End of year trade Friday went off with a whimper. Corn slips 2 3/4 to 593 1/4 and wheat did drop 9 to 770 3/4, although wheat seemed overdone and marked for year-end. Switching to march for beans and rice as we are in deliveries, 1485 1/5 rice was a 6 cent gain, again with last minute bids to dress up the close, and beans up 3/4 to 1339 1/4. Will trade SA weather Sunday night. Dow off 65 points, 36,226, and bonds picked up 18 tics, 160.14. Happy New Year, its going to be a tricky one to manage.
