Britt O'Connell, Cash Advisor for Commodity Risk Management Group, says that investors are mainly just pre-report positioning.

“Soybeans have impressively been able to find positive territory to start the week. The move up is surprising, given that the Brazilian real has reached all time lows, a massive - if not record crop expected to be coming forward, and a strong U.S. dollar. It's likely that we're seeing a little bit of a positive reaction to China starting to move back towards more 'normal' day to day operations. It seems maybe it has contained the coronavirus.

O'Connell added, "Corn is treading water at the bottom end of the range. With not much to talk about regarding corn, it is hard to find positive traction. Funds continue to be sellers of corn and soybeans, while showing continued love towards Chi wheat."

“Will the bull spreads continue to work in both corn and soybeans? This--plus firming basis--is a positive signal for prices, ” Kluis stated in a daily note to customers.

Wonder if the usda will finally tell the truth in a report or another batch of lies.

Well, the "USDA lying" it`s like the gas gauge on your car it`ll say full, half or quarter but for most of us it never goes dry.  As far as the engine/"grain traders" goes there`s always been fuel at the injector.

My diesel ram truck ran out when the guage showed 1/8. I was sure I could get another 50 miles.  Amazing how much farther I can drive on the top half a tank than the bottom half. But a person needs to know how each vehicles guage is calibrated
