Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that investors remain leery.

 

“We are finally in delivery of March corn, so look for a near-term low pretty soon. The market still remains a bit uneasy since we still do not have a trade deal done with China. The money feels like it wants to remain on the sidelines. ” Kluis told customers in a daily note.

"The money looks to want to remain on the sidelines" from Alan

 

Now there is mind numbing dribble if ever it existed.

1. The money could care less where it goes

2. The managers of the money are not staying on the sidelines,they are getting short - the cause of the price decline

3. "remain" on the sidelines....see #2...not remaining anywhere

4. Spec selling driving prices down in late Feb/March is a very bullish event btw
