Midday Update

·         Stocks in Asia and US under pressure as factory data from China and US disappoint.

·         Euro factories seem to have shrugged off the Greek issue with the Netherlands, Spain and Italy all reporting healthy growth.

·         Wheat continues to struggle under the pressure of lack of Aussie weather story, disappointing export interest and poor quality in the east. KC and Minneapolis have found new contract lows, but seem to be trying to come off their daily lows. Wheat is currently down 2 to 6.

·         Soybeans and corn are both off their morning lows. November soy down 3 and Dec corn down 2 ½. Fund and farmer length continues to press on interday rallies in lack of more definitive production information.

·         Midwest weather lacks a story for the market, but a hot/dry story seems to be developing into mid-month for Ukraine and European production looks to be going backwards in general.

·         Equity market traders say BASF may also be in the market for Swiss based Syngenta.

·         Livestock is the strongest market with Oct cattle up 2.65, Oct feeders up 3.05 and Oct hogs up 1.95.
