Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that the outside markets could lead the way higher.

 

“With crude oil and ethanol making new highs for 2019 on Monday, corn prices will eventually move higher,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.

 

He added, “Will the low for the week in the grain markets come in on Monday or early Tuesday, with the high on Thursday or Friday again this week? That pattern could signal a possible change of trend. A close today or later this week above $3.75 in May Corn and $9.12 in May soybeans will be a positive signal for corn and soybean prices."
