Alan Brugler, President of Brugler Marketing & Management LLC, says the feature for today's trade is a 'short' traders squeeze in August beans. "About 40,000 contracts of OI, delivery notices start on 7/31, almost no old crop receipts available for delivery. Commercials will hold long in August, as deliveries can still be crushed at end of month. Not the case for September, but spread traders have it along for the ride.
Rain totals are light, but the forecasts have absolutely no "dome", lots of T-storm activity that on average means most folks get some water. Tough to rally corn in that environment, given largest acreage since 1930's."
Meanwhile, one analyst agrees that the soybeans and meal are leading because of short supply.
"I think that is all it is. The weather was a little drier than forecast, but areas that got rains got real good rains and I think the market is generally reflecting this today. Even beans to some extent. Forecasts imply that areas that got missed should have some chances later in the week, which the market is also recognizing. Talk is that crop conditions will be down 2% this week in both beans and corn good to excellent, which can be but does not have to be. Demand seems quiet to start the week. A slowish start to the week for me spec and commercial."

Yes, I'm told by three central Iowa farmers that the weekend rains were enough to make the crop look like they are improving, but much more is needed. It will be difficult to get some of the crop turned around, unless significant rainfall is received. Now, I drove through Warren County, Iowa, yesterday, after the short rain event. I thought the crops looked relieved from the drink.
