Monday morning blues

Grain and soy markets are suffering from a combined case of trade tariff blues and good weather flu this morning, and we have prices under pressure as far as the eye can see. With the exception of beans, we have not really suffered any more than what we had already

Who asked for this sequel?

Once again yesterday, markets across a vast spectrum were stricken with TTT, Trade Tariff Terrors. Not unlike movie sequels that never seem to end, President Trump once again has stepped up the threat level and announced the U.S. would raise tariffs another 10% on $300 billion in Chinese goods.

Those muscles look a bit flabby

The grain markets continue to struggle with a rather benign weather outlook for the next week or so but before they completely stumbled, still managed to pass the bull-baton over to beans who have anxiously been waiting for an opportunity to try and forge ahead and show us just what
