In the outside markets, the Brent crude oil is $1.04 per barrel higher, the dollar is higher and the Dow Jones Industrials are 106 points higher.
Mike North, Senior Risk Advisor for First Capitol Ag, says today's trading offered more of the same. "Corn remains in a quiet range, while soybeans whip in the area of consolidation from the $12.60s to the $12.80s. Export data was supportive and may help corn break out for a brief rally," North says. But, it will need to continue to see more weeks like this one. Otherwise this thing is a yawner."

We must be way too cheap. Just think what these bargin prices must be doing to those third world farmers. Let alone the big iron manufacturers.
People must still want to eat?
