SINGAPORE: CBOT September corn may retest a resistance at $3.70-1/2 per bushel, a break above which could lead to a gain into a range of $3.77 to $3.83-1/2.

The resistance is identified as the 161.8% projection level of a downward wave C from $4.60. The bounce from the Aug. 15 low of $3.58-1/4 consists of three waves. The current wave c is capable of travelling to $3.77.

The bullish divergence on the hourly RSI suggests a further gain as well. On the daily continuous chart, a morning star forming between Aug. 14 and Aug. 16 is a convincing signal that the downtrend from $4.64-1/4 may have reversed.

The current bounce may be as strong as the one from the Aug. 1 low of $3.87-1/4 or the one from the July 2 low of $4.08-1/4.
