GRAINS: 08/06/09 Highercloses Wednesday for soybeans, soymeal and soyoil while lower for Minneapolis , Kansas City and Chicago wheat along with rough rice,corn and oats. All of the wheat continue to look weak overall but in major support areas at this time. Corn settled lower again now possibly ending its retracement rally but I still feel the beans with eventually pull up corn near 400(Dec.) which is about as far as corn will go this year if that high. I know some forecasters are expecting hot and dry weather through August 20th which may help give corn and beans a decent rally from here. Oats closed slightly lower again still is in a downtrend and alsoin a strongresistance area(220-235 Dec.).However, oats are forming a potential bottom at this juncture. Rice settled lower but looks very strong overall and is in a BULL PENNANT as shown below.The bean complex settled higher with all three making new highs while the beans andoil also made new recent high closes.
