Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says the grain market is pulling farm markets lower.

“The continued weakness in the wheat market (several contracts fell to new contract lows on Monday) is pressuring corn prices as well,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.

 

Kluis added, “Will the corn market and wheat market bottom in the first delivery days on the March contract? That is a key seasonal time that I watch for a possible change of trend and low in the corn and wheat markets.”

I'd hoped for a little bump up here, as I'm close to some sell orders, but it went the other way.  Oh, well, I guess patience is a virtue.
