Corn  Unchanged
Corn traded lower much of the night but found support late this morning. Weakness in the US Dollar index and dryness in Missouri and Kansas are a couple supportive factors. We are also seeing some poor pollination and some tip back from Illinois. On the flip side over the weekend much of the corn belt received ½ to 1 ½ general rain and forecasted temps be trending cooler this week.
Soybeans Unchanged
On Friday August soybeans traded to 811 ¾ which has not been seen since 2009. Analysts still not expecting any solution with Chinese trade war anytime soon, which continues to pressure the market. Today we will have a NOPA Crush report and the estimate at 159.63 for June crush if realized would be the largest on record for the month. Crush margins continue to remain profitable.
Wheat Down 2-4
Russia Govt lowered projected wheat crop by 20.5 MMT but they continue selling wheat. Alberta reports 75% of the Spring Wheat looks excellent which adds pressure to the spring wheat market. EU wheat prices continue to support Kansas City and Chicago wheat.
