Soybeans 10 year charts below.

Low for SX last month was 812.25 but we've bounced back!  Current price is $872, 60c off the lows but $1.88 off the $10.60 highs at the end of May. Did we make an early season low?

 Harvest pressure and negative seasonals have been offset by wet weather in the forecast for the past week.   A pattern change to drier weather will kick in at mid week. Tariff news is an extreme wild card.

Soybeans: Wider perspective: Currently still close to 10 year lows !!!!!

Charts November contract.

Soybeans 3 months below......bottom in???

Corn 10 year charts

CZ  made new lows on September 18th  at 342.5 but has bounced back to 368.5.  Now 26c off the lows but 60c off the late May highs. Wet weather is slowing down the harvest in the WCB and helped provide price support the last week. More rain early this week........then it dries out.

Lows are likely in. 

Corn historical perspective:

Who remembers $8 corn not so long(5 years) ago

It's Columbus Day, so the export inspections and weekly crop condition report won't be out until tomorrow.
