rains in the Midwest have interrupted the harvest and created quality concerns. Some damaga from shattered beans or sprouting beans is posible, and other problems could come soon. Futures are also stronger as export demand has been much stronger than anticipated despite the trade war with China. The USDA export sales reports continue to show very good demand for US Soybeans. The trade war with th4e Chinese continues, but other importers have been buying in the US in a big way as US prices are very cheap. They are cheaper than South American prices even with the 25% tariffs. Traders hope this trend continues, and traders also think that China will eventually need to find a way to buy US Soybeans at a reduced rate as they can’t buy enough in South America and other areas to cover their needs. Farmers are actively planting in Brazil and overall planting progress is much ahead of normal. Rains are reported to be just good enough in the Mato Grosso and more than enough in Parana, where some problems might emerge if the rains do not become less.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Soybeans are mixed to up with objectives of 872 and 879 November. Support is at 852, 843, and 837 November, and resistance is at 875, 881, and 884 November. Trends in Soybean Meal are mixed. Support is at 315.00, 310.00, and 308.00 December, and resistance is at 322.00, 324.00, and 327.00 December. Trends in Soybean Oil are mixed to up with objectives of 3010 December. Support is at 2910, 2900, and 2880 December, with resistance at 2960, 3000, and 3040 December.

CANOLA AND PALM OIL
General Comments: Canola was lowr after a rally attempt failed to hold. It is posible that the market hit a short term peak yesterday as the weather is now turning drier nd harvest progress can increase Harvest progress has remained slow due to uneven weather and harvest conditions. Stgronger Soybean Oil prices supported Canola prices, but Soybean Oil was also lowr yesterday. The weaker Canadian Dollar supported prices. The Canola harvest is active, but producers are not selling as overall progress is at least a week behind. Reports indicate slow progress in the western growing áreas due to cold and wet weather. Snow is falling in some áreas, and the harvest in these áreas is stopped. Quaslity and yield losses are expected in these areas Palm Oil was lower on disappointing data on exports from the private sources and weaker than expected MPOB data. Ideas continue that production was starting to increase again. Export demand is much improved last month, and there is now talk that ending stocks will not increase despite increased production. Demand ideas are strong for this month as well. The charts show that December filled a small gap on the daily charts. Ideas are thatt here ill be plenty of production for any demand. Chart trends remain down.
Overnight News: SGS said that Malaysian Palm Oil exports are 351,699 tons so far this month, from 415,275 tons last month. AmSpec said that exports are now 308,380 tons, from 506,212 tons last month.
Chart Analysis: Trends in Canola are mixed to up with objectives of 506.00 November. Support is at 497.00, 494.00, and 490.00 November, with resistance at 502.00, 503.00, and 505.00 November. Trends in Palm Oil are mixed to up with objectives of 2230 and 2290 December. Support is at 2190, 2150, and 2140 December, with resistance at 2210, 2230, and 2250 December.
