Corn- Up 1
Corn was lightly traded on the overnight as it is up only 1 this morning. The overall demand for U.S. corn remains strong globally, but the domestic use is seeing some problems as the ethanol industry is dealing with poor margins and pull back on grind at some facilities. On the technical side of things, March 19 futures sits below its 100 day MA of $3.79 and the 50 day MA of $3.80 ¼.

 
Soybeans- Down 1
Light trade on the overnight with soybeans down 1. Some U.S. soybeans reach China ports, and U.S./China trade has not quite reached the 5mmt level yet. Though another round of purchases is expected, it seems like a large percentage of all the news was already factored in nearby. Its your classic “buy the rumor, sell the fact” scenario.
 
Wheat- Down 1
Spring wheat is down 1 on the overnight. Austrailia is harvesting right now, as we add to the global supply, although their crop was reduced by a bit of a drought. Argentina harvest is figured to be about 68% complete.
 
Safe Travels to everyone this weekend and through the holiday season!
