ADDED HEAT........... Markets had no problem pricing in this week's weather with corn up$. 40, beans and wheat $.50 Monday. We closed last week higher on the week on lack of rain cutting probable quality conditions. But Saturday's weather models took the cooler weather for this week, added a heat dome for Wednesday into Saturday and dried-up any measurable rain expected. This led to sharply higher trade as Sunday electronic trading opened and continuing into Monday. Corn was up limit as corn will have one third of its crop in its key yield development time when yields are made or lost. Weather and its effect on yields will have a much more accelerated effect both ways now on futures. Monday's 3 PM central time weekly crop condition report put corn at 56% good to excellent condition, versus 63 the week prior, 68 a year ago and down for the third consecutive week. Big losers were as expected in the Eastern grain belt with Illinois 37% good to excellent down 15, Indiana 27% down 10, Missouri 34% down 6 and Ohio 51% down 2. With Western grain belt states over the national average traders will over emphasize weather in the Eastern grain belt. Beans came in at 53% good to excellent versus 56 last week, 65 ayear ago and down for the third consecutive week. Big losers were Illinois 35%, down 12, Indiana 24 down 8 and Missouri 26%, down 3. WXRISK.com the AG weather site has a heat dome centered in the Midwest Wednesday through Sunday. Very high heat with only light rain mostly in the western grain belt. Next week looks warm, but no high heat and .75 to 1.50 inches of rain with 70% coverage in the Midwest. After opening higher Monday night off the bullish crop condition report declines, traders took profits. But new players enter Tuesday pushing us to new highs on corn and then more profits taken before settling stronger on the close. Traders have exhausted the weekly news of little to no rain, hot temperatures and the condition report. You can't get any drier or hotter, so fear is weather could turn cooler and wetter even if only mildly and force more profit-taking especially with the uncertainty of Friday's planted acreage report. Should forecast remove next weeks chance of rain, grain will make new highs very quickly. Friday at 7:30 AM central time the USDA releases its final planted acreage numbers. This report could lead to sweeping moves upon its release, so be cautious here. Should the report come and go without any surprises, we will look to be long into the weekend if weather reports suggest. My general opinion is we will continue warmer and drier than normal. As has been the pattern since last October to date. This will push December corn to 6.40 and November beans 14.75. Note, I will be out of my office next week July 2 through July 6 and no grain report. Technicals read like this. December corn support is 5.96, 5.80 resistance 6.40. November bean support is 14.00, 13.75 resistance 14.75. September wheat support 7.30, 7.20 resistance 7.80.
