EARLY MARKET FEATURES

Corn – Dec futures down ½ to down 2 overnight… Corn is having trouble with resistance at its 100 day moving average, and will now likely test the bottom end of the range.

Beans – Nov beans down ¾ to down 4 overnight. Looked like there might be some positive trade news with the G20 meeting, but the market is not optimistic. The strong dollar is not helping anything

Have a great Wednesday!   Darren, Brady and David
