Corn: As of 7:45- 2 higher

Lack of fresh news had funds selling yesterday as much 9,000 contracts pressuring this market. A well performing stock market and ample corn stocks, not going to make this market very attractive to investors. First notice day for Dec is Friday so if you have unpriced HTA’s and BF contracts vs the Z they will need to be taken care today.

Soybeans: As of 7:45- 6 higher

Soybeans managing to claw its way back to unchanged after trading lower all day. China cancelling 300tmt of beans but 360tmt sold to unknown helped offset it. Chinese crush margin also in question. Ideas of tighter stocks by as much as 50 bringing ending stocks to a snug 120 helping support this market this morning. Spreads firming as the market realizes it needs beans sooner than later.

Wheat: As of 7:45- 2-4 higher

KC managed to outperform the other wheat’s closing ¾ higher in the spot month. Australia and Argentina are currently harvesting. MPL wheat put in lows. First notice day for the Dec wheat contracts Friday as well.
