the overnight temps were around 5 degrees and no snow cover on the wheat and no measurable precipitation for the past 45 days.........and the wheat market went down ? the drained brain disease has moved west.

Good questions all. Jeremey - The market remains in its downtrend, as indicated by the weekly stochastics discussed in the blog. However, both the slower moving red line and faster moving blue line are well below the oversold 20% level (the former closed at 17%, the latter 13%) and could soon establish a bullish crossover (fast moving over slow). At that point the secondary (intermediate-term) trend should turn up. Volatility remains low, but has not sparked noncommerical buying as of yet (Fri CFTC report showed noncommercial net futures down to only 7,038 contracts with longs decreasing and short increasing). Kevin - To close out the year I'm recapping my 2013 Market Outlook Presentation I gave in Chicago at the DTN/The Progressive Farmer Ag Summit in my weekly On the Market columns. This past Friday was soybeans, with the next two weeks going over corn and wheat (based in large part on SRW factors). John - I agree that the crop is showing signs of serious trouble (On the Market column from a week ago), but I still think traders might wait until next spring before buying into possible problems. Thanks again for all your questions.
