THE BULL OUTLOOK FOR GRAINS
GRAINS: 2/9/11: CROP PRODUCTION. USDA SUPPLY/DEMAND Higher closes yesterday for Minneapolis, Kansas City and Chicago wheat along with rough rice, soybeans, soymeal and soyoil while lower for oats and corn ahead of the all important monthly crop production and supply/demand reports. Add to this China’s dry weather affecting their wheat crop and the need for corn and who isn’t bullish?. A bearish report could be devastating in the short term but, either way, the longterm outlook remains bullish for the grain complex. Minneapolis, KC and Chicago wheat continue to be in strong uptrends with Minneapolis making its second best close since August 2008, KC its best high and close since June 2008 and Chicago a new CONTRACT HIGH AND CLOSE. Oats and corn settled down slightly but remain very strong overall. The bean complex closed slightly higher also, as we all know, in longterm uptrends also. BUY SIGNALS FOR CORN, SOYBEANS, SOYMEAL, SOYOIL, MINNEAPOLIS, KANSAS AND CHICAGO WHEAT. CALL FOR DETAILS!
