Soybeans extend decline for the fourth day

Soybeans daily chart July 18

Soybean is trading down for the fourth straight day as investors are digesting reports on crop progress. Beans are now testing the 8.700 area.

Currently, Soybean is moving at 8.728, 0.50% down on Thursday. In the last four days, the oilseed has fallen around 4.4% from July 15 highs at 9.125 to today’s fresh bottom at 8.710.

Technical conditions suggest more room for the downside with the 8.660 area as the next support. Below, check the 50-day moving average at 8.615 and the 8.400 as buying zones.

To the upside, the unit needs a close above the 8.800 area to give bulls reasons to believe in a long run. The 20-day moving average will be the next resistance and above there, 9.150.

Corn breaks below 4.200

Price of Corn daily price July 18

Corn is falling hard on Thursday as investors are digesting better than expected reports on crop progress. It is the third negative day in the last four.

Prices of corn fell on Thursday from 4.300 to break below the 4.200 area and trade at lows since July 3 at 4.170. Currently, it is trading at 4.190, 2.35% negative on the day.

Technically, the pair looks bearish with the 50-day moving average at 4.110 and the July 1 and 2 lows at 4.060 as the next supports.
