   Corn trade is 3 to 4 cents with trade holding gains from the rally yesterday 
as we look to consolidate into a higher range with pressure from trade concerns 
and spillover from soybeans. Ethanol margins remain stable with unleaded demand 
holding the recent plateau. Warmer drier weather for most is expected into next 
week. Basis has shown isolated signs of strength this week. Export sales were

   Soybean trade is 3 to 5 cents lower at midday with rangebound action 
continuing as the ral slides in tandem with the dollar this AM, and China 
tensions remain at the forefront. Meal is $1.00 to $2.00 lower, and oil is flat 
to 10 points higher. South America continues to move along harvest wise with 
strong shipments out of Brazil likely to continue unless port issues redevelop 
due to strikes or virus related absenteeism. Crush margins remain solid for the 
time being. Export sales were softer from last week, at 644,300 metric tons of 
old crop, 203,000 metric tons of new crop, 127,000 of meal, and 56,600 of oil. 
The USDA also announced 132,000 metric tons of soybeans split between crop 
years sold to China. The July soybean chart support is the 20-day at $8.43 
which we are testing this AM with resistance the upper Bollinger Band at $8.57.


   Wheat trade is 1 to 7 cents higher with Kansas City trade leading again as 
the dollar tests 98 on the index. Russia looks to have mostly average to 
slightly above rainfall near term with France and Germany drier near term, 
while the plains look to trend warmer and drier. Kansas City is at a 49-cent 
discount to Chicago on the July with narrower action so far, while Minneapolis 
is back to a 1 cent premium. Export sales were solid at 209,800 metric tons old 
crop, and 465,900 metric tons. The July Kansas City chart support is the lower
