Thursday's weekly export sales report put wheat exports last week at 316 thousand metric tons. down 21% from the week prior. Corn exports were 336 t.m.t. down 81% with China in for 60 t.m.t. versus 900 the week prior. Beans were 227 t.m.t. sold, down from 495 the week prior with China in four 91 versus 331 the week prior. Okay, what's up, simple. Grains were up last week on prices, with corn and wheat hitting the months high. With harvest underway, regardless of crops being smaller than last year, supplies are near-term plentiful. This allows importers, especially major grain buyer China to be patient and buy the breaks and step back when prices rally. After the first of the year when all available supplies have been scooped up by feeders, ethanol producers and exporters, importers will have to pay up to get product and buy strength as farmers won't unlock a bin during winter unless a rise in cash prices knock hard on the door. Funds took profits on long-held grain positions on the opening range everyday this week to book profits ahead of the month end. They took $.14 off Monday's high, $.11 off Tuesday's high, $.22 off Wednesday's high and 10 off Thursday's opening high range. Some of these days saw funds buy right back in off the day's lows, as there still bullish, such as seen Thursday. Selling the opening ranges were great day trades off fund month end psychology but not position trades to hold. When we come in Monday it's the final day of October, leaving only nine days until the November 9 USDA monthly crop report. Goal should be to find a chart low too buy and get long into the report. The market fear will be that the harvest has unveiled a smaller yield for corn and beans. Technicals read like this. December corn support is 6.40. Then the preferred 6.22.
