The market struggled again today closing corn down 5 and beans unchanged. Funds were sellers of 4,000 lots of beans and 15,000 lots of corn. The eastern part of the Midwest is getting rain today and so the nervousness of lack of rain is easing there. There are more chances of rain for the rest of the Midwest later next week and so the tension there is diminishing as well. The corn in the field really looks pretty good, for the most part, there’ some that got hit pretty bad with wind last week but then again there’s a larger portion that was left untouched and looks phenomenal. The weather forecast next week is cooler and so while we’re waiting on the next shot of rain there won’t be too much stress on the crop. Time will tell but for now, it’s still very much a weather market and right now, the weather is perfect.
