One analyst says, "Still have a short squeeze in July corn. Cash down since Thursday because it is pegged to the Sept futures. Corn basis also weaker due to elevators unloading July corn rather than roll into the September inverse. That should clear up in a few days. There is still good demand for old crop beans. Meanwhile, pork cutouts strong again this morning, with ribs setting a new all time high (I think)."
