Markets had an almost standstill type of feel to it.  How do you market in a day like today.  There is a move to a weather-related market, as winds pick up & rain has stopped in many areas.  Crop Progress report out this afternoon, any surprises expected?  Stabilization to the ethanol market.  So, IS China back into the market for U.S. beans?  The Real has slipped a bit, is there pressure from South America for grain purchases & China?  Livestock, just like grains had an uneventful trading day.  Feeders did push to some higher money, but not by much.  Cash looks to be steady this week, we have a cattle on feed report on Friday.  How will that effect the trade?  Sue is a bit more price positive to the hog market.


Warmer weather moving in to the Midwest.  Lower corn & wheat mixed beans.  Ethanol margins remain stable.  How much will China and latest ag import halts effect the trade? Does China want more soybeans?  Is there worries about Phase One moving forward?  How will South America factor in?  Marketing year export inspections falling short, no surprise.   Any surprises expected in the crop condition reports this afternoon?  Is there replanting going on in the eastern corn belt?   China is talking of pork cancellations…that will hurt the industry even harder.  What will be the incentive to turn the cattle & hog markets around?
