Light two sided trade on the overnight session as we see at least the Dec contract merge into a range of 3.56-3.63.Progress report showed that the nation is 96% done with corn harvest compared to 97% LY.

Experts predict Brazil is 60% planted and crop estimated around 100mmt. Weekly export inspections were strong at 79.4mb vs the 27mb needed weekly. Exports to date are about 2.5% behind last years.
