WHEAT
General Comments: Winter Wheat was lower last week and Minneapolis Spring Wheat was higher as are trends trying to turn up again on the daily charts. Trends are still up on the weekly charts. The US and Canada have reduced production this year and so do most exporters around the world. Production is less this year in Russia and internal prices have been strong. 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. The Russian weather has been good for production in northern and western areas but is still trending dry in southern areas and into Kazakhstan. Siberian Spring Wheat conditions have been very good. 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. European quality is a problem due to too much rain in some areas and not enough in others.
Overnight News: The southern Great Plains should get isolated showers or dry conditions. Temperatures should be above normal. Northern areas should see mostly dry conditions today, then scattered showers . Temperatures will be above normal. The Canadian Prairies should see isolated showers. Temperatures should average above normal.
Chart Analysis: Trends in Chicago are mixed. Support is at 728, 718, and 7106 December, with resistance at 749, 757, and 763 December. Trends in Kansas City are mixed. Support is at 735, 730, and 722 December, with resistance at 753, 764, and 769 December. Trends in Minneapolis are up with objectives of 966 and 968 December. Support is at 937, 929, and 921 December, and resistance is at 958, 964, and 970 December.

RICE:
General Comments: Rice closed higher last week and chart patterns are positive once again. Ideas are that demand is not yet strong enough to take up the supply available to the market. The first crop has been largely harvested in Texas and in Louisiana, but the second crop s still in the field and is getting harvested now. Harvesting is winding down in both states now. Mississippi and Arkansas producers are at harvest now. Yield reports and quality reports have been acceptable to many in Texas and are called good in Louisiana. The reports have been good in both Arkansas and Mississippi. Demand was improved last week over the previous week but demand must show consistently strong numbers to give anyone any comfort.
Overnight News: The Delta should get mostly dry conditions or isolated showers. Temperatures should be near to above normal.
Chart Analysis: Trends are mixed. Support is at 1365, 1352, and 1343 November, with resistance at 1386, 1401, and 1408 November.

CORN AND OATS:
General Comments: Corn was lower last week in consolidation trading The weekly export sales report was positive. Demand will be an increasing feature in the trade moving forward as the harvest moves to its halfway point. Trends are mixed to up on the weekly charts and are mixed on the daily charts. Initial yield reports have been mixed, with some lower yields reported due to disease but some higher than expected yields reported in western areas. There are still the drought reduced crops in the northwestern Corn Belt and northern Great Plains to be counted as well. Most of the elevators along the Mississippi are exporting again which is good news for nearby demand. Oats were higher as the market knows that supplies will be tight due to a drought in the northern Great Plains and Canada. There will not be much in the way of high quality Oats for consumers to buy in the coming year.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Corn are mixed. Support is at 527, 523, and 513 December, and resistance is at 536, 539, and 543 December. Trends in Oats are up with objectives of 636 December. Support is at 623, 604, and 594 December, and resistance is at 660, 666, and 672 December.

SOYBEANS
General Comments: Soybeans and Soybean Meal closed lower last week as the US is at harvest. Many producers are harvesting Soybeans first to avoid any potential weather problems. Some are selling to elevators or delivering on contracts. The US hopes to get China to buy more ag products here in the US. The weekly charts still show down trends for all three markets, and the daily chart trends are down in Soybeans and Soybean Meal. Chinese demand has been supportive until now as the country was active in the US Soybeans but China is on holiday this week so no sales announcements are expected. Harvest is moving to the half way point for Soybeans and a harvest low might be seen about that time. Gulf port elevators are coming on line and exports are increasing.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Soybeans are mixed. Support is at 1231, 1228, and 1202 November, and resistance is at 1258, 1263, and 1270 November. Trends in Soybean Meal are down with objectives of 319.00 December. Support is at 317.00, 314.00, and 311.00 December, and resistance is at 325.00 332.00, and 336.00 December. Trends in Soybean Oil are up with no objectives. Support is at 5980, 5920, and 5870 December, with resistance at 6310, 6400, and 6500 December.

CANOLA AND PALM OIL
General Comments: Palm Oil was higher for the week as export demand remains very strong and production remains weaker due primarily to Covid restrictions inside both Malaysia and Indonesia. It was lower today on what was called profit taking. India has been the major importer as the country reduced import taxes. The weekly chart trends are up again and Palm Oil has made new highs for the move and new multi year highs. Canola closed a little lower on Chicago price action as the harvest is underway amid good conditions in the Prairies. The losses were very moderate when compared to the price action in Soybeans. Farmers are bullish and reluctant to sell and would rather work in the fields. The weekly chart trends are sideways. 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 up with objectives of 948.00 and 949.00 November. Support is at 913.00, 900.00, and 892.00 November, with resistance at 933.00, 940.00, and 949.00 November. Trends in Palm Oil are up with objective of 4700 and 5050 December. Support is at 4800, 4590, and 4490 December, with resistance at 4900, 4960, and 5020 December.
