SINGAPORE: CBOT December wheat may consolidate in a range of $4.75-1/4 to $4.80-1/4 per bushel for one more day before rising towards $4.88-1/4.

The range is formed by 123.6% and the 114.6% projection levels of a downtrend from $5.43. It serves as a resistance zone, which is strengthened by a resistance at $4.77-1/2, the 23.6% retracement on the downtrend from $5.65-3/4 to $4.50-1/2.

A drop below $4.75-1/4 could signal a failure to break above the resistance zone. A bearish target at $4.67-1/4 will be established then.

A break above $4.80-1/4 will be confirmed when wheat rises above the Sept. 10 high of $4.83-1/2. The rise could be extended into the range of $4.88-1/4 to $4.94-1/2.
