ZS futures; This week’s highlighted Market is soybeans. Soybeans futures are part of the GRAINS family which includes 4 types of Wheat, Corn, Soymeal, Oats, Rough Rice and Bean Oil. All traded on the CBOT/GLOBEX exchange.

On April 26th we posted Will beans sizzle this summer?

Soybean Futures has already had a volatile, "sizzling" Month and we are only half way done. In the April 26th Newsletter we drew attention to the $8.56 support level.. For the next week of May 3rd Soybeans closed at $8.41. The following Sunday May 5th soybeans had a relatively large gap of $.13 and opened at $8.28. Last week Soybean July Futures traded to $8.17 before a short rally to $8.36, finally closing the week at $8.08…$.33 down since the previous weekly close of $8.41. This week soybeans had a second gap down of $.16 opening at $7.92. and has since snap back rallied to $8.4075 closing Thursday just under the May 3rd $8.41 level. Important levels to watch are last week’s high of $8.36, dropping below this high should create more downside Second, the original level of $8.56 to potentially turn from support into resistance from below. Please contact your Broker to discuss trading gaps or support and resistance levels. Good Trading.
