Chartology: Corn Prices Fueled by Persistent Drought

Stock ChartsThis isn’t the way most farmers want corn prices to rise. The persistent drought has lifted December Corn (CZ12) by 50 percent and has many farmers praying for rain.

As illustrated in the charts below, Corn prices have taken flight, bumping up against Spring 2008 and 2011 highs. This band of important resistance lies around 780 to 800 and if broken will speak volumes about the speculative impact the drought may have on yields and subsequent price speculation. The round number of 10 dollars/bushel may become magnetic if prices sustain a move above 8 dollars.
