General Comments: Rice was a little lower before the USDA reports. Trading still reflects the lack of activity in the domestic cash market and the lack of activity is causing some volatility to enter. The market has turned to look for new demand and the spreads suggest that not much is out there. Trading volumes have been less for the last couple of weeks. The cash market is slow and the lack of business is reflected in futures volumes traded. Reports indicate that domestic demand has been poor to average with better consumer demand more than offset by much less demand from schools and other institutions.
