Twice this year the July corn contract has found support just above $6.00 a bushel and rebounded nicely from that level on both strong technicals and fundamentals. After a gap down last Tuesday mainly on the crop report (numbers came in on the higher side of trade expectations), it appears ready for another test. I am looking for the $6.00 to hold again as it is not only a key support area, but was also an area of consolidation at the end of 2011. We are watching weather reports and planting progress very closely which could have a significant impact on the old crop i.e. July contract as the supplies are somewhat on the tighter side. Also, keep an eye on talks that China may step in as a buyer after the most recent break. This could make for a nice time to initiate a bullish position.
