PRB Technicals: Corn Market (week ending 4.8.16)

The short term trend appears to have turned higher after the spike down we experienced in reaction to the USDA report. While the intermediate term trend on a weekly continuation chart is mostly sideways to a touch lower. MACD remains negative, but the fast line has turned higher, and continued upward movement will cause a cross higher. Looking ahead support in the May contract will be at 360’6 (10 Day Moving Average), while resistance is at 364’3 (20 Day Moving Average).
