SINGAPORE: CBOT December corn may revisit its Aug. 28 low of $3.64-1/4 per bushel before bouncing again.
The first bounce has ended around a resistance at $3.78-1/4, the 23.6% retracement of the fall from $4.24-1/2 to $3.64-1/4. Three waves make up this bounce. The current wave b may extend to $3.64-1/4, to be reversed by the third wave labelled c.
Resistance is at $3.73, a break above which could confirm the progress of the wave c towards $3.78-1/4.
There is a good reason to believe corn could hover above $3.64-1/4 for a few more days, as this low is near the May 13 low of $3.63-3/4, which works as a strong support.
A break below $3.63-3/4 could confirm the extension of the downtrend towards $3.50, as suggested by a falling trendline.
