Mike North, President Commodity Risk Management Group, says that funds and weather are market drivers, right now.
“Funds continue to liquidate their position in the bean market, now that support has been violated.  Rains in recent days have built a larger crop in the mind of the trade.  Coupled with greater acreage, balance sheets are growing along with the confidence of the bears.  Near term support in corn is still 15 cents lower,” North says.

The rain keeps falling in much of the Corn Belt, though there are still dry areas in northern states including the Dakotas. In some areas it sounds like there's just too much rain coming down. Bean conditions declined week-over-week while corn remained unchanged. More rain is expected in parts of Iowa and Illinois the next two days, according to the National Weather Service. It's expected to be extremely hot in some areas of the southern Plains. 

 

Here's what happened overnight:

 

Brent Crude Oil = 1.4% lower.

West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 1.5% lower.

Dollar = up 0.1%.

Wall Street = U.S. stock futures lower in overnight trading
World Markets = Global stocks lower as Brexit stressors make a comeback.
