On the Corn front, what a comeback. Monday evening the corn market opened slightly lower but later in the overnight the market really got sacked with whispers China canceled or switched U.S. soybean cargoes to Brazil. Corn prices for February in Brazil was cheaper than in the U.S. which triggered more selling. Were sure rollovers from the December contract came into play as well. We also believe China's demand for U.S. corn and soybeans is real and anticipate more purchase orders. Rains are forecasted the next week in dry areas of Argentina and Brazil, but they are also contending with La Nina and the rains could end up being a false alarm. In the overnight electronic session, the March corn is currently trading at 430 ½ which is 2 cents lower. The trading range has been 434 ¾ to 430 ½.
