From our friend Jim Wyckoff at JimWyckoff.com

beans futures; The grain market bulls are out of the shoot in good fashion to start the new year. Technicals have improved in soybeans, corn and wheat recently--led by soybeans. Some fresh speculator and commercial demand are featured in the grain markets early this year. Also, some adverse weather in South American soybean regions is also helping out the soybean market bulls. Make 2017 a great year!!
