The marketing year for soybeans began Sept. 1






ancy and are largely ignoring the fact that it's extremely dry in the US southern Plains right now. It'll be interesting to see if they take notice. Frankly, I'm surprised they haven't yet. Wheat was down about a n$3.84ickel while corn and soybeans were little changed. Money managers lowered their bullish bets on corn and beans, but only slightly, through last week. The weather maps are active today with winter storm wraed 1arnings and watches in much of the Midwest. Parts of Iowa and Minnesota could get 9 inches of snow from the storm. 

Here's what happened overnight:


Brent Crude Oil = 0.1% lower. 

West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = 0.2% lower.

Dollar = down 0.1%.

Wall Street = U.S. stock futures mixed in pre-market trading.

World Markets = Global stocks mixed as oil futures little changed.
