2. Hot Market: Corn Hammered by Shockingly Bearish USDA Report

From our friend Jim Wyckoff at

forex futures; The corn market was dealt a shockingly bearish blow Thursday when the USDA released a U.S. planted acreage report that showed a number way above market expectations. Corn futures prices fell to a new contract low and saw the biggest one-day drop in a long time. There is longer-term chart support at $3.46 1/2. If that key level is breached, then the door would be opened to a move to longer-term technical support at $3.19, basis nearby futures. If the bulls can hold prices stable in the coming sessions, that would indicate there is little downside pressure left in this already beaten-up market.
