WHEAT
General Comments: Wheat markets were lower again last week as the markets prepared for the next round of USDA US and world production and supply and demand estimates that will be released today. Futures have also been under pressure as the market searches for demand. Ideas are that feed demand for Winter Wheat has been strong in the Great Plains, but export demand has been harder to find. Export sales reports so far have been rather routine and USDA implied improved demand due to less world production in its updates last month. USDA will issue new production reports today. Some changes are possible for Spring Wheat due to good weather in most areas but dry weather in areas near the Canadian border. Some adjustments are possible for White Wheat as well. Most of the Winter Wheat harvest is over so the data from the harvest should be available for SRW and HRW estimates. There could be some stronger estimates for domestic feed demand, but USDA made many adjustments to the demand side of the ledger for Wheat last month and might not change much this month. The weather remains dry in much of the Midwest and Great Plains, but some rains have been noted in the Northern Plains to slow harvest activity there. USDA showed that the Spring Wheat harvest was just getting started in its reports last week and should show moderate progress with the Spring Wheat harvest this week.
Overnight News: The southern Great Plains should get scattered and light showers this week. Temperatures should be near to above normal. Northern areas should see scattered showers and storms. Temperatures should be near to above normal. The Canadian Prairies should see mostly dry weather. Temperatures should be near to above normal.
Chart Analysis: Trends in Chicago are mixed to up with objectives of 527 and 551 September. Support is at 496, 490, and 483 September, with resistance at 505, 507, and 510 September. Trends in Kansas City are mixed. Support is at 411, 403, and 393 September, with resistance at 427, 430, and 436 September. Trends in Minneapolis are mixed. Support is at 519, 514, and 512 September, and resistance is at 525, 528, and 533 September.

RICE
General Comments: Rice was lower last week trends are down in this market. The trade will be very interested in the USD reports that will be released later today and will look closest at the acreage estimates. Ideas are that USDA has been too high in its planted area estimates due to all of the rain at planting time. This data will be released in conjunction with the production reports. Yield reports from southern Louisiana and Texas are not bad, but are not as strong as they could be, It is possible that USD will trim its yield estimates in the reports today. production could be less but USDA need not make any real changes to the demand side of the ledger after making some positive demand adjustments last month. USDA noted stronger than expected domestic demand last month and export demand has been good all year. All this could imply that the Rice market makes an early harvest low this year and turns higher in the short-term.
Overnight News: The Delta should get mostly dry conditions. Temperatures should be near to below normal.
Chart Analysis: Trends are mixed to down with no objectives. Support is at 1130, 1127, and 1121 September, with resistance at 1141, 1152, and 1163 September.

CORN AND OATS
General Comments: Corn closed lower on ideas of little demand and improving crop conditions. Traders were also liquidating positions before the USDA reports today. USDA will issue its first state by state production estimates and also updated acreage estimates. Corn planted area is likely to be less in the reports that will be released later today. Yield estimates are just a guess right now as the crop in many areas is not mature enough to make many judgements. We took a one day crop tour of central Illinois over the past weekend. Areas west of Interstate 55 and north of Interstate 80 showed a lot of prevent plant area that was still black soil or planted to a cover crop. The area was significant as it seemed that one-third to one half of this region had not been planted. Significant prevent plated area was noted near Pontiac and east of Bloomington as well. Prevent planted area was also noted south of Kankakee. Most of the crop is just silking or in blister now. Only a few fields were in milk or dough or starting to dent. It is normal for the crop to be at least in milk and usually in dough by this date, but this was noted only south and east of Bloomington this year. Calculations for yield estimates were just about impossible to make. The crop needs warm and wet growing condition from now on this year to reach best yield potential, Forecasts for now call for relatively cool and dry conditions, so the crop is likely to remain stressed and progress will likely remain slower than normal.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Corn are mixed to up with no objectives. Support is at 407, 401, and 400 September, and resistance is at 413, 417, and 418 September. Trends in Oats are up with objectives of 295 September. Support is at 272, 269, and 267 September, and resistance is at 276, 278, and 282 September.

SOYBEANS AND PRODUCTS
General Comments: Soybeans and Soybean Meal closed a little lower last week in anticipation of the USDA crop reports that will be released later today. USDA plans to include a state by state breakdown of production but will have little information to make good estimates. US planted area to Soybeans is expected to increase as farmers switched to Soybeans from Corn in some cases as planting got very delayed. Some producers probably planted Soybeans as a cover crop on prevent plant acreage as well. Prevent plant acreage was significant on our weekend tour of Central Illinois with the most noted north of Morris and west of Interstate 55. Significant prevent plant area was noted near Pontiac and west of Bloomington. The rest of the crop was late a just flowering or setting pods in the most advanced cases. Soybeans in the western part of the trip tended to be very small and ranged anywhere from half a foot to a foot and a half tall. Crops were most advanced south and east of Bloomington and the crops in these areas were in the best conditions. Many areas were showing stress and needed a good rain. There is not much rain in the forecast so crops will most likely continue to be stressed even though it is not real hot.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Soybeans are up with objectives of 896 September. Support is at 861, 856, and 849 September, and resistance is at 882, 887, and 896 September. Trends in Soybean Meal are mixed to up with objectives of 305.00 and 312.00 September. Support is at 294.00, 293.00, and 291.00 September, and resistance is at 303.00, 305.00, and 307.00 September. Trends in Soybean Oil are up with objectives of 2960 September. Support is at 2890, 2880, and 2860 September, with resistance at 2970, 3000, and 3040 August.

CANOLA AND PALM OIL
General Comments: Canola was a little higher again Friday on speculative buying tied in part to hopes for more demand from China as it moves to lift quotas and tariffs on vegetable oils imports. Farmers are not selling any of the new crop yet and processors and exporters want to set some prices. The weather forecasts call for moderate temperatures this week. Most areas are seeing better weather now, but the weather has been dry and sometimes hot in many growing areas until recently. Growing conditions are improving after rains in the last couple of weeks, but there are areas that are still reported to be too dry. Traders are expecting good but not great crops right now. Palm Oil was closed for a holiday. Buying also probably came as the China-US trade war is causing China to consider dropping quotas on world vegetable oils imports. The market still expects limited upside potential, but the charts show that the market has broken out to the upside. There are ideas that there is plenty of production and supply to meet any expected demand. Stocks in Indonesia have increased for four straight months.
Overnight News:
Chart Analysis: Trends in Canola are mixed to up with objectives of 461.00 November. Support is at 450.00, 448.00, and 445.00 November, with resistance at 457.00, 459.00, and 463.00 November. Trends in Palm Oil are up with no objectives. Support is at 2150, 2120, and 2100 October, with resistance at 2210, 2240, and 2250 October.
