From our friend Jim Wyckoff at

corn futures; The corn market has been hammered lower the past couple weeks, to pour cold water on and douse a bull market run. The corn market bears are in firm technical control heading into the U.S. Independence Day holiday weekend. The first few trading days following the July 4th holiday are extra important for the grain markets. It's during that timeframe that existing price trends can be accelerated or reversed. It's also a timeframe when extended weather forecasts start to cover the critical pollination growth stage of the Corn Belt corn crop. While the corn market bulls are presently badly mauled by the bears, don't be surprised if another weather scare suddenly pops up during early July.
