To the downside, in the case soybean breaks below the 8.900 level, it will find resistance at 8.800, late May highs, the 200-day moving average line at 8.735, and the 50-day MA at 8.530.
Grains investing report for June 26
On the big chart, prices of corn are now moving in a range between 4.400 and 4.500, consolidating levels after a rejection from multi-year highs at 4.600 reached on June 17. Technical indicators are mixed with moving average aligned to the upside, but momentum and oscillator indicators are signaling more correction.
Wheat, on the other hand, has resumed its uptrend after a brief setback performed on Tuesday. The grain is now trading 1.30% positive on the day at 5.400. It is heading to test yesterday’s high at 5.430, and 11-high at 5.450 reached on June 17.
Technical indicators suggest more room for the upside with moving averages turning positive and RSI and MACD signaling sustainable gains.
Sugar is falling on Wednesday as the unit was unable to extend recovery beyond 0.1240. Previously, sugar stopped a 5-day decline at 0.1210 on Monday, and it started a recovery that was, however, capped at 0.1240. It happened again on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The odds are now pointing to the south with technical indicators mixed but most aligned to the downside.
If the pair finally couldn’t break above the 0.1240, it will extend its rejection to the mentioned 0.1210 area, and below there, sugar will find support at 0.1180 and then 0.1135. The last frontier lies at 0.1120 for now.

Technical indicators are pointing for more gains in the short and middle term. To the upside, if coffee maintains levels above 106.40, it will extend benefits to breaking above the 108.00 area. Then, the psychologic 110.00 area and the 111.10 level will be the frontier.
