One analyst says, "Soybeans are higher on the Chinese and 'unknown' demand, but wheat and corn not getting the demand news today and having trouble.
"Much of the buying in beans I think is speculative, but there is spec- selling interest left over as well. Not seeing much commercial action today. Basis levels are very strong and people are starting to talk this up a bit," he says.
Also, at least for me, soybeans made some down side targets and can at least trade sideways for now, he says.
Corn has some downside potential left, but buyers are short bought. So, you will likely start to hear of demand starting to pick up like the South Korea buy today of optional-origin corn. Overall, the market needs bullish news to keep this going, it might just turn sideways now instead of going up or down," he says.

--USDA announces Wednesday that 'unknown' buyer picks up 40,000 mt of U.S. soyoil.
DEMAND has arrived!!
--NOPA soybean crush report Wednesday shows October crush at 153.53 million bushels, up 33.80 million bushels from a month ago. This puts Sep-Oct. crush up over 5% from a year ago.
Wow! We're crushing more, at a time when supplies are tight and South America's next crop is still unknown. Will we have to curttail usage at some point?
--As the November soybean contract goes off of the board today at 12-Noon, watch to see how much premium is transferred to deferred months, one analyst suggests this morning.
--There's a new world wheat number out Wednesday. AgResource sees world wheat production falling to 649 million tons v s. 695 million last year. What do you think? Does wheat drop that much?
Early calls: Corn 5-6 cents higher, soybeans 11-13 cents higher, and wheat 4-6 cents higher.
Overnight grain, soybean markets=Trading higher.
Crude Oil=$0.22 per barrel higher.
Wall Street=Seen opening higher

We're starting to see trickles of demand in the corn market. Why? I think it's because of Brazil port congestion and those Asian buyers looking elsewhere to fill those emergency purchases. The market has been looking for any case of demand rejuvenation. Result equals two consecutive days of higher trading. Now the news of continued smaller world wheat crops. Corn is getting help without asking and looking for it. Up we go!!

Just completed a 90-cent score yesterday from the short side in soybeans, now I've got a buy signal at 1430. Down one day, up the next. You have to have a short memory with these markets, and not get too attached.
