One analyst says that corn acts as if the market has been priced out already, and maybe beans got priced today, too. "Cash markets are still pretty strong, but in corn anyway the price was falling below futures and I think 16.00 pretty much covered the beans. New crop months under pressure from better weather, a little cool but still pretty good for development. Farmers should be looking t selling! A light volume day for me here today, specs tried to buy it last night and tht was not a good idea, today they did not do too much and my farm clients were quiet as were my buy side guys."

Jeff Coleman, The Trean Group analyst and CME Group floor trader says it's a mixed trading day.
"The big three grain markets are seeing mixed trade as front month (July) soybeans are up 33 cents on low volume and the rest of the grain markets steady to lower on the overnight session. First notice day has passed and volume in July corn and soybeans is very low, as there are no limits in those months. July corn futures are unchanged and December corn futures are down 4 cents on heavy volume, as the current good weather conditions throughout the Midwest are ideal for farmers. July soybean futures are up 33 cents on almost no volume and November soybean futures are up a nickel as we head into the close of the overnight session. July and December wheat futures are both slightly higher as the wheat crop seems to be set for the year. Considering this is a shortened trading week, activity in the grain markets should be minimal."
Early calls: Corn is seen 1-2 cents lower (old-crop), soybeans 16-18 cents higher (old-crop), and wheat 1-2 cents higher. Meanwhile, new-crop corn 3-5 cents lower and soybeans are seen 4-6 cents higher.

"It's July. Do you have all of your crops planted (re-planted) and out of the ground?"
Yes I replanted beans in the same area for the third time and they are not out yet. Put the planter away for the year several days ago.
The next farm south now has 6 leaf corn in crooked little rows
The next farmer north has 3 leaf corn ...still has 3 days to get to knee high...might make it.
Going to need a rain within a week

The two on either side are BTO's that aren't getting the job done this year.
In the grand scheme of things they are the exception. In both cases their reach has exceded their grasp.
They are the exception and not the rule around here.
