Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors are influenced by the outside market volatility.

“Traders are hoping the outside markets are able to calm down and regain composure after the initial kneejerk reaction from the coronavirus wears off, ” Kluis stated in a daily note to customers.

Kluis added, "Technically, the soybean chart is trying to turn higher. The CBOT wheat chart held trendline support. Lastly, the corn chart tested support and rebounded. All of these charts lean in favor of the bulls."
