Monday had nothing exciting over the weekend to feed it, and we mostly had a dull day. Corn saw liquidation with Dec deliveries just around the corner and funds don't like paying to roll a losing trade. 659 1/2, off 8 1/4. Wheat off 4 to 799 1/4, and we appear to still be too high compared to rest of the world, at least for now. We have a crappy start to our winter crop, but the rest of the world doesn't care, and we need to take what is happening to wheat to heart in our other grains if SA yields confirm after Christmas. Argy is still quite dry, so for us, that's a plus. Beans get an 8 1/2 cent pop on lack of farmer selling and really computer churn that finds an easier path to the upside right now, 1436 3/4. Rice up 1 1/2 to 1781 on a really dull day. Financials dead with the Dow off 40 points, 33,735, and bonds up a tic, 125.15. Looks like we are working our way to a nonevent holiday week.
