Looking ahead, one analyst says, "Next week is the last full week of the month. Funds can still cut exposure but don't expect corn and beans to start really buying into the fear of what the October 12 USDA crop report may say until after Oct. 1. Still, watch out for next Friday's USDA small grains report. The Farm service agency report earlier this month acquired statistics from farmers claims from crop insurance from acres flooded out this spring. The report indicated farmers may have lost 3.5 million acres of spring wheat due to flooding based on their number versus the September USDA report. Common industry thinking is acreage losses were 800 t.a. to 1.6 m.a. Either way, there will be fear of a bullish report on Friday as the report will update all wheat estimates. This should give all grains a higher close on the week."
