Jack Scoville, PRICE Futures Group vic-president, says that yes, the report tomorrow should show plenty of supplies out there. "Today is a nice day, weather-wise. So, I think it is much related to lack of offer than any big buying. There is just not a lot of selling pressure in the market from any producers anywhere. Also, I think the price action overall has been good and both corn and soybeans kind of held some support on the charts. I have seen no real news out there to support a rally. Seems to be mostly spec buying. My guys both buyers and sellers are dead quiet. Not a big up move today, but kind of impressive that it can move higher either way."

I received this note, this morning, from a freindly grain analyst:
"Yes, back in February, you selected your five-year farm program. But you still need to sign up each year to get the program payments. The program sign-up deadline is tomorrow September 30, 2015.
Even if you think you have done the 2014 payment paperwork, call to confirm it," the analyst stated in a note to customers.
