Marketline Report for Wednesday, July 3rd
SHELLADY ... "Boy oh boy, it was a shocker. You don't see a report that shocking very often. We got much more planted acres than we thought we were going to get, which sent corn limit down or spiraling lower. That's a tough one because it was nowhere near what the market was expecting and when you get a shocker like that, it takes a little bit for the market to kind of correct and digest, but that's something we're going to have to watch going forward. And, in saying that, across our desks the last day, day-and-a-half, we've started to see some people watching those numbers, dip their toes back in, and start maybe picking up some calls or maybe picking up some futures, but they're definitely getting more interested and seeing that maybe this might be the first level that you can safely get back in after seeing that big flush that we had since we got that shocker of a number, more planted acres than we thought we were going to get on Friday."
