Daily National Grain Market Summary

  Compared to yesterday, cash bids for corn and wheat were mixed, soybeans were
higher, and sorghum was lower.  With U.S. corn crops stored away for winter and
domestic demand staying active, cash corn prices continue to push higher in line
with their seasonal tendencies and should have room to go higher before farmer
selling becomes more tempting.  The bullish leader of the soy complex is March
soybean meal, thanks to this, the crush incentive in soybeans is now at its
highest level since 2002, so we should see a bullish crush report for January in
Thursday's report from the National Oilseed Processors Association.  Even though
the world has plenty of wheat available in early 2018, this winter's dry
conditions throughout the western U.S. Plains has given noncommercial bears
something to worry about.  Drought concerns could change by spring, but so far,
the trends remain up in winter wheat.  Corn was steady to 5 cents lower.
Sorghum was a 1/2 cent lower.  Soybeans were 10 cents higher.  Wheat was steady
to 8 1/4 cents lower.
