  • EIA reported Ethanol production at 1.030 mln bbls/day, off 1,000 from last week but still a very aggressive pace. Stocks bumped up 392,000 bbls.
  • Argentine and Ukraine corn prices are pursuing US levels on the global market and gaining competitiveness.
  • Yesterday funds were estimated sellers of 5,000 soybeans, 3,000 corn and 1,500 wheat.
