The chart above looks at Corn over the past 30-years and applies a 2-year rate of change to it. Over the past two years, Corn is down around 45%, been a rough go of it for sure. Could that lead to future opportunities?

Below looks at the best performing assets over the past week (calculated at 8:30AM Central last Friday morning).

At this time, Corn futures look to be working on a breakout of a 2-year falling channel, which is a positive for them. Corn now looks to be testing the top of a pennant pattern at this time. Should it break above this level, it could attract more buyers.

A large unfilled weekly gap remains just above the $6 level. If Corn would fill this gap, some big gains would take place.
