Acceptable corn exports, but nothing else to write home about Thursday. Corn had a bid thru most of the day but the funds kept it in a tight range and settled only 1/2 higher, 319 3/4. Wheat was a drag all day and closed down 10 1/2 at 529 3/4. Beans off 5 1/4 with meal staying near unchanged, 836 3/4. Rice roll at firm prices again and we closed 1432 1/2, plus 13 1/2. Rice shipments were solid, but we now have less to ship than last year, and no real new sales on the horizon for 3 months. Dow was 300 lower but fully recovered to 23,407, up 16, while bonds gained another 27 tics to 181.13.
