Technical conditions remain weak for the unit, and more declines are expected. Besides, improved weather conditions are hurting prices too. Next supports are at 3.60, 3.50, and 3.40 level.
To the upside, the expectation for rises is low. Any recovery should get a close above the 3.70 area. Then, 3.80 and 3.90 are the resistances.
Wheat tries its second day of recovery, but advance is minimal

To the upside, 4.80 is the immediate resistance; above there, the price needs a close above the 5.05 level to confirm recoveries. Then, 5.30 will be the most significant level to beat at the upside.
Soybeans down but it range
Soybean prices are trading down on Wednesday as the unit was unable to break above the 8.80 level. However, the unit remains trading sideways just above 8.70 per bushel.
Technical conditions are showing some exhaustion on the upside and a potential decline in the next days. With a weekly where other grains have suffered significant losses, soybeans are sustaining prices mostly due to stable conditions for expected supply.
However, overall improved market sentiment regarding the production of the season will eventually send prices down.
To the downside, 8.70 is the first support. Then, 8.63, and 8.50 are the next frontiers before the 8.40 area, where the minimum of August 5 lies.
