What can you do with kids these days?

Oh sure, you have been misbehaving and disrespectful all week long, but now that it is Friday and you want to go and play for the weekend, you give us a little boost in price and think all will be forgiven. Need I remind you that you have beat the

Brief respite

The early morning calm in the corn and bean markets yesterday turned out to be little more than a brief respite before the storms as these markets succumbed to the global psychological panic that plagued a number of different arenas. As I commented in yesterday’s letter, for the first time

Just waiting for Uncle Sam to arrive

It would appear that grain and soy markets have settled down into a new range and will probably be content to remain here as we move toward the August reports that will be released next Monday. Trade survey estimates are filtering in and here are the averages that we have
