05/17/2015 – Soybeans

Issued: 05/18/2015

July soybeans:

1. As noted in our recent soybean report, Thurs., May 14 was the next important daily bottom in July soybeans with a test of $9.52 expected. This prompted aggressive long positions for a test/attempt at $9.70 (or higher) into Mon., May 18 (+/- 1 day).

2. However, our protective sell stop at $9.51 was hit on Fri., May 15, resulting in a loss on the position.

3. July soybeans closed above $9.52 on Fri. and today session advanced as originally expected which may prompt further long entry attempt. Will update as the market confirms.
