TRADE  ESTIMATES.............. We started the week's reports with our Monday weekly export inspection report, telling us how much of each grain was inspected for near term export and becomes a gauge of demand. Wheat saw 29.7 million bushels of wheat inspected by the USDA for near term shipment up from 24.8 the week prior , 17 a year ago and four-week average of 22 m.b. This report continues to show demand running over a year ago due to the Russian wheat disaster and smaller European crops all hit by  dry conditions. The jump over the week prior comes as Middle East business has picked up as governments there are buying food in hopes of civil unrest slowing. Egypt was a big buyer of 170,000 metric tons of  world wheat over the week end. Look for exports in that region to continue to be supportive for wheat demand. Though demand is not great,  it's certainly considered good. It's good enough to expect Wednesday's USDA crop report  to show a lower ending stocks number. The average pre-report trade estimate of 20 major brokerage houses and statistical firms polled came in with a ending stocks number of 810 m.b. versus 818 last month and 976 last year. This 810 is what's expected to be left over come June 1 the beginning of the new marketing year for wheat. Corn and soybean marketing year begins each September 1. The 8.10 is still more than ample supplies and leaves little threat of running out. If we come under 800, we will rally on the opening but it would take 750 or less to be bullish and hold the gains. Wheat technicals read like this, March support is 8.50, then 8.25 and 8.10. Resistance is 8.65 then 9.00. After Wednesday's 7:30 AM central time USDA crop report has its reaction on the market, wheat goes back to near-term demand focus......... Corn weekly export inspections came in at 26.6 million bushels down from 33.8 the week prior but over our four-week average of 21. No surprise here as feed grains usually see lower exports the week of a USDA grain reports such as this Wednesday. Pre-report trade estimates see corn ending stocks dropping again to 736 m.b. versus 745 last month and 1.708 b.b. last year. It's a small drop of 9 m.b. and would not bring much of the report day reaction so the market looks to look to  report day for any surprises to trade. The small drop in ending stocks comes from production shortfalls in Argentina the worlds number two producer exporter. There is some thinking more corn usage here the last month will show up after record snows and cold in the Western plains leaving cattle to be fed  more to keep weights up. Little things add up to a small cuts  in stocks, but we always fear a surprise. Corn technicals read like this. March support lies at 6.60 then 6.44. Resistance is 6.80 then 6.94. Bean export inspections held its own for a report week coming in at 41.3 million bushels versus 42.7 the week prior and four-week average of 38. Key world player China was in for 22 versus 29 the week prior. Anything over 40 m.b. is bullish for beans from a demand point. Pre-report trade estimates for the Wednesday crop report had an average bean ending stocks of 135 m.b. versus 140 the month prior and 151 last year. It's down and will be viewed as friendly but not a big enough drop for a big report day  rally. We need 120 or lower to be bullish Wednesday and hold the games. If all  three grains   come in at the average estimate we will see a higher opening then profit-taking pulling them to the downside on the day. Then Thursday traders will come in and say what report. They will quickly turned back to what the numbers mean to the big picture in  corn and beans and that's bullish. Corn and beans look to continue their climb to find a price that slows demand and finds more acres planted or we could run out in 2012. Watch out for the last half of February as there is greater downside risk  present if funds decide to pull bigger profits out before re-entering in mid-March ahead of what wheat dormancy breaking and talk of acres to be planted in the southern Delta surface as they plant first. They southern Delta question is will  farmers plant more cotton and less beans and corn. Some cotton groups are estimating 15% more cotton acres planted.. Here's your bean technicals. March support lies at 14.25 then 14.00. Resistance at 14.65
