US markets went sharply lower caused by a selloff in stocks and commodities reacting to recent Iran situation.
Soya and wheat was overbought so there is an expected correction ahead of this week’s USDA report.
March beans are at present c. $9.41, technical support at $9.30, if broken the next resistance is $9.15.
USDA report is expected to cut corn and soya yields, combined with the signing of phase 1 of the US - China trade agreement will support bullish sentiment. However counter to this, record South American soya crop (6.6 billion bushels?) and increased US soya area is fuelling bearish argument.
