WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, Wheat and corn traded mostly lower with soybeans
closing with modest gains. Wheat was pressured by the rain and snow that moved
into the Plains and Midwest, along with the lower grains. Corn continues to see
slow export demand and weak ethanol data. Soybeans saw some strength on
positive demand. Buying support for grains have not seen consistent buying
interest the last couple of weeks as we go through the Holiday season. Weekly
export sales are delayed this week due to the Holiday week, but will be more
than a week old upon release which should limit impact on Friday. Wheat was
mostly 15-20 cents lower. Corn was mostly 5-10 cents lower. Sorghum was 9-17
cents lower. Soybeans were 10 cents higher.
