huge gap support at 5.40. Bears thought it would race through that support like a knife through butter. It still leaves a huge island bottom unfilled, very bullish. The only question is, how small is the crop getting and how many acres are shifting to beans or taking pp.

Heard an analyst on the radio say that if we lose 3 to 3.5 million acres of corn, we should be fine with a 155 bushel yield. He also said that the price is right where it should be considering the DEMAND.

155 should be off the table at this point. earlier in the year the analyst where talking 152 national yield to equal demand. Since we are rallying we must be below that number currently.

I don´t know how exactly this will affect the market, but there is a major strike going on in Uruguay, which has stopped all country's soybean exports. They suspended the strike yesterday, but they are back stopping soybean shippings and silos around the country. Nobody knows when this strike will end.
