Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors will take today to prepare for the much anticipated USDA Report Monday.

“Although we had another week of disappointing export sales, US grain prices posted some solid gains. The weather forecast is on the drier side the next few weeks, but at least the temps will be tolerable. The dry weather is not exactly what the soybeans need. Expect choppy two-sided trade today as traders positions themselves ahead of the USDA crop production report (to be released 11:00 CST Monday August 12),” Kluis told customers in a daily note.

Hey Al,  Much of the June planted corn....40-50% in the country needs August rain.   It's not just the soybeans.
