Corn: Old crop traders will need to keep a close eye on not only July corn futures but also the spreads for moves to resistance. If July breaks out but the spreads don’t, it would not be advised to get too bullish in the July corn just yet. For the short term, look for corn to continue seeing general support, if not a small bounce, with spread traders offering the most active movements. Approaching the June 28 report, look for more general corn support…Ryan Ettner
Soybeans: Monday's crop rating showed that 85% of the crop is now in the ground. The trade was looking for 86% of the crop to be planted. We usually have 92% of the crop in the ground by this time.

Allendale has a long-term bearish view of for the new crop beans and is currently looking for a “fall low” at the $10.54 level so we continue to recommend producers take advantage of rallies to get more downside coverage…Jim McCormick.
