Edwards Market Thoughts

9/21/18 8:00am

Fall is in the air after a three days of humidity and heavy rains! They always say if you don't like the weather you have just wait around a few minutes it will change, As is the markets as it would seem!

Seems like the lottery yesterday on what caused the rally in the grain markets. Argentine export taxes, Argentine imports of U.S. soybeans (to then go to China), China cutting import taxes and planning economic stimulus, and too much rain in the Midwest made the list.

Some news out of Argentina: The eternally cash strapped country is nearing a deal to secure funding from the International Monetary Fund. If a deal is secured, their currency will rally, which will at the margin discourage farmer sales. That in theory should help U.S. exports. Also, it is rumored Argentina has been a regular buyer of soybeans out of the U.S. gulf. They will crush those soybeans and export the meal abroad. That allows them to satisfy their current sales commitments, while at the same time exporting their whole soybeans to China for a premium.

Dow making a new all-time higher yesterday. Futures trading 34 points higher this morning. Crude up .52 at $70.84. US $ Index firm.

Have we made a seasonal low in CZ18? Only once in the previous 10 years has the seasonal low on the CZ18 contract been made in the month of September. December the most common month of the last 10 years at 4.

DECEMBER CORN:  First resistance is the 20-day moving average at $3.58 ¼. Second resistance is the 50-day moving average at $3.67 ¼. First support is monthly support at $3.40 ¼. Second support is monthly support crossing at $3.29 ¾.
