Corn Prices

Corn prices gapped higher but are below the 2018 highs. The on again off again peace summit with North Korea is adding to price volatility but appears to have buoyed prices. Resistance is seen near the May highs at 412. Target resistance remains near the June 2016 highs at 4.39.  Support is seen near the 10-day moving average at 4.03.  Momentum has turned positive as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) index generated a crossover buy signal. This occurs as the MACD line (the 12-day moving average minus the 26-day moving average) crosses above the MACD signal line (the 9-day moving average of the MACD line).
