Friday Dow weakness is the feature yet again, 21,437, minus 911 points. Bonds up 30 tics to 179.02, but surprisingly well off the highs earlier in the day. Corn down 2 3/4 with ethanol losses weighing more than export gains. Acreage report Tuesday expected to have a substantial bias to more corn plantings, although I ultimately think the farmer is smarter than that and will allocate extra acres to beans. Beans off 1 1/4 to 881 1/2. Wheat closes 2 1/4 higher, 571 1/4, but well off early highs. Rice up 20 more, 1397 and nearing the top of where the options guys make money with the verticals done earlier. Monday trade will revolve around the Dow and evening up in front of the Tuesday acreage report.
