Corn and beans were lower in overnight trading after USDA forecasts for global stockpiles topped expectations in yesterday's WASDE report. Corn lost about 2 cents while beans were down about 5 cents. Wheat lost a penny. Aside from WASDE, the USDA also released its export sales report, which was a mixed bag. Sales rose week-over-week for all three crops but fell from the four-week averages. In weather news, it's going to be cold overnight for several nights in several Midwestern states from Missouri east through Kentucky. March Madness rolls on, and sadly my Nebraska Cornhuskers won't be in the tourney, as usual. Thankfully hometown team Creighton is carrying the torch for the state. And let's not forget about the Cyclones, who need no introduction! Have a good weekend!
Here's what happened overnight:
Brent Crude Oil = 0.5% higher.
West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 0.7% higher.
Dollar = unchanged.
Wall Street = U.S. stock futures higher in pre-market trading.
World Markets = Global stocks rise along with crude.

ILFamer - I'm -- REALLY disappointed in your statement ! Here - let me RE- fresh your memory - Just curious why no one has mentioned that or just choosing to ignore facts again to pad the pocket book?.
Pad the books ? I'm still shaking my head on that one ! So what your saying - thinking ? That somebody just may not be honest with there reporting ? Ken thinks you -- MAY be reading to much Mr Elcheapo lately !
