To the upside, 9.000 is the next resistance with the 9.150 area as the frontier to break. To the downside, the unit should break below the 8.660 before thinking of more drops and a change in the short term trend.

Corn positive after WASDE

Price of corn is trading positive on Thursday following a brief rollercoaster following the publication of the WASDE report.
