Mike North, Senior Risk Advisor for First Capitol Ag, says the old crop/new crop spreads are again the feature in soybeans. "Investors are picking up the slack following several days of liquidation.  Option expiration has corn hanging out in between its two most owned strikes ($5 and $5.10).  Wheat is seeing support from growing tension in the Ukraine and ongoing concern about quality in the southern Plains."
