Higher markets today with corn and beans trading higher and wheat lower.

Wheat pressured on poor world demand; corn & beans supported on huge fund shorts.

Midday maps appear a little drier for parts of La Pampa, Cordoba and Southern BA.

Equities closed near unchanged after trading higher most of the day; crude oil pressured and gold sharply lower.

Funds are now short 58k corn, 52k beans, 21k wheat, 5k meal contract; net long 615 in soyoil.

A 3rd French delivery location has stopped accepting delivery of wheat due storage concerns.

US dollar rallied to a 7-mo high vrs the euro; Goldman Sachs sees parity by year end.

Interesting to see grain under government loan (as of Nov 17) is double from a year ago.
