In the overnight session the grains traded lower again with corn down 5 ¼ cents, soybeans down 3 cents and wheat down 8 cents. The U.S. dollar is up 1/5th of a percent and crude oil 66 cents lower. Corn is trading just above the 50 percent retracement level at $4.09 from the rally that started June 16th and recently peaked at 4.54 ¼ cents on July 14th. November soybeans is trading around the $10 level with a mild support level around $9.92.

The grains are moving lower this morning with the forecast showing a positive outlook for crop development over the next 10 days. The eastern Midwest which has been getting hit with excessive moisture in the early part of the growing season is expected to receive only limited showers, while the outlook in Iowa and Nebraska is for the weather to turn wetter for the next 10 days. Heat events are expected to be limited with only a few mild events expected over the weekend and early next week. Canada is also expected to receive beneficial rains for their wheat and canola crop.

This morning there was some export activity with NASS reporting 120,000 metric tons of U.S soybeans to be sold to china for new crop delivery. A tender was also issued this morning by South Korea’s corn processing industry association for 55,000 metric tons of corn from either the U.S, Brazil or Argentina. The corn is to be delivered in November and the tender closes on Wednesday.
