DTN Closing Grain Comments 07/06 14:03
Grain, Soy Round-Tripper; Minneapolis Falls to 12th Straight Lower Close
Following Tuesday's donnybrook to the downside, one would have thought
Wednesday's early bounce might be the beginning of a much-needed correction.
That was not the case, as early strength in grain and soy markets was
short-lived and the bearish onslaught continued. However, a late-day recovery
sent corn, soybeans and meal higher for the day, while all three wheat markets
closed lower in wide-ranging trade.
