MARKET SUMMARY:

   Corn futures are 3 to 4 cents higher at midday Tuesday; soybean futures are 
7 to 14 cents higher; wheat futures are 3 to 8 cents lower. The U.S. stock 
market is firmer at midday with the S&P 20 higher. The U.S. Dollar Index is 25 
points higher. The interest rate products are firmer. Energy trade has crude 
.70 lower and natural gas .03 higher. Livestock trade is mostly higher. 
Precious metals are mixed with gold 33.50 higher.

CORN:

   Corn futures are 3 to 4 cents higher at midday with light buying as damaging 
storms work through the central Corn Belt, along with heavily oversold 
conditions still in place with lightly firmer spread action. Ethanol margins 
should remain fairly stable but could narrow if corn buying persists along with 
the pullback in unleaded values. Cooler weather looks to persist for much of 
this week with little moisture concerns. Weekly crop progress showed good to 
excellent unchanged at 68% and 9% poor to very poor, with 41% silking versus 
32% on average, and 8% in the dough versus 4% last week. Basis action should 
remain sideways into midmonth. On the September chart, the 20-day moving 
average at $4.15 is resistance with the fresh low at $3.89 1/2 as support with 
the lower Bollinger Band at $3.74 as the next level down.

SOYBEANS:

   Soybean futures are 7 to 14 cents higher with strong spread action as trade 
tries to firm back from the washout Monday with broad product support. Meal is 
1.50 to 2.50 higher and oil is 40 to 50 points higher. NOPA crush was just 
below expectations but solidly ahead of year-ago levels. Weather should remain 
good for crop development in the near term with the weekly report showing good 
to excellent unchanged at 68% good to excellent and 8% poor to very poor, with 
51% blooming versus 44% on average, and 18% setting pods versus 12% on average. 
Basis should remain mostly steady in the short term with support from spreads. 
The September chart resistance is at the 20-day moving average at $10.96 with 
support at the fresh low at $10.32 1/4 scored Tuesday with deeply oversold 
conditions.

WHEAT:

   Wheat futures are 3 to 8 cents lower at midday with trade unable to follow 
row-crop strength as Northern Hemisphere harvest moves forward despite overseas 
production concerns. Winter wheat harvest is 71% completed versus 62% on 
average, and spring wheat 76% headed versus 78% on average, and 77% good to 
excellent, up 2 points, with 3% poor to very poor. The dollar remains at the 
bottom end of the range with light buying so far, while MATIF values faded back 
to the lows yet again after early strength. On the KC September chart, 
resistance is the 20-day moving average at $5.85, with the fresh low at $5.45 
3/4 as support.
