There are several story lines to the grain markets right now.  The wheat market is experiencing continued strength in the cash market due to high demand from Brazil for high quality U.S. hard red winter wheat.    As we have been pointing out for the last few weeks, the futures market in wheat continues to hold weekly support as seen by the chart below.  This means that there is a lot of buying support at this level and that this could be a low in the wheat market.  Wheat has been dragged down by corn since it is not competitive in the feed market at these corn prices since corn and wheat are substitutes for each other.  Another challenge is that U.S. wheat is priced out of the Egyptian market since it costs about $1.00 more per bushel than wheat delivered from the Black Sea and France.The USDA reported an increase in the expected corn harvest.  Estimates are now in excess of 13.8 billion bushels.  As we have shown for the past few weeks, the corn market is holding the monthly support trend line as seen in the monthly corn chart below at the moment, but there is downside risk to the $4.20 area.  Therefore, due to the larger than expected corn harvest corn could go down in price further, to the $4.20 area.
